esmee isabelle

Introducing Esmee Isabelle, my new little granddaughter…..who is beyond adorable!!

She was born on Tuesday 1st May at 10.40am weighing 8lbs 4 1/2 ozs.

A sister for our beautiful Amelie who celebrated her 2nd birthday on the 2nd May.

Mum and Esmee got home from hospital that afternoon, so we were able to have a little birthday tea party for Amelie.

So grateful for our two gorgeous granddaughters.

The beginning of May is going to be very busy from now on!! 🙂

happy easter

Another month has passed and we are now a quarter way through the year already…..really hard to believe.

March was a busy month we celebrated my daughter’s 30th birthday and Mother’s Day! There were trips to County Fermanagh and Edinburgh to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival which was fabulous! There was lots of crafting too with some bunnies for my shop, one for a raffle for the Flower Power Fund over on Instagram and one in a bed for my granddaughter. I also managed to finish my Carbeth Sweater in time for our Edinburgh trip. I even got to spend some time in the garden this month which was wonderful.

Wishing you all a happy April and a very Happy Easter too, thanks as always for dropping by!

end of year

Hi everyone it has been a while since I’ve been here!

It seems so much has changed in the past couple of months, November still had quite a bit of colour in the garden…….

…….and then December brought the snow, it was lovely however to see the little bulbs pushing through!

In recent days though it has become quite mild again.

There has been some knitting for the little person in my life over the last few weeks…….

…….a little person who is just beginning to realise the magic of Christmas!

There has been lots of festive animal making too.

They have all now been posted off to their new homes and I am so grateful for all the support given to GRD this year.

I made 55 little girls during 2017 and I finished off with a little bunny called Yule who was my 350th animal!

Today is the Winter Solstice and one of my favourite days of the year because today the light begins to return and that is such a lovely thought.

And according to the GRD calendar it’s only 10 days to Pre-Spring…..wonderful!!!

In the meantime though there has been lots of Christmas preparation going on and it will be lovely to celebrate the day with my family around me.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas with those you love!

Happy Christmas! 🎄
