A hat for me from one of my sister-in-laws; she's been busy while enjoying a winter beach holiday (can't wait to see what else she's made). The pattern is from Jo Sharp...I love it!
A book and hanky from one of my sisters, who has been living in FAR north east Australia.

Half and hour after she was put to bed, she yelled out "watcha doing Mama"
Mama: "cleaning up"
Elsa: "oh Mama, I need a big hug - two hands"
Mama: "Dada's on his way"
Elsa: "no Mama, I want Mama"
So I made my way into her room and held her tight with two hands, just as she requested and she said "Mama hands not full now?". That one pulled at my heart strings! I told her that my hands were very full - full of my favourite thing in the world!!! She gigglged and I lavished her with kisses.
I felt a little emotional and nervous about her first haircut but it was great (and her curls are still very much intact!). All my life Mum has told the tale of the time she took my very curly haired older sister for her first haircut and the hairdresser completely ruined her curls / took them all away for some time...I had that tale in mind, particularly given that Elsa has hair just like her aunt's. We took a little bag of her hair clipping away with us; something I know I'll always treasure.
That's my hair, not hers! I also had most of mine chopped off; it's a much-needed and welcome change. I really did have a lot of hair!
