Heart-breaker!

While I have enjoyed making all sorts of animals for so many customers. 
It has been a great joy to make these cute-as-a-button dollies!


That's Jennifer!

She was named after a wonderful friend of mine who was my advisor on colours 😊


Every one of these dollies has been different. 
The colours of clothes and hair seem to change them!

But no orders for a little boy yet!

I wonder when I will get an order for a boy doll? 

I can make one in the colours of your choice 😉

Catching up with the huggables!

 Great to chat again!

Hope you have been well and things are happy in your corner of the world? 


It has been a while since I got an order of huggables,
but I really enjoyed doing this pair!

Checking up with the customer to make sure I am getting colours right 
may at times seem extreme, 
but I really want to produce something 
that the customer will be absolutely thrilled with!

I want every customer to be SO happy with each order, 
that they will order again!

Blankies galore!!!

Hey there! How are you doing?

I've been clicking those knitting needles super fast lately!


Most of my work has been blankies.


In fact, I have now made over 100 of them! 


So now I am working towards my next goal of 200 blankies. I wonder how long it will take to make that many?

I have been getting orders of other products, but that is in another post! 

See you then!

The twins!


Oh look at them! Aren't they gorgeous!

My customer fell in love with them 😊


This is Rachel


And this is Rosie!

My customer has twin granddaughters - a video was taken to show the presentation of Rachel and Rosie - the 12 month old twins just fell in love immediately!

Hi! I'm Jake!

Another order done! Such a huge sense of achievement!


Jake is a handsome boy, and to be the best friend of a little boy in the US! 

I'm sure they will have lots of fun together!

Do you have a friend from your childhood that you loved lots and lots?

I did it!


I don't just knit!

I also try to take photographs, and the one above is one I just love from the spring. See the progress as you go up ? I think it looks incredible!

Now and then I knit up a toy, and fall in love with it! 

Like this girl!!!!


It's amazing though, when you see these dolls in a photo, you think "awwwww, how cute!"

What you may not know, is that they are MUCH cuter in real life!

Watch the door!

I'm always up for a new idea. Especially with knitting 😉

They don't always come out perfectly, but that's OK, we all have to start somewhere!

I needed a doorstop, and had a pattern, which I loosely followed. 

I can see where I could change it...

If I ever needed to make another!



Welcome to 2019!

Can I introduce you to Darcy?

Recently decided to name all the toys I make. 

This could get difficult at times, but I have a few friends/family I can get ideas from when I get stuck.

This year I was very fortunate to get some new design work done, and that included labels which I attach to my work. The other day I realised that there is one blank side on the label, so here I will write the name!!! 
Be sure to check the label for a name, if you do an order!

I understand some recipients might not like the name, but that's OK, it gives a start on the naming process ☺☺

Anyway, after all that, can I introduce you to Darcy?

The kids ;)

Our kids are always wanting me to make them a toy - but they have enough!

Recently they asked for headbands, so I did my best!


The hard bit about headbands is that they stretch when made of yarn! But the kids were happy, so I am too!

Knitting and Life

There are memes for everything these days
or so it seems!

I find it amusing to check if there are any new ones relating to knitting, and now and then, I find one!


I enjoyed that one!


Since I started knitting so dedicatedly, I have found it almost impossible to sit and just do nothing!
I have to have my hands busy, or I feel VERY unproductive!

Have you got a hobby that keeps your hands busy? Or do you not get much time to sit anyway?

Blankies are always popular!

I get regular orders for blankies, and it is easy to see why...

I have blankies of different colours available at all times,
then the customer lets me know which animal they want,
and it only takes a few hours for me to finish!

Here was an order for a new baby down in Tasmania - 
I get regular orders from a customer down there!

I'm loving making these shawls!

Shawls are SO much fun!
Recently I was gifted some sock yarn, and enjoyed making it into a shawl. 

The result was gorgeous! 
You be the judge! ☺



Heart-breaker!
