Little Jumpers and Tilda!!

Hello again everyone...... hope you are all well and apologies for my absence for such a long while........ just been so busy, busy busy!! .........but then we all are...... its the time of year and so much going on at home at the moment.... running around like a headless chicken!!!  There is still so much to do and only 2 weeks left to Christmas !! eeeek!!  Just about managed to finish all my Christmas cards and I will try and post them sometime this week...... and these little jumpers.... well, I am addicted to knitting them.... they knit up really quick and they are so cute, especially with their little matching beanie hats!!   If you saw my earlier post (from ages ago!) you will know I am knitting these little jumpers for HIV babies in Africa and I have been overhwelmed by the response I have had with regards to people requesting the pattern and wishing to knit for this very worthy cause ... and it uses up all those oddments of wool you may have lying around!  I have the pattern for anyone who would like a copy, just let me know and I will email it to you.

This is one of the cards I did manage to make this week.... I fell in love with this little lady as soon as I saw her, she is so sweet. She is coloured with Promarkers with lots of Star Dust glitter. The papers are also Magnolia,  "Sweet Christmas Dreams - Holly Christmas Song" - honestly I was soooo reluctant to cut into this beautiful paper!

The gorgeous glittery ribbon and the lovely twinkly button are from The Ribbon Girl 
Sentiment is Lili of the Valley
Snowflake is Marianne

I will try not to leave it so long before my next post ....I have a couple of projects I have been working on to show you so watch this space!!

Thanks for looking and bye for now!
