Thank Heaven for Little Girls....

On Sunday, I was utterly charmed by the sight of five little girls skipping into the Collingwood Children's Farm for a birthday party. So much sweet, open exuberance, with real warmth and affection for each other..... just gorgeous.While the wee girl and her friends went on tractor rides, fed farm animals and ate party food, I knitted furiously (yes, even in the sheep paddock). I was determined to finish off the fourth of the little Ruby Slippers, before our next stop.....


Adorable twin girls now have a pair of Ruby Slippers each (to remind them that there's no place like home) and some new little dresses and bloomers.


Sugar and spice and all things nice.... and lots of fun things to make for them. (Bless their little bamboo-merino socks).

Fabulous.

how are you at sewing in sleeves.... the baby is only a month old... it won't grow that fast, right?
