A small bag!!

Just felt like making a small bag so here it is..

 And then I decided it needed some sort of decoration to make it a bit more colourful, hence the flowers and vines.
Now I can fill it with a washer and some nicely perfumed soap, maybe some hand cream or a hankie, and then it can be included in the monthly raffle we have at our orchid society meetings..  

I love making these small gifts, wrapping them in some cellophane paper and donating them to the society. Every little helps as they say..  :)

Visit with Oliver!!

Had my first visit with little Oliver my first great grandchild.. What a joy!! Such a beautiful  baby boy.. Could have brought him home quite easily but may have had a fight on my hands Lol..

 I decide to give him both the teddies after all, seemed the only way to go really.. Also gave him a small quilt I made so mum can put him on the floor, an owl hat I made in cotton ( I thought I'd made it too small but it was even a bit big) and some little suits for when he is a bit bigger. Sizes 3 to 6 months so it will be a while before they fit him. also a little plush owl that I bought. 

Had lots of cuddles too of course Lol.. Can't wait for the next time we visit, hope it's not too long, don't want to miss seeing him grow..

Yay!! It's Finally Happened!!

My first great grandchild was born at 1.04 am this morning.. Our dear little Oliver James arrived weighing in at 6lbs 10 ozs. Mother and son both doing well.. 
Such a little cutie.. Love you heaps already little man..  :)

Now I just have to decide which of the following crocheted teddies he is going to get..
Finished this one a couple of days ago.
Finished this one last night.
Here they are together. He might even get them both. Unfortunately I can't go near either of them at present with sore throats and colds in the house. Just have to wait (impatiently) I guess..
