Looking out my window this morning, I could really believe that Spring is finally here! The sun is shining, the sky is blue and I can almost convince myself that there are buds on the trees. So, I reckon it’s the perfect day to introduce you to the first Beastie of the new season!
Please give a warm BeastieBlog welcome to this super-special Christening Beastie!
Christening Beastie is one of my Big Beasties. They’re always fun to make – bigger Beasties means more knitting time for me, hooray!
Then to make this sweet little girl monster even more special, I gave her some lovely soft hair…
… A pretty silver and pink dress…
…And sparkly silver stripey legs!
Christening Beastie was joining her new family just in time to celebrate her soon-to-be-BeastieBuddy Mila Kate’s christening – what a coincidence, eh? So to make sure she looked the part, I added some reminders of the day for Mila to enjoy when she’s a bit older.
First of all, a pair of cute felt angel wings and hearts embroidered with her christening date…
…And then a heart-shaped pillow embroidered with her name!
The ribbon loops mean that this Beastie can put the pillow down if she gets tired of holding it… and then she’ll be better able to play with Mila too!
Thank so much to Louise for requesting this special Beastie, and to Izzy for helping with the colour choices and design!
And while we’re on the subject of new beginnings, a few of you may have noticed that I’ve been monkeying around with the BeastieBlog over the last few days, and it now looks quite different when you view it online! However, I realise that a lot of people (myself included) do the bulk of their blog reading through the WordPress app, so these earth-shattering changes may well have passed you by. So if you have a second, please go and check it out… It’s still very much a work in progess, and I’d love to hear what you all think!
And that’s not all that’s been going on behind the scenes recently! I’ll have more monster news for you this time next week… And be sure to drop back in on Friday, when we’ll be visiting some Beastie friends of mine in Italy!
