Knitting

Both my daughters like me to knit dishcloths for them. They can also be used as face flannels. For the plain cloths in this pile I have used Sirdar Sinply Recycle yarn, this is made mostly from recycled cotton with some acrylic added and knits up really nicely. 


                                  

This little baby hat was made in Debbie Bliss Eco baby fair trade organic cotton yarn again this also knits beautifully. For this hat as well as the baby jacket in my previous post, I used patterns from the book below. It contains some lovely baby patterns and I plan on making some more hats using the recycled yarn in the bottom photo. I also have a fair bit of quilting to get on with, but hand quilting in warm weather isn't great! So I think I will stick to knitting for now :)

Grandchildren

The twins and their brother are on holiday in Berlin at the moment so I have taken the top three photos from my daughters IG account. The girls are wearing the skirts I blogged about in my previous post and the bottom photo is taken from my other daughters IG account of Lilhle wearing the outfit I made for him and lying on his quilt that I made a while back. 

There is still no news on his future, my daughter and her husband would love to adopt him and are praying for a way forward with this. I'm just hanging in there thinking I would love for him to be my grandson but at the same time praying for Gods will to be done.

If you have a minute check out my daughter new blog where she writes about her shelter work
