This is my first newsletter for the New Year. I hope everyone had a good Christmas, which seems like such a long time ago now especially with all the dramas over flooding and rain. This was followed swiftly with colds, coughs and flu symptoms in January. Not a brilliant start to the New Year I know. I hope February has been a little better.
This newsletter should cheer everyone up as these little ones made me smile and are a brilliant start to the New Year. I was fortunate enough to make a little something for each of these beautiful babies!
The first of our arrivals was Sophia weighing in at 7lbs exactly. She has strawberry blond hair (which is red hair to the rest of us) and she is absolutely stunning. I made her a hat and bootees as all women like to accessorise and she is modelling the bootees for us in this picture.
Next came a very tiny and very early little Albert (Bertie to his mates) weighing in at 4lbs 4oz. He is home from hospital now and doing wonderful, as you can see. He is wearing a teeny tiny cardigan that I made a while ago and which I modelled once on a teddy as I had nothing small enough at the time! I also made him a hat and bootees and packed some goodies in a little suitcase. Just like Paddington bear – he was going home. He is tiny at the moment but I am sure he will catch up with the rest of them.
Number three is Edward (Ned to his pals) weighing in at a very healthy 9lbs 2oz. He is showing off one of our hats which I hope is keeping him warm.
Lastly we have baby Mohammed Aweighing in at 6lbs 7oz. We made this little chap a bag full of goodies which included hat, mitts, bootees and cardigan plus a blanket to finish off the outfits.
As you can see, our babies are all gorgeous and we wish them a healthy and happy start in life with their heirloom-quality knits (and potential hand-me-downs!).
That’s me done for now. I will not leave it so long next time as I have lots of ideas to share with you. Take care.
Lots of love
