Hello weekend!

This week has been busy with finishing off this little hippo and starting something new.

This hippo is so lovely to crochet and Kerry Lord the designer of these gorgeous animals is really amazing! 

This little face!

My eldest daughter chose the little hippo and I added  the tutu and ballet shoes as my daughter is a ballerina!

 The little tutu and ballet shoes are a standard size and fit all the Edward's Menagerie animals. So cute!

It really feels like Spring is here in Cape Town. I am making something special for a friend and decided to try making roses. I used Attic24 pattern and I am really love these little roses! 

I went shopping for some new yarn and couldn't resist these gorgeous colours from Eco Cotton! 

Vanilla, Ruby and Bordeaux ...stunning reds!I added some of my MoYa yarn too.

Now I just need to sew them all into position and add some pretty beads. 

Happy weekend!! xx 


  1. Oh, Georgina is adorable, Shirley--you can do just about anything with those crochet hooks of yours :) The tutu is such a nice touch...

    Glad your weather is feeling like spring--we are still way too hot here. Wish fall would move in soon. Happy September to you!
