My son made this masterpiece!
He loves crysatals. These are made by mixing lots of epsom salts with water on the stove until it dissolves, then insert a pipe cleaner or two in the shape you desire. Let it sit overnight. If all goes well you get some awesome sparkly and glittery crystals.
I made these for Lilly.
Red and white never goes out of style does it?
I knit up quite big mittens and threw them in the washing machine for a whirl. They came out nice and fluffy and just the right size.
This post was looking a bit Christmassy. So while I began writing this yesterday I decided that I had to make a Christmas doll to include in the post. Lilly helped me to select the fabrics. Then today I lazed on the sofa embroidering whilst she danced and sang and played with her dolls.
I made Lilly a doll to stuff too, because she loves to stuff with me. I had a ball embroidering little snowflakes on Rannveig to match the snowflakes on her front!
I decided to play around with the embroidery on the heart too. I think the magical time of anticipation for the upcoming holidays is upon me. Perhaps all this busy merriment was initiated by my mother's call yesterday telling that she would be coming to visit us this Christmas? This little elf finds that to be the most delightful news!
