New baby

An ‘old’ friend from a crafting forum and fb recently gave birth to a daughter so I made a card and knit a few things for her.

DSC01250 This jacket is my all time favourite to knit for babies, probably every baby I have knit for has worn it . 

The lemon hat is a new pattern for me but i’m pleased with the way it has turned out. The lilac one is another favourite with it’s heart button to match the ones on the jacket.

DSC01253The card features an image and background papers from Teddies Friends by Peerless designs.

DSC01379It is the first time I have tried this style of card with the cut-out inside but I love the way it has worked out.

The hanging panel is suspended on fine wire and is the same as the one on the front, it is double sided .

Dragon Hunting

In Newport, Gwent where I live there have appeared some 60 large dragons throughout the City and surrounding areas this past month. Officially called Newport Super Dragons.

Here is the link to the official website.

During August while we had Faith with us we went out and about and actually found almost 30 on the first day. Sadly I didn’t think to take a picture of her with each one.DSC01300DSC01365DSC01362

At the weekend I took Sallie and we found a few more. DSC01529DSC01532 DSC01531 DSC01530

Sadly some of them have had to be removed from their original positions and placed indoors for their own safety. Can you believe that some mindless (drunken) people actually ripped one of it’s plinth and threw it in the canal.

There are always some in the Den being repaired, this is such a shame as they look so beautiful around the place and have provided much pleasure for so many people. They will be auctioned off in October for charity.
