New kids who’ve joined us in time for Christmas

Until they huddled together for their photo I hadn’t spotted a pattern but now I have 🙂

These three girls joined us recently and made friends very quickly.

First is Hazel, re-rooted by Pam Winter Turner and now turning heads with her fabulous tresses.

Then Maisie, a 1968 girl, again re-rooted (I’m not sure by whom) and given a fringe, more of a tomboy this one,  and already at home on the allotment…

…and then little Baby Cinnamon, a 1980’s baby completely re-imagined by Kelly McCrea Wenarsky…..

and a new sister for Baby Shiloh who joined us a few months ago..

Now we’re all looking forward to seeing who comes to live with us next year…we’ll all have to shuffle up a bit but there’s always room for one more 🙂

Merry Christmas from the new kids xx

Latest knits …

These are some of the knits I’ve finished in the last few weeks. I’ve had to squeeze in some baby things and some Christmas knits but now I’m back to knitting for Sasha and Gregor.

This was for my friend’s grandson….mary's grandson

based on this pattern –

I just changed the colours a bit.

I’m almost a Grandma now too so as well as blankets and booties I’ve made this little jumper for a little Sheffield Wednesday fan whose Mum is a Harry Potter fan.

IMG-20170920-WA0000It seemed like a good compromise 🙂

Christmas baubles are fun and quick to knit and I’ve made a few this month as personalised Christmas presents.

Then, of course I really enjoyed having fun with Christmas knits for Gregor….

There are more on the needles (always 🙂 ) and tomorrow I’ll post a long overdue update of all the new family members who’ve joined us recently.

In the meanwhile, this recent adoptee would like to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and hopes that you all find something special under your tree xx

The girls came to the lottie today to check on Bill & Ben

There’s not much happening on the allotment at this time of the year, but we check in from time to time and drop off compost for the bins and make sure the poly-tunnel  hasn’t blown away.

Today we just went to see how Bill & Ben are keeping warm in their buckets (they prefer them to plant pots – they’re shinier apparently 🙂 )

 

They were fine, of course. They love it out here in any weather. They have all kinds of animal and bird friends to play  with. And lots of little weeds 🙂

We noticed our plot neighbour Trudy has got the Christmas spirit so we might have to come back with something just as festive to brighten up our plot tomorrow.
