Isn't this beautiful?
When we were at Frome, last week, I waited eagerly for a certain someone
to turn up with something that I had bought from her ; something to put away
for Meggy, for when she is older!
A gorgeous crib, beautifully made (naturally!) by the very talented Helen !
With a lovely little embroidered pillow, beautiful patchwork cover and
wonderful finishing touches, this is a real delight for a little girl!
I've put in a lovely knitted bunny, which I bought from another
very clever Helen:
I've also included a little rag doll which I happened to see in M&S!
Now all we need, is for one little girl to grow up a bit!
Meanwhile, it is living under my stairs with an assortment of toys in it!
Thank you Hen. It is beautiful and I know it will
bring hours of fun!!
Meanwhile....here's the lucky recipient...
Meggy is almost 9 months old now!
She isn't crawling but is slowly moving around on her bottom!
This, I think, was inevitable as both her mum and dad...and grandma..
She's a very content little girl indeed and we love her to bits!
Yesterday , we went to visit and gave her an early Christmas present...
a little bean bag chair
which Helen (yet another Helen!) and Ben, said they would like for her.
Here she is , proudly showing off her two bottom teeth!
On the way home, we stopped off at Dawlish, for a wander .
Dawlish is the home of the famous black swans!
The black swans were introduced to the town from New Zealand,
by a man called John Nash...who was born in Dawlish but emigrated
After that, he paid frequent visits to Dawlish.
The black swan has been the town's emblem for over forty years.
Finally, I am gathering more vintage fabrics and getting ready for my next vintage fair...
THE HOMESPUN FAIR...
This is the lovely fair at Portscatho.
It's on Sunday 27th November.
Have a great week everyone!
