The first Christmas present is done!
I finally seamed the Cashmerino Baby Shrug and added a double crochet flower embellishment to use up the last few remaining yards of yarn.
That yarn is so smooshy and lovely that I didn't want to waste an inch of it.
Here is the intended recipient (my sweet little niece), when she came to visit with her family almost 2 weeks ago (wow, where did that go?!).
As you can see, she's in the stage where she is fascinated with labels - I remember mine being like that.
We had a great time all together; it was lovely to have my family here as it was the first time they've visited since we moved here 20 months ago.
We had fantastic weather too - good enough for ice-creams and sandcastle-building on the beach! A little weird for October but much welcomed after this summer's rain.
