The Christmas Made It – Our first entries and a mighty man

(***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 ♥

Non-Christmassy Christmas Dress by Mrs Macs Crochet

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!!!

Welcome back Trish from Made By Patch (yes, there’s pink snow everywhere, even in Cape Town heehee),  it’s so lovely to have you back, especially that you’ve brought your delightful cup cozy with you….I LOVVVVVVE the little red buttons as flower, – so lovely and very effective.

Baby Ziggy Zaggy Blanket by Beatrice Ryan Designs

Ooooooh, Pewter & Berries! I don’t think I’ve heard a more perfect description before, it’s exactly what the top ripply blanket looks like – so very striking too. Both of these gorgeous blankets were quickly made up by the ever-so-talented Elena from Beatrice Ryan Design. Once again, her colour combinations are impeccable and work so well together (and make me feel so utterly useless!!) Elena, you are amazing

And speaking of colour combos….
