I hope you all had a lovely Christmas I know I did. One of the joys of Christmas is having my grandsons visit and this year my brother's grand children also came for a brief time. The picture above gives you some idea of the difference in age and size of three of the children but the two big boys looked after the little girl so well that I am thinking of making this the picture on my Christmas cards for next year. The most lasting and moving image I shall carry with me is of Ben aged 5 putting on Ellie's (aged 2) shoes with absolute concentration and gentleness.
Apart from my amazing family time, I did do some crocheting, mostly preparing for the spring and valentines day.
I have also made other colours but I like this one best.
Then there is this. I freely admit that I am a dog person but I have had cats in my time and so every now and then I try to make one but somehow I always miss out on the essential catness of the creature.
