Last weekend I met many lovely, kind, generous and talented women. One of them was Deb.
The idea of meeting someone in person after sharing in their life via blogging is an unusual experience, but Deb was exactly how I imagined her. Sweet, caring and so funny!
Prior to the weekend we arranged a little swap between us. My end was to make this very special coat to keep her daughter deliciously warm and snugly during the cold Christchurch winter. Annie is a little ray of sunshine, so I wanted to make her something happy and cosy.
Raspberry wool was adorned with bumble bees, ladybirds, dandelions (of course!), daisies and some other little botanical curiosities. With an added pixie hood, I think her little coat fits my idea of happy.
A wee "Care Bear" came together from the left-over pieces of raspberry wool. She is the perfect size for little hands to carry around and small enough for Annie to slip into a pocket and take with her...
I so enjoyed creating this coat just for Annie, and I hope she loves it as much as I do :)
