(***I actually posted this yesterday by scheduling it to publish a bit later in the day and I somehow manage to make the date 6 months ago! So juuuuust in case you missed it….***)
I don’t think that there are many people today that haven’t heard or been touched by the news that our beloved Madiba passed away last night. Wow, what a legend!
I must say, I don’t feel the sadness I thought I would. Instead I feel so happy that he is finally free of the life support he’s been on for the past 6 months, (and if you believe any of the other theories that have made their rounds, perhaps he actually did leave us all those months ago). Either way he is finally free and we are free to honour, love & respect him in the dignified way that is so deserving of this great soul. Instead of sadness, I feel humbled & proud of what everything he stood for, for uniting not only a nation but the entire world and for paving a way out of the darkness for us all.
Tata Madiba, may you rest in peace and may we carry on your legacy of unity and peace ♥
On that high note, here are the first three entries into the Christmas challenge! I’m loving how our little Made It family is growing…
A very warm welcome to Sandra from Sandra Hernández from Holland, we are thrilled to have you join in.Her knitted Bear Hat Scarf is sensational – so soft and warm looking and of course the ears just make it! I absolutely loved browsing Sandra’s blog – her love of animals, her creativity, talent and adventurous spirit are evident in every single post – go on, have a look and enjoy!
Two months in a row? – snowing rainbows indeed heehee!! So happy to have you the super clever and talented Trish from Made By Patch back in the challenge this month. WOW, out doing herself again too with these stunning bookmarks, so beautifully sewn. Each little house is so sweet with its own special character and I adore the little tags too. Perfect gifts for anyone, young or old!
Ahhh how gorgeous! This “girly, but not too frilly” crochet dress was made by Mrs Mac of Mrs Macs Crochet for a friends little 6 month old daughter. Well, she definitely for the brief right, it’s the perfect balance of sweetness and pretty girlyness. Oh, and the cute vintage little buttons (more pics on the post so click on the pic) were the ones Mrs Mac won from Tamara in the July Made It – how awesome!!!
