The one who’s hands I’m holding is flying the nest on Monday. Literally. With a plane.

She’ll spend the next 6 months in the UK.

 We call her Kiki, but her name is Christi and she’s my eldest.

I’m extremely sentimental and wanted her to take something with her for “warmth”. Real warmth and her mother’s love.

I love best in very practical ways.

I believe my “collage of crafts” (crocheted grannie squares, knitting and embroidery) will make my love for her tangible.

We’ll spend this weekend celebrating, reflecting and loving.

PS Inspiration for my colour scheme is from Haafner, yarn used is Protea from I Love Yarn. I used a 3,75mm crochet hook and 3mm knitting needles. My dear friend Elsbeth cheered me on as I tried my hand at my first “woolly tattoo”, inspired by the über talented Dotty Angel.
