My Newest Additions
I just love them all so much!!! They all have names (of coarse) and each and every one has personality to boot. We have Lucky (she's the one with the twins that I couldn't get a clear photo of), Browny (she's just about to have a baby and is to the left of the pic above), Beau (he's the little tan coloured ram in the middle of the pic) and last but not least Beauty (my little black and white baby girl to the right).... The most spoilt of them all would have to be Beau, he just loves to give me kisses, it's so sweet!!! I never thought sheep could be so friendly. My other 4 sheep are friendly but nothing like this tribe.
As for my little princess, she is in animal heaven!!! She's absolutely loves having all of these animals around her. Every time that we drive up the driveway she practically jumps out of her car seat trying to get her face up to the window to see them all. Then, whilst undoing her straps to let her out of the car she can't fight her excitement and has to let out several little squeals just to let them know that she's home. Mind you, the animals are equally excited to see her too, jumping around. Priceless!!!
This morning I managed to knit up one of these Saartje's Bootees before my little princess started her day. I originally got the link from my sister over at Bliss...by luv abby and she in turn got it from Crafted By Kylie. I've changed the pattern just a little bit and have decided to do the straps in a completely different way. Here's what I've done so far... I'll still use buttons to fasten the straps down but have decided to embellish the straps with some crocheting.
On another note... The team over at madeit.com left me a comment on this post so I decided to go check them out. Let me fill you in on a little secret.... They have a blog and a web site and guess what... their both GREAT!!! It's set up for Aussie's to buy and/or sell handmade/homemade products. There isn't a lot for sale on there as of yet but hopefully after a little bit more exposure the product lists will grow. I'm really considering listing a couple of items with them to see how I go. It has a really fresh feel about it, not at all like etsy or eBay, I'm really loving it!!! p.s I have a link to their site in the column to the right.
