I blogged recently about my adorable youngest niece. Today I want to share something I've made for my eldest niece. She is one of the most extraordinary people I know and I love and admire her beyond words. She recently had her first baby (making me... gulp... Great Aunty Jo) who is an utterly peaceable, contented and happy baby. For her I made this little granny square blanket. It really is small. Just big enough to tuck around those chubby little thighs while she's in her car seat.
|Gosh, it really needs blocking, doesn't it?|
And for my beloved Mum's birthday, a rather "rustic" (i.e. squashed!) looking pavlova. I stuck some sparklers and a candle in the top and it seemed to go down well.
