A dress for Tilly

Every now and again I like to stretch myself and make something out of the normal, I have been doing crochet for a number of years, mainly blankets, hats and the likes but was desperate to try something different.
That’s where Tilly comes in, she is a friends Granddaughter and is the sweetest little thing ever.
This is her.

I started a dress and I knew she would be the perfect model for it and she didn’t disappoint me, isn’t she just precious.
It is made in DK yarn and has an underfrill attached in white
She is so content, such a good baby.
And utterly scrumptious 
I have another project for her as she needs a Christening shawl, her gown is incredible and sh has a big day ahead of her,
but for the time being I’ll leave her here to melt your heart.

Sleepy Mouse Crochet.

Once upon a sleepy crochet mouse. I really need an extra large one of these to snuggle up to. 
Time for beddybyes sweet sleepy mouse

The flutterby yarn is so soft and scrumptious, I’ve given the legs safety joints as I remember my own gorgeous teddy had when I was a child, actually if I have to be honest my favourite teddy was a pass me down from my brother who is 11 years my senior and yes it was so loved it was threadbare.

I think this little one needs to be loved just as much as my old teddy bear.

I may have to do a little friend in soft grey for this little one.

Flutter by Unicorn.

With a bit of flutter by yarn a Unicorn is born.
A work friend is expecting her first Grandchild very soon an as they know it will be a little girl I thought this was very fitting. I just love a bit of crochet whilst watching TV, I like to have busy hands.

Such a pretty little thing and so soft and snuggly.

Her mane has sensory locks for the baby to hold, It was hard to give this cutie up haha!

Isn’t she adorable 🥰 I just hope that baby will love her as much as I do.

A load of old Balloons.

I loved my time in it but always hated the travel, and the staying away from home but loved the people and the craft.
I can now be found in the Party Shop at my local Morrisons and I have to say that I am loving it, still creative and a great set of workmates.
This is some of the things that we do there.

Table settings for parties.

Columns and numbers.


Special events.

A touch of rose gold and pink for a Christening event.

6th Birthday.

Black tie events.

Sweet hampers.

And the occasional well done.
As you can see, it is still creative and lots of fun.

Full Moon Sea Swim

 It was a full moon Sunday the 22nd August and myself and my Daughter headed off down to our beach for an open water swim with loads of the people that regularly swim there as it was a full moon evening.

We have a wonderful secluded part of the beach between two piers that we swim in, it’s quite sheltered from high waves.

In the above video you can see that there was quite a few of us in the water and yes…. It was very cold tonight, I swam in a rash suite but note to self I need to use my wetsuit on an evening.

It was a beautiful evening and the conversations were flowing, made some new friends too which is always nice.

It’s so pretty, as you can see.
Below is my daughter enjoying the moment

The moon didn’t make its appearance until we were ready to come out but as you can see it was a spectacular picture when it did arrive.

Thankfully we had a cup of hot tea when we were getting dried and changed and it was needed, my teeth were chattering with the cold, all in all a beautiful evening.
