I hope you’re having a fabulous day! Before we get into this new post, please don’t forget to enter my giveaway! If you look just to the right there, you’ll see a menu of my posts, click on “my first ever blog giveaway” and leave a comment at the bottom of that post! Good luck… I’m hugely excited about sharing one of my hangers… who will fate and Raymond pick?
I am not really one for putting up pictures of myself on my blog, it’s all about the craft here… but this is a post for a special occasion, so I thought I’d share a picture of me (on the left) and one of my most beloved soul sisters, the lovely Ilona. That’s her baby Django squished between us…
Oh carefree days of summer… I miss you and my singlet tops! Don’t we look so lovely and summery! That picture was taken in February this year in Levin where Ilona and her family managed to catch up with us for a few lovely days! They live at the top of the north island and we live at the bottom, so it had been a couple of years nearly since we saw them!
Exciting news… Ilona just had her second baby! Sophia! She was very late… over a week and I was just DYING for her to be born because she was the reason I caught bootie fever! Ilona and family are magical fairy pixie people you see, so I needed to knit some magical pixie booties for the new arrival. I needed to know if she was a girl like I thoroughly believed, or a boy, so I could embellish her knitwear with flowers, or leave it plain!
Django is not to be forgotten… I made him first, a rainbow rasta beanie… it has turned out waaaaay bigger than I expected! Ted looks mighty groovy in a rasta beanie if you ask me… so I’m hoping Django looks just as cool! Bet he will!
And some magical pixie-wear for little Sophia… I can’t wait to see some photos! I was extremely well-behaved with the flower embellishment… I wanted to smother the hat with flowers, but my co-director suggested the one on top with the curly stem and she was absolutely right.
All together now!
Hats and booties are winging their way to the top of the North Island as we speak… about to warm some precious little heads….
I’m having a fantastic break from polytech… It’s lovely having not a hell of a lot to do for three or four days of the week! I’ve managed to finish Leonie’s wrap (although I need your opinions… it’s quite a fashion statement!) and I’ve begun a new knit WIP… plus some more lovely flowers too….
thank you all for visiting and your lovely comments! You truly make my day!
Wherever you are, I hope you’re having a lovely and creative day!
Love and blessings from Alice and Raymond XX
