The other day I was up at my sister's shop taking photos of some her cakes that were off to the wedding expo...while uploading the photos it occurred to me I don't think I've ever shared here what my sister does.
She makes the most amazing cakes, and has a booming cake & coffee shop business.
You can see some of her work at Magnolia

But here is what I was taking pics of the other day - so pretty!

Oh the places you will go!

So what do you get someone whose been all over the world?
Why you get them a cake set with all the destinations they've been to stamped into the handles...so they can have their cake and eat it too :)

And here's just one last little crochet hat...this one is made with the most divine organic yarn!

Afghan in circles

So it's done, and it's lovely!
I used Lionbrand's Homespun yarn in pesto, cherry blossom and tudor (2 balls of each), and followed the pattern included on the label.

My baby girl approves :)
And so does my baby baby

You're the apple of my eye

 I started off making a lady bug hat but some how it turned into an apple...magic I tell you!
Then I used some gorgeous chunky blue wool to make this sweet little newborn hat

And a Pixie hat

All the hats I've been busy with have been made for a lovely photographer to use as props in her newborn shoots.  This week she was kind enough to send me some photos to show me how they're being used and her photos are absolutely gorgeous.  Isn't this little guy the sweetest thing ever?
If anyone would like to contact Kelly you can catch her at The Design Garage

Busy with the crochet hook

I seem to have times where I favour knitting and others where I favour crochets.

Right now I'm hooked (har har) on crochet again
