A New Hat and stuff

Maisie and I have just been for a walk into the village and this is what she looked like. I made her the hat a few weeks ago and she loves to wear it which pleases me, as you can imagine. Maisie has always looked good in a hat, right since she was tiny and I used to put one of those oh so cute little bands with a bow on round her gorgeous little head. Even though Maisie is only 11 years old she is growing up at the rate of knits oops I mean knots (that really was a typo!) and it's hard to keep up with her need for clothes that fit. We found the little skirt and a couple of T-shirts on our shopping jaunt yesterday, she keeps saying 'I really love this skirt Mum'...she looks so pretty today and I think she felt good too because she won't let me take too many photos of her these days.
Please excuse the messy garden, I really do love to have a pretty garden but this isn't ours and I didn't realise we would be here so long, so I have never had the love feeling to make this one special. I do have loads of pots on the patio though but they need some attention. A trip to the garden centre might be a good idea as soon as the spring flowers start to pop!
PS...I have just taken delivery of Elizabeth Zimmerman's 'The Opinionated Knitter' from The order cost me $38.95 (do I put the $ before or after the number?) and took just 11 days to arrive from the States. I tried to get this book from but it was selling for £41 which is more or less double what I paid in dollars from US. I know it would have arrived the next day if I had bought it from the UK but the savings were well worth the wait :^) I got that surprise jacket pattern at last!!

I love our Maisie xxx I promise to take her shopping as soon as we can afford it :)

I've got EZ's Knitters Almanac which has the little lace baby cardi in it, it's also a great read and has got some lovely things to make.

You had a lovely colour swap package, Mine will be finished after we've been to the yarn shop in Bideford on monday xxx

She's beautiful! You should be a proud mom :) My mom would always put hats on me as well - and I still love to wear them! :)

By the way, love the answer to your profile question - pink stilettos! :) I'd wear those too!

Have a great weekend!

Maisie looks really pretty and VERY grown up!! I have an 11 year old girl too who is very into her clothes.

I remember those little baby headbands well!!

Beautiful Maisie, I am so glad you like the hat your mum lovingly made for you, it's quite lovely on you.

Marianne, she is indeed 'growing up'! I know you're so very proud of her.

I'm so glad your new EZ book arrived, I'll be wanting to hear all about it.
I really should get an amazon order in, lots on the wish list but maybe just a couple of the more inexpensive books....since I've not been 'buying' yarn, don't you think?
Happy weekend to you and yours!

What a beauty Maisie is! She will be turning heads for sure. And she has such an impish, yet sweet look on her face - a girl with character. And I love her outfit!!!
