Yarn Along - Craft On

Linking up with Ginny at Small Things and Frontier Dreams today

Nola's little vest is finished.

 I used  the owl cable panel for my littlest owl lover.

Crocheted the borders and embroidered some little stars on the garter stitch bodice on a whim. 

Here is my sweet girl with the very beautiful platinum winter sun shining brightly in our V E R Y muddy garden today. 

 I think I'm going to have to hose down everyone's boots! 

Even the snowman the girls made is muddy? 

Rather photogenic unfortunately.

The piles of sycamore leaves that seemed so heavenly - crisp,  throw-able, crunch-able and even fallrightinto but months before are now making some lovely mulch on the lawn. 

Nola of course, is delighted by all these details especially the mud, always the mud! 

Toddlers make you see life as it really is don't they? 

Full of wonder and texture and colour and curiosity...

  2. Beautiful! All of it. I love the changes you made to the Milo vest. If it weren't for the cable on the front I don't think I'd have known that was the pattern you started with! xo

  12. Suzy, it is a while since I visited here and little Nola has grown up a lot in that time. Her vest is gorgeous and all your other creations are too.
