Not that life hasn't been busy - its just where to start?
I may as well begin with a couple of projects finished over the weekend which stalled in the midst of winter - missing in action under piles of newer ideas and found when I went hunting for one of my visual diaries (which is still missing - Miss Lala is the chief suspect).

|Lucky for me, the dress is on the roomy side (its wool flannel) and will be great for next year.|
The gingham elephant (Ellie-Bellie) was picked up at a Waihi op-shop last year with just one ear, only partially attached. I have a feeling my compassionate daughter will be bringing home all manner of creatures in varying states of demise as she grows up - she made it very clear she was not leaving the store without Ellie-Bellie....so new ears for her and tassels and a bit of blocking for G-ma's scarf.
I love that Mum makes us stuff but she has a habit of running out of patience for the item before its finished and sending it to me to finish up. Love the yarn though eh?
