Wooly Wonders Crochet Dress

My youngest daughter Rosie has just turned one last month. She is 90% walking but still prefers to crawl for speed when chasing her two older sisters.

Crocheted Puppy Toys

My eldest daughter is in 4yo kindergarten and had the privilege of taking home the class puppy ‘Biscuit’ last week.
