Dear Lucy WOW!!! What a lovely note from little lady.
My own mum sewed a lot on her singer machine which was kept in a wooden casing and tucked in at the side of the fireplace next to the radio.
When I grew up I bought my first second hand machine. My eldest son
had me making a sleeping bag for Action Man!!!
I had a Clothkits catalogue before Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed looking through it.
I am making a crochet blanket for my great neice and I think that I will make one for her doll as well.
A really lovely post!!! xxx.


I had forgotton about clothkits but this brought back memories from the 70's.... I loved Little Ladies message to you too.... so cute!


How touching to find a note like that, nearly made me cry! What a wonderful mum you must be! xx


i have parents like that too !


Thats so precious! Im definitely going to make my daughter one for her birthday!


Oh Lucy, how wonderful. You both obviously treasure these moments spent together and will always remember them. Kiki is absolutely gorgeous and the little blanket, well....just beautiful. It's so lovely to know there are mums out there introducing their little ones to the joy of creating and making things.
Lucy, you continue to inspire me, thank you for sharing.

P.S. Little B must be having his first birthday soon?


:) That is the best note a mum could get! My daughter has been really interested in my sewing adventures, so maybe it's time we sew a doll together! Thanks for the information about the kits.


i just love this post! how neat to have that memory and obviously it has also meant soooo much to LL! love kiki too!


That letter is so preciuos! The dream come true...I don't have a daughter, so unlikely to get a letter like that, although my son doeas appreciate my sewing skills for dress-up.


Wonderful! Please tell Little Lady how much I love her color choices and the pattern she planned with them!

I do love miniaturization in all its forms! That blanket is perfection. :)


Absolutely precious memories! Happy New Year!


Beautiful!!! Best wishes to all at 24 xx

Kiki is adorable and I love the note from your daughter. That is simply precious.


Aww, this is too sweet, Luce! I envy you, I'd be galloping off making a whole wardrobe of doll's clothes if only I had a little girl to make them for! Gorgeous blankie, lucky girl.

A very sweet post. I crocheted and sewed nine patch quilts with my daughter when she was five. They are wonderful memories now.


Your blog has touched my heart yet again. Such a bit of goodness.


Oh how sweet. That letter - awwww. I was bought a similar thing - cloth doll cut out thingy on fabric - sad story is that I am no longer friends with the girl that gave me it - super loooong story - and now I can't bring myself to make it! Love yours though. I'll have to look at the linkies. x

What a great note from your little lady! I feel all choked! Your blog brightens my day, thank you for sharing your creations!


Precious! I am working on a doll blanket for my daughters American Girl doll she got for Christmas and am using your Granny Stripe Pattern! I hope my daughters take on my love for crafting as they grow up.


Awwwww bless! That is the sweetest thing ever. I used to love doing all the creative stuff with my littlie years ago. There are soooo many parents who are too precious about their houses and their kids clothes etc that they never allow them to be creative so it especially lovely when you hear otherwise (not that I expected anything else from yourself!) and to know that what you do is appreciated and will stay with them forever. Awww I feel all glowy now!

Love and stuff xx


Big smiley faces in your home, filled with love and happiness, nothing more perfect than a daughter wanting to be just like her mum, you're the best Lucy!
