Knitted in 100% organic cotton and with the border and main being knitted as one (endless tangles, but the end result is worth it I feel) the Rainbow Blanket was designed for my friend Ariana's first baby, and was finished just in time for the baby shower in June 2017. Pattern being drafted and will be available soon!
Leo's finished blanket
Sandra Paul's beautiful Painted Roses Blanket worked out brilliantly in monochrome colours ready for the arrival of little Leo in November 2016. This blanket is slightly thicker than knitted baby versions, and so perfect for winter babies.
I had a couple of weeks off work between jobs and was going to a wedding one weekend, so decided to make my outfit whilst I had some down time! I was so happy with the final product, and will be using this pattern again in some lighter summer fabric.

Old school sampler
When the beautiful Zoe Maeve entered the world I had decided to go old school and make her a birth sampler - I have one my Gran made when I was born and I love it now as an adult. This detailed cross stitch was completed just in time for her first birthday!
When one is sick... one will knit. And drink lemsip.
This is the beginnings of a self designed cushion cover, using bee stitch, which is a simple dual colour technique I've only recently discovered.
