Week Five

 First of all please say hello to our beautiful grand-daughter born to our eldest son Michael and lovely daughter-in-law Liz on 26th January




Her name is Abigail


She is wearing a little cardigan I knitted thirty-five years ago for her daddy.


The cardigan, is it classed as vintage yet........?


(last showing I promise)


The last of my pretty flowers  
The post about them is here


And re-potted the plants from here.  Think we have lost one plant on the left front of the basket, and the poinsettia isn't going to survive much longer, The was a rose as well but that is now in a pot in the garden.  You can read about this here

  1. Welcome to your new grand-daughter. She's beautiful & congrats to the parents too. Not sure how old the cardie needs to be for vintage. Have a good weekend & take care.

  16. She is beautiful and that knitted cardigan is very special too. So often present day Mum's don't appreciate hand made clothing for their babies. Enjoy being a Granny - I do even though they are 16 and 19!
