A few days after we arrived home a parcel turned up for Gorgeous Girl.
It was from the very talented Kerin who blogs here and here. Kerin is one of the most talented people I know and she creates the most amazing things. Recently she upgraded her sewing machine and overlocker and one of the first things she made was a dress for Gorgeous Girl. She left the hem undone so that I could hem it to the appropriate length.
Gorgeous girl was so taken with it that she insisted on wearing it down to the shops unhemmed. Now that winter is here I need to go and find a few white or pink tops so that Gorgeous Girl can wear it as a pinafore.
Thank you for the lovely new dress Kerin!
I did a bit of knitting while on holiday. Here is a handspun hat.
I hated it in the batt and in the spun yarn, but it knitted up nicely, so goes to show you never can tell. This went to live with the young lady who was caring for Gorgeous Girl while I work. Unfortunately she left us to return home to her parents in Zimbabwe and we are now looking for a new carer for Gorgeous Girl. Gorgeous Girl has been very good about amusing herself while Mummy is working, but life is much easier when we have help.
I finished this spinning before we left, but didn’t get it washed and set until after we got home.
Navajo plied, sock weight.
This is milk protein from a very talented South African fibre artist.
There has been quite a bit of scrapbooking. Here is a page from our trip to Australia last year.
The title letters came from Kerin, and the black letters at the bottom are stamps I bought while in the USA.
Gorgeous Girl has been insisting on “scapbooking” too.
Here is her very first page.
The only thing I did was cut out the embellishment in the top left-hand corner and add the sticky tabs to the back of the embellishment and photo (and the writing). The stickers on the page were in the package from Kerin and were a lovely gift from Kerin’s Mum. They have kept her amused for hours.
