Both of us have been busy!!

Two items to show tonight -  one the product of the HDHBEM's knitting prowess.

Isn't this little pink baby cardigan cute?   Tomorrow it will begin its journey to Amy's house, hopefully to arrive before she leaves to visit her new grand-daughter.  
And I have finally take photographs of the Bits and Bobs sewing pocket.   One of the front with the cute beaded berry toggles.

And a side on shot to show the pocket between the folds.

This was a very interesting "pocket" to stitch and I enjoyed learning a new type of construction. 
As an aside, isn't the tartan tin gorgeous?   One of my Japanese friends sent it to me - full of their famed 'Mary's Chocolates'.   Currently it is still two thirds full - I am enjoying the tin almost as much as the actual contents!
Have a good evening everyone.


  1. Lovely work from both you and your mum.

  2. A gorgeous pocket Margaret, love the bird. Your tin is the best!! amazing you still have 2/3 left lol.
    The cardi is so cute!

  3. Some lucky little girl will enjoy the sweater. I agree, sometimes the container is as nice as the insides! The pocket is pretty...have not seen that pattern before.

  4. Dearest Margaret,
    What a wonderful sweater! I found out yesterday that her name is Claire. We will treasure the sweater. We plan to go see her in early February.
    Thank you so much.

  5. Sweet baby cardigan! And your stitched pocked is so beautiful (love those beaded ends!)


  6. Note to Margaret: Just sent my address off to you. Hopefully it will not take long to arrive.
