What with all the crazy-can’t-keep-up-stupidly-busy-ness that I encountered back in January, I completely forgot to post pictures of some of the gifts I made for people as part of my Handmade Christmas Pledge! Oops! Here is a selection of some of them:
A knitted wolf for Josephine
A knitted cat for Kayleigh. She called it Amy Cat! Aww!
A cowl for Jackie
A stocking for the cat.... ahem....
I foolishly forgot to take photographs of some of the gifts I made as I was in such an excited hurry to wrap them and put them under people’s trees! Must remember to take more photos. I absolutely loved taking and sticking to the handmade pledge; sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea and my balls of wool beats going out in the cold and battling the crazy crowds at the shops. I will definitely do it all again next Christmas, can’t wait xx
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
