May 2017


I am just going to share with you a recap of May!

Customer Orders

I only had two Etsy orders in May, but one of them was for one of my all time favourite makes: a rainbow star blanket!

I just love these baby blankets. They are gorgeous! The colours work really well and they overall effect is stunning.

The Etsy other order was for my very popular bear hat & booties set, this time in mint green:

This set works really well in this colour.

I was able to complete an order I made in April, as my friend had her gorgeous twin boys:

As you can see, the bear hats don’t have to have bear buttons on them, they can be personalised with initials, which is what I did for my friend. I love the effect!

Etsy Shop

I made a couple of ready to post items for my Etsy shop, which you an order now!

The first is another bear hat, aged 1-2years.

Yep, another mint green one! This is made using cotton yarn and it lovely!

The second Etsy make was a brand new addition to the shop, and a first for me…pom pom hat & booties set:

I love this! A baby girl would look adorable in this set! It is age 0-6months. I need to make more of these!

Baby Basics Blanket

I only completed one blanket to donate in May. It is this giant granny square one:

I didn’t make the centre square, but I did all the other rows. I love the effect of the flower in the middle, it’s so pretty!

Lounge Blanket

The big achievement for me in May was completing my lounge blanket!

I have written a blog post about this so I won’t bore you anyone with it…just know that I still love it!

Work in Progress

I finished May with a few projects on the go…

This first one is another blanket to donate to Baby Basics.

This blanket is a present!

Both of these are new patterns to me. The top one is a ripple blanket in cotton yarn, and the bottom is a mitered granny square blanket in acrylic. As I type this, they are both now finished, and I loved both of them! I will definitely be making more of both!

The other project I am working on is the Attic24 Hydrangea Blanket. I haven’t got very far with it, but already I am in love!

I can’t wait to see this grow!

Have a good month!
