My niece recently turned three and I wanted to give her something handmade. My own little three year old loves making cups of tea for me in her play kitchen and so I thought that some little felt tea 'accessories' might be well received.
My own two little people really liked the tea bags and even though we don't have much in the way of play food I am now committed to making another set of tea bags.

Autumn fading, winter comes
Frosty mornings, tingling thumbs,
Cold red noses, cold red cheeks,
Warm woolly socks for icy cold feet,
Gloves and coats and hats for all!
Now King Winter, you may call.
author unknown to me.
A recent finished project - wrist warmers / fingerless gloves to keep the little ones warm on frosty mornings.
I am working on a pair for me and have set myself a goal of having them ready for when school resumes next week.

I finished the rainbow tunic that I was working on for H a fortnight or so ago - not much chance to sit and upload the photos hence the delay. This is the tunic that was to be an Easter gift then a birthday gift (mid April) and was finally a 'here you go I finished it' gift!
These photos were taken on the morning of the first day that H could wear her tunic. She loved matching baby L. The skirt is a lot fuller that the one that I made last winter but I think it works well and as H discovered when we arrived at our playgroup that day the fullness means that she can pull it up to make some pretty neat wings - heheh.
The pattern is "Bloom" by Georgie Hallam but I worked the skirt without the lace work making it the perfect no thinking knit for me.
