At last.

No upstairs, downstairs today. I didn't put in a single stitch yesterday. Instead I spent the day sat right here at the table with my student head on. Yep, I studied and studied. It was an e-learning course. I took lots of notes and then sat the E-exam. I passed. 100% :-)
Today it is lashing down, so hopefully I will get to sew.
But first.....
At long last both Annie and Janice have received their gifts from my 600 posts give away. Both girls were very taken with the tiny socks I knitted. I found a newborn size pattern on Ravelry and just couldn't resist adding a key ring.
I wanted to do a little more with the pears, but I think my choice of fabrics excluded pretty much everything I tried. I settled for the less is more look, just adding a button to the leaf and some primitive stitching and pretty pins in the seams.
For the flower pins I enlisted the help of one of my colleagues. They were fun to make, once I got my hands on the correct type of glue.

I'm off to play.

Receiving such wonderful and totally unique handmade gifts was triply fantastic! That sock seems more like doll sized--it's truly tiny--than newborn, but it has been awhile since I've seen a newborn :) Thanks again for the giveaway!
