Another New Baby!



Another very good friend of ours has just had a baby girl, and being in a knitting mood, I knitted her these booties.

And because her Mummy and I served at sea together, I bought her a bib… Navy Intake 2030!

Another bag!



This time a duffle bag, knitted for my friend Kath who is celebrating her birthday today.

Happy birthday, chick! Hope you’ve had a wonderful day. xoxox

Crocheted Bucket Bag



This is a bucket bag I crocheted last week, in aran-weight cotton. I love it – my ‘work-in-progress’ knitting is in it now.

New Baby Girl Cuddles!



Today I had the pleasure of meeting a beautiful new baby girl for the first time, a very precious little bundle. Thankfully her parents didn’t hold back when they found out they were expecting their second daughter, so I had time to work some pink magic with needles and hook. I knitted the blanket and espadrilles, and crocheted the bib and face cloths. There was love worked in every stitch, and it was so nice to finally meet her today.

Welcome to the world, Evie. I look forward to watching you grow. xoxox

Happy 65th Birthday!



Today is Nigel’s Mum’s 65th birthday, and she and Nige’s Dad have been down for afternoon tea (banana cake with lemon icing) this afternoon. I made her a card, and wrapped her gift in a bag I embossed using the fabulous embossing folder that you can only get FREE with a qualifying order ($120) during Sale-A-Bration.

Retro Birthday



My ‘little’ sister celebrates a birthday with a ‘0’ on the end this year, and it looks like we might be overseas when she turns _0. I found a pattern for this fabulous retro-style crochet bag, and had so much fun making it for her. I gave it to her yesterday when she came to Auckland for the day, and she seemed quite pleased! (And Rach – just know that life gets even better at 40!) 🙂

Happy Birthday, Frieda!



We’ve had friends from Sydney staying with us for the last week. They left yesterday, and today is Frieda’s birthday. We celebrated it on Sunday while they were still with us – I baked a chocolate cake, made her a gift, and of course a card. This uses the gorgeous DSP that you can get free at the moment, through Sale-A-Bration.
