A Little Ray of Sunshine ๐Ÿ”†

We’re in loveโคโค The secret is out ๐Ÿ˜บLast week, our second grandchild was born, named after my Mum and born on the day that my Dad would have been 100.ย  A very happy and nostalgic occasion .. she is beautiful ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜

The project I was working on for months was a blanket for the family heirloom cot.ย  The cot was made by Gordon’s Dad for our eldest son who was born in 1970, and was subsequently used for our daughter and then younger son before being hung from the rafters in Gordon’s workshop until our grandson was born in 2008 ๐Ÿ˜.ย  It was then hung back up in the workshop again until it was needed for this new addition to our family.

This is the secret … a blanket that I made with 100% cotton.ย  Because the pattern is quite dense, the blanket is very warm and was quite a challenge to make during the hot summer months.ย  The fine cotton meant it took quite some time to complete but the final result was worth it.ย  Unfortunately I was so eager to hand it over that I completely neglected to take my usual photos but here’s what it looks like ….

The cold, wet weather also made its presence felt last week, so I sat down with the remainder of the cotton yarn and made this little beanie for our new arrival …

  1. Many Congratulations. Your family has grown by two feet!
    The blanket is a work of heart … but the little beanie speaks volumes! It tells of the love you have for your new Granddaughter, the history she has become a part of, the future you hope for her, and the all encompassing love in your family.
    A truly blessed baby.

    Again … congratulations.
    Fabulous post.
    Have a blessed rest of your day. ~ Cobs. x
