Blush Newborn Baby Cardigan

I knit this wee baby cardigan because I am guilty of worrying about having insufficient yarn to knit a project, then end up having too much.

This was knit in 100% mercerized cotton and will be in my Etsy shop when I've knit a matching hat and booties or shoes, because I still have yarn left over for Pete's sake.

I really, really need a baby girl to play dress up with and rock and coo all over.

Little Country Girl Rag Doll

I made this doll and sewed her some new clothes to match the colour scheme of the room she sits in.  Yesterday, I knit her a little sweater vest to complete her ensemble.

Framed Rusty Tools

I was cleaning out my dad's tool bench recently and found these assorted rusty tools hiding at the bottom of the drawers and decided to frame them because looking at them makes me happy.

I don't know what my dad is going to think when he sees what I've done with his stuff, but they were just sitting there unappreciated in all the glory of their age and rust.

These tools are up to fifty years old, they just don't make them like that anymore.
