Posting a day early to celebrate the end of winter, and ready to start the And Sew We Craft crafty photo a day tomorrow, which I’ll be blogging weekly on a Sunday.
So, that cowl, hey? The one I’ve been working on for ages. That I frogged at least twice. That I was mega excited about? It doesn’t fit. Wonderful. It does, however, look fabulous on my 2 year old.
