Busy week

Hello girls. Hope everyone is well and busy crafting, I'm well and I've been quite busy since my last post. Hubby and I enjoyed his holiday from work and made good use of the fine (if a little cool) weather and got quite a few jobs done in the garden. We also had a day off and went shopping which was nice.
I managed to get a bit of crafting in on an evening  too, I made another couple of bears for mum and a pram blanket (like the one I knitted for eily a while ago). I'd just started knitting a top for myself when mum asked me if I could make someone a pair of knitted slippers like the ones I made before christmas, so my top has been put on hold while I knit those now.
Yestereday I did a bit of sewing and made this dress for Eilys grandaughter. I made a prototype a while ago in plain white fabric but it was much too big in size. The pattern said fits 3-6 months but it was more suitable for a toddler and even showed a picture of a baby wearing it standing up who looked at least one. Hubby and I played about with the sizing and came up with what we hope is a better size for a baby. Its a pale pinky lilac colour with a little white daisy print and then I have added a white daisy trim to the neck waist and hem, it fastens with two buttons on the back.

  1. That dress is beautiful Andie - lucky little girl will look really cute wearing it.

  2. What a super dress Andie - clever girl. Eil will be over the moon with this - it's sooo pretty!!
    Glad to hear you & Hubby had an enjoyable holiday - even though you didn't go "away". Sometimes it's just as good.....
    Happy Easter.

  3. Oh Andie you have made a super job of this lovely dress, they will love it. Sounds like your hands are being kept busy crafting. Thank you for your comments, I read with interest about your dad's bike i will be telling John my partner how uncanny they have the same taste.
    Have a lovely Easter weekend. Julie.C
