The creation of small things continues here at Ruthsplace. (Though there is a cardigan for Gorgeous Girl and one for me on the needles at the moment).
My brother’s wife is expecting a baby any day now. I’ve knitted a small hat.
This is the top.
And the view from the sides.
I dusted off my beading supplies a few weeks ago and made some more stitch markers.
I’m pleased with how they turned out.
Gorgeous Man recently bought me some patterns from the very talented Two Little Banshees. He bought the elephant, the hippo and the platypus.
So far Gorgeous Girl and I have made a baby platypus.
Gorgeous Girl is the artistic director and selected the fabrics and the felt for the nose. Mummy is just the piecework hack who puts it all together. I’m hoping to find some time on the weekend to make some more of these as well as a larger platypus. The pattern is really clearly written and easy to follow.
The Two Oceans Aquarium is a wonderful place to visit and on the weekends they have free activities for the kids. On a recent visit Gorgeous Girl got her face painted.
Gorgeous Girl put a skirt on her head last week and declared she was a chef.
She cracks me up.
