Thought I'd best introduce you to my new arrival. I won a tree chameleon on Donna's blog last week and as you can see he has made himself comfy on our Christmas tree. Thanks Donna.
I also told you I would update you on the Christmas Fairy Mice I was knitting for my little Granddaughters.
They are now finished and here you can see them posing for you hanging on our Christmas tree. The little girls came down here Saturday to dress Nanny Annie's tree and 2 year old little P was really wide eyed at each and every little treasure she handed to her Mummy to put on the tree.....happy memories. I'm sure she will love these little mice.....I do :-)
On Friday my baby [now 23 years old!] had to have minor surgery and came here afterwards to spend some quality time with his Mum [and to be fussed over and spoiled a bit of course] :-) We have always enjoyed special times together and when he saw that I had been knitting he asked me to teach him to knit so he could make a little teddy to give to his girlfriend to hang on their tree. We spent most of the day laughing, dropping stitches and learning new skills :-)
Here's the proof :-) I thought I'd best not put a photo on of his face cos I'm not sure he would want his mates to see :-)
Here you can see the results of our fun. The one on the right is the one he knit and mine is the one on the left. He was soooo proud of it and his girlfriend G was really thrilled with it too. I have put a pin by the side to let you see just how small and cute the little bears are. They are made using a free pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits....she makes some really stunning things too.
I plan to knit one as a Christmas gift for one of my blogging friends so watch this space if you want to be in with the chance to win one :-) I know a lot of you don't knit and thought you just might like to have one of your own.
