Cache Coeur

A friend became a Grandma!

Good reason for a home made present for baby. A little girl named Isabella Margaret.

I love the Baby wrap pattern first published in an Ashford Wheel magazine but also to be found on Ravelry now 

I have knitted it several times now and everytime receive great comments on how practical, warm and useful this little garment is.

For this one I used the wool I dyed in bright and joyful colours.

There are pictures of that here;

I named it "Frog on a lillypad"

I think it is perfect for a girl.

Little Constance is making a good model.

So many colours.......It's gorgeous!

Welcome little Isabella!

Dante's purse.

How cute is this?????


Lovely little project bag knitted with  some yarn spun years ago and sewn with scraps of cotton fabric and buttons to match.

I send it as part of an "Easter Swap" to someone in a Ravelry group with some lovely sockyarn I dyed and a chocolate bunny.

And in return I received a parcel of my own from another group member. I love Swaps!!
