I ordered some super softies for our nephew and his brother from Rhelynn. She is the most talented toy maker I have ever come across. These aliens are for Daniel. This zebra is for new boy Alex. I couldn’t resist this bunny with the embroidered ears for my friend’s little girl in Norway. This little [...]
I’ll bet you never thought I’d get round to Boston! It seems like a very long time ago now! When pao and I were on our honeymoon in 2001, one of the things we both said was that if we were ever to go the US again, we were definitely going back to Boston again. [...]

I am the luckiest person because not only did I make it into one of my favourite swaps of the year, I made it into two! I really got the best swap partners. Robin is my Knitter’s Tea Swap Pal 4 and we’ve been exchanging emails already about our preferences for tea and fun stuff. [...]
