Back from England

I've just got back from a visit to see family in England. I saw my wee little niece for the first time (born on 30th Nov). She is a darling little girl with the cutest button nose and sweet blonde hair. I made her a baby safe teddy which was almost the same size as her! I also made some little baby shoes with fleece lining to keep her tootsies warm!

I got back late Monday night, travelling on the Eurostar, quite amazing that within 2hours on a train you can be from Brussels to London. It is funny how confused a brain can get, after speaking lots of Dutch here I found it hard at first to find the English words!! Then when I got back here, after a week in England, I had my Dutch evening class and I just couldn't find the right words and kept thinking in English instead!! I'll add some more photos of my trip soon. In the meantime here is a photo of the bear and shoes I designed and hand made. Catherine xx

Those little shoes are just adorable! Well done for making them yourself! Teddy is a cutie pie too, I'm sure he will be treasured.
