Hello! Happy New Year!  Wow, it is a long time since I did a post! hopefully 2016 will be the year I keep on top of my blog! We shall see :) I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, we did, and I have quite a few photos to share with you! So I think I had better get started!

Since it is such a long time since I last posted, I thought I would share some photos from the Summer first, as we did have a lovely Summer and enjoyed so many nice days out, we are very lucky to live quite close to a few different lovely beaches, so we can always enjoy days out there, whatever the weather, but it is particularly nice in Summer ( even though our Summers mean wearing coats to the beach, lol! ), Julia loves the beach!

Julia turned two in October, goodness me! Where does the time go! We made her a special cake for her birthday, a Little Miss Sunshine cake, as she is our Little Miss Sunshine :)

We had a day out at a nearby petting farm which Julia really enjoyed!

 

And she loved the dolly I made her for her birthday too, I love making things for my little one!

Halloween was wonderful! Julia dressed as a super cute clown, and we all went to the seafront, to walk along the promenade to watch all the beautiful lights, have chips looking out to sea, and then walking in the park directly opposite the beach to see all the magical lights, with a certain Alice In Wonderland theme going on :)

In late November, John, Julia and I all went to Beamish Museum, and had one of the most wonderful days out ever! Christmas at Beamish has just begun, so everywhere was completely magical, very old world Christmas, I love Beamish Museum, I could live there! Julia was dressed in her beautifully snug red winters coat, with her red scarf and bonnet ( which I crocheted for her ) on, and she just seemed to fit right in with Beamish wearing this ensemble! She would not keep her mittens on though, her little hands were perishing bless her, so whenever we could, we would wrap her right up under her blanket ( which I also made for her, by cutting down an old throw which was beautifully soft, hemming it and adding a crochet border, Julia loves this blanket! )  in the pushchair, to keep her hands warm, but after a while, the blanket would come off too! Here are some photos of our perfect day out at Beamish..

We had a lovely Christmas day, as I hope you did too! I knitted myself and Julia matching Christmas jumpers which we both wore together on Christmas day, here is mine ( I did wear mine but have not got a photo :) )

and here is Julia wearing hers at Johns mam and dads when we went for Christmas dinner

Julia enjoyed Christmas morning so much, opening her presents, seeing Santa Claus has been and ate his supper Julia left out for him and his reindeer before she went to bed, Julia loved the gifts I made for her, a baby doll…

and a crocheted tea set, which she was particularly taken with!

I made the little bag for the tea set too :)

At the moment I am knitting Julia a Peppa Pig jumper which I am really enjoying doing and can not wait to see Julia wear this, she loves Peppa Pig!

Well, that’s that for now, I really hope you enjoyed my blog catch up, I will try my best to keep on top of my blog this year, promise :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog, all the best for 2016!

Take care, bye for now :) xxx

A few days ago, I finished crocheting this little cutie, which is in actual fact the very first toy I have crocheted for our little one :)

She is inspired by the wonderful mice of Brambly Hedge, and since there are no patterns available to crochet these lovely mice, I had to make one up myself, I’m quite pleased with how she has turned out, and our baba seems to like her too :)

Mrs Mop will live in our baby girls bedroom, until she is old enough to play with her, Mrs Mop will be kept forever, our baby’s first toy crocheted by her mammy :)

And speaking of toys, I am currently crocheting another toy, again of my own pattern as I can not find a pattern for this toy anywhere,

Do you know what this toy is going to be? Here is a clue, it is a very traditional, old fashioned toy :)

In-between crocheting, I have been enjoying spending time with our beautiful baby, how I love this girl so much!

She fills our lives with such joy!

Our gorgeous animals have been enjoying warm, cosy days, all snug at home,

As have I, with refreshing pots of tea,

Life is good :) x
