A love gift

You may recall that in 2017 I made our son a HUGE wool blanket - one of those forever gifts - to never forget his Mummy's love...

Our daughter wasn't so keen on a woollen blanket, but decided a cotton shawl would be great!

So we found some lovely bright colours...

And a pattern that worked with with being random with those colours...

And here it is!!!

An amazing custom order

I like custom orders, and shawls certainly are different from toys.

I have recently acquired (thanks to my birthday) some books with shawl patterns, and I am looking forward to trying lots of them out!!!

A recent winner in one of my competitions decided she didn't need any toys, but a shawl for herself was perfect....

So after lots of ummmm-ing and ahhhhhh-ing...

She chose this pattern: 

I'm not big on tassels myself, but I think they made this shawl look gorgeous!

Here is a close up of the pattern and the harmony of the colours - beautiful!

An Aussie Blankie

So far Lorraine Pistorio has not designed a koala blankie, but I had a customer who just HAD to have one!!!

So I did my best... Popping my koala on this pile of leaves!

Probably not the prettiest koala, but maybe with a little more practice I will perfect it ☺
