The March Made It – Nana Cathy’s Crochet Cottage Garden Blanket

I’m sure you’ll remember the amazing CAL Blocks hosted by The LittleRoom of Rachel last year (we’ve already seen Rainbow Junkie’s beautiful blanket in an earlier challenge). Well, here is another INCREDIBLY STUNNING completion..

Ta-Dah!

A huge well done to Nanny Cathy, here is her Cottage Garden blanket in all it’s splendid glory!

The addition of the tiny crochet flowers and the combination of summer colours make it such a huge success – this is one amazing family heirloom for sure!

The Christmas Made It – Exciting new entries

Happy Monday everyone!

Here is SA it’s a public holiday today, and a day after the burial of our beloved Tata, may he finally rest in peace. I’m grabbing a few moments of peace in my home while Dan and the kids take care of (finally) putting up the Christmas tree.

(*** EDIT…ahem, as you can see it’s now Wednesday …. BUT  at least the tree is up wahoooooo ***)

My African Tree! Would love to say I made it but I did not….nevertheless, this one is perfect for us and only took a few moments to decorate! I love it (and that cute little boy next to it ♥)

So while they are hard at work, here a few more Christmas Made It entries

Mopsy by NanaCathyDotCom

Welcome back to Nana Cathy! Meet Mopsy, the latest, cutest, most adorable  little creature to come out of Nana Cathy‘s hands – isn’t she sweet. Those floppy ears are no doubt going to be used as handles by a sleepy Miss F when she drags her Mopsy off to  beddy byes! All little granddaughters need a BBF like this one.

Christmas Mug Rug by Measured & Slow

I’m loving all the stunning fabrics that I’ve been seeing lately and this stunning Christmas Mug Rug (love that!) by Alyssa of Measure & Slow is the cherry on top. So beautifully & intricately sewn with little stars, it make the perfect gift and swap item in this case. I love that Alyssa’s posts are always full of good advice and tips – she makes it look so easy for us sewing-challenged ones!!!

The lovely Pigtails is back to woo us with more of her creative genius!

“Mielie” Scarf by Pigtails

Again, please have a squizz at the full post so you can read all about the inspiration behind this amazing scarf! “Mielie” is a South African term for corn-on-the-cob and also the name of a FAB local label who make the most incredible handbags (these are sooooo on my wishlist!). This scarf is a perfect match, so simple but incredibly effective!
