Little Pip the knitted rabbit has been on a very big adventure. In his little ship, the SS Parcel Box, he journeyed north on a sea of post to Staffordshire where he was united with his new owner, the adorably cute and very diddy little baby Henry.
Pip is a very happy little bunny indeed. He is looking forward to lots of lovely cuddles and many more adventures with gorgeous little Henry.
The very beautiful, spectacularly cute little baby Blaike with knitted kitty Callie!
My utterly wonderful friend Isi (who is currently all poorly sick with tonsill-nasty-itis, yuck! Poor Isi, get well soon my lovely! Mwah!) commissioned me to knit a little grey and white stripped kitty in a pink dress for little baby Blaike, and the other day she kindly sent me this piccie to show me the two of them together. I always really enjoy seeing my creations with their new owners, it gives me a genuine feeling of contentment. Apparently little Blaike holds the knitted kitty all the time and likes to suck it’s nose! How sweet is that? Oooop, I’m going all gooey now…. I can’t help it…. I’m going to have to say it…. awwwwwwwwww!!! And now for a random outburst of baby doting speak…. “iddybiddyboobooboowajawajawoodododoboo”! Ahem… Sorry about that… Now I just need to find me some squadgy cheeks to pinch… Any volunteers? Anyone? No? Oh well.
A very good family friend of ours had a baby boy called Robbie earlier this year, and a few weeks ago it was his christening. Robbie’s mummy (Julie) and I used to play together when we were kids, and I remembered that her bedroom wall was covered in pictures of Elephants, she absolutely loved them. As they were her favorite animal I decided to make Robbie an Elephant as a christening gift.
What a handsome little lad, and so incredibly cute! I always love to see children playing with one of my creations, its such a lovely feeling. I go all soft and gooey inside and it reminds me of why I love making things so very much. Thank you Julie for sending me this picture, and congratulations on such a beautiful boy and a wonderful christening xxxx
Well hello there folks of the magic tinterweb madoodle! I hope you are all well and lovely and had a most fantastical weekend.
Tatty Babbit and I have gone on an awfully big adventure to the wonderful shire of Hereford. It’s so very beautiful here! Lots of green things growing and lots of furry things scurrying. Bliss.
Tatty Babbit has been happily united with his new owner Ollie and they seem to be making very good friends, aww!
Ollie and Tatty Babbit, bless!!
My lovely friend Laura and myself have taken a little road trip from Hereford to Swansea, our old university town and stomping ground where we met 8 years ago, my how time flies! It’s been lovely exploring the old place again, all very nostalgic and a tad emotional. We celebrated with a few cheeky tipples at lunchtime. I will admit that it may not have been the wisest of plans as lunchtime drunkies renders me entirely powerless to prevent random impulse buying of pretty things. We went to the gallery of local artist Kerry Evans, I fell in love with one of her paintings and ended up buying it! Oops! I don’t regret it now that I am sober as I love it so very much! Phew, lucky escape 🙂 it could have been so much more random and therefore so much worse.
We are staying in Swansea overnight in a lovely B&B called “Christmas Pie” selected entirely because of it’s very pretty name. We will head back to the shire tomorrow and I will be back in the big smoke by Wednesday. Too brief a holiday for my liking, sob, but very very wonderful. Speak soon my lovelies! Mwah! Xxx
I have to admit that when I was sent this picture I went all gooey inside! What a beautiful and adorable baby! This is Wren, a gorgeous little girl who had her Christening this weekend and received one of my Elephants as a gift. My very good friend Charlie had commissioned me to make it for her, and she sent me the picture to show the two of them together. In fact, Wren’s mummy loved the Elephant so much that she has commissioned me to make another Hippo for a little boy who lives in Sheffield! How exciting! The word of Gizmo and Stitch is being carried North! I feel very privileged. Oh the adventures my creations will have!!! Off to my sewing laboratory I shall go with a skip in my step 🙂 xxx
