Doll TA-DAH!

Well today started off the complete and utter correct way.

Just look at my breakfast!

Oh how can you not lick your lips when seeing that. I wish I could have it every morning. Tropical Goodness! Passion fruit and Grapefruit!

I then went to coffee with my mum and sister and my mother and sister in law. After the wedding we all got on so well so its nice to meet up every couple of months and catch up!

This week I have finished two projects. A doll and a mouse. Both knitted.

I am going to post about the mouse separately as I would like to share the pattern with you as it is cute and quick to make.

But here is my doll.

At my knitting classes we have all been tasked to make one for "Every Child Deserves a Doll". So she, along with about ten others, will be going over to Africa to be loved and cared for by a child.

If you would like to do one then let me know and I'll point you in the right direction!

I also saw my granny today which reminded me I must share with you the card I gave her for her birthday. She loves pin wheels so I had to get it her! It had a lovely reading on the back.

Oh it makes me long for the beach!

So finally as promised, I have two weeks of Reason's To Be Cheerful. I am really enjoying seeing all of yours and if you want to join in then is super easy. Just read this post.
