She is now almost 4 months old and weighs exactly a stone!
Isn't she the cutest? She was a tad on the grumpy side (possible teething suspected) and tended to cry when Pooch held her - but then I feel like that sometimes too - but otherwise we had a lovely day with her yesterday. Lots of food, dog stroking, tortoise gazing, baby jiggling and a bit of knitting. I had already finished this for her:
(Look at that scowl!) Her Mum kindly admitted it "looked better on" having initially been rather aghast at what I described as a 'cross between a gnome and a clown hat'. I've now got a little raglan cardi on the needles for her.
On the way back we travelled through some rather idyllic english countryside.
I should make the most of it since I have now resigned my job! We are tentatively looking at the third week in November for departing to Tokyo so there is a lot to get done before then. Not least of which are ten of these!
I got the Clover mini bias stuff this week. It is a thin silver iron on tape which I plan to use to outline the initials I'll be adding to the stockings. I've actually made all the stockings now but have yet to quilt or assemble them, never mind the initials. So still a little bit to do there. Before I dash off to get started I felt I ought to share this which I happened across on a craft tutorial app.
Next time you want to do a self-portrait try sitting with your mouth open and put a hedgehog on your head. And please do share the result.
