Decided to try and take some better photos of Amelie’s Dress today. I had no idea how much she’d grown until I tried to squeeze it over her little belly. How did that happen? I swear it was only yesterday I made that dress for her. The sad thing is she’s only worn it twice… Continue reading Amelie’s Dress

So I’ve decided to do this ‘granny a day’ thing. I’m not sure how it will go as I get bored with doing the same thing very, very easily (which is why I’ve never managed to make a blanket before). But I’m willing to give it a go. Wish me luck.
Dear me from 4 hours ago, I know what your thinking, that ball of yarn doesn’t look that tangled. And you’re right, it is a very pretty color, it would be a shame to let it go to waste. I know you’re thinking it would be a little exercise in perseverance and that you will… Continue reading Dear Me From 4 Hours Ago
