Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Unraveled Wednesday.

And at last I have a finish.

Blue and white cardigan for my granddaughter Toddler P. Yes she is now 15 months old and very much a toddler and not a baby.The lady in the button shop didn’t approve of penquin buttons, feeling I should have gone for blue buttons, but my eye had fallen on the penquins, and so it was. And of course an outfit had to be bought to go with it.

After three sons, three grandsons and another granddaughter now very much in charge of choosing her own clothes I am so making the most of shopping for little girls. There’s a matching t shirt and tights with it too.

So now it’s full steam ahead on making the topsy turvy Cinderella doll for Toddler P.

At a most unfortunate stage for this post. That’s two heads joined together. Feel it might look even spookier when the faces are embroidered on, but the dresses are all ready to go, so lots of little bits from now on. Pure fun for me.

As to reading

and it’s just lovely. The second of the books I succumbed too in the library with Autumn in the title. And I was doing so well not reserving more books, but then the BBC started to show a new series of Between the Covers and I had to add some to the TBR lists, and before I knew what I was about I had ordered five other books from the TBR list from the library.

My grandchildren get stuck to computer screens when they need time out. At my great age I finally recognise, accept and even embrace that I need to be stuck in a book for my time out.

  1. Awww! The sweater for your granddaughter is adorable. And I think the penguin buttons are perfectly cute for the sweater. How fun to be shopping and making for a granddaughter. I see lots of special clothing items in her future πŸ˜‰

  2. I think that lady should mind her own business, the penguin buttons are delightful. And I’ve reserved that book, the reviews look lovely, so thanks for the recommendation.

  3. I love the penguin buttons! You chose well!

  4. The penguin buttons are perfect as you knew they would be.

    • Thank you so much, the assistant did look at my choice slightly oddly, I’m glad I went with them though. I shall be gifting it next week, so I’ll know what the parents think.

  5. I like the penguin buttons, makes the cardi look like a little winter scene. ☺️ Couldn’t agree more about losing yourself in a book, it’s become such a restorative pass time for me that let’s me disconnect for an hour or so.

  6. I think the penguin buttons are perfect. What a darling outfit. I always wanted one of those topsy/turvy dolls.

  7. I love the penguin buttons too, it is nice having little girls to sew for πŸ™‚

  8. I love that cardigan, and LOVE THOSE BUTTONS!! Penguins are perfect – you were right to stick with your instincts πŸ™‚

  9. Time Out with a Book is the BEST idea!! That is such a darling sweater and yay for the penguin buttons – they seem perfect!

  10. So good you held your ground and bought the penguin buttons. They are just perfect and remind me of TV shows about Antarctica.
    I had a giggle at the Cinderella doll in the current state. Looking forward to seeing the next step with that one.

  11. Better to have your nose stuck in a book, today’s kids miss so much by having their heads in their phones or pc screens. The cardigan is lovely and the penguin buttons were a great choice πŸ™‚

  12. I love those penguin buttons! Too adorable! And I love the idea of a bookish time out! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you. I need time in which I just loose myself in a book, and it really is no difference between a book and screen time, just a different generation.

  13. lovely cardie and I think the penguin buttons were the perfect choice!
