More beautiful handmade gifts!

The spoiling continues, I received some more beautiful handmade gifts this week!

Firstly the lovely Joy called me on Tuesday asking if she could call in as she had something she wanted to drop off - adorable hand-dyed, hand knitted pants. They are just gorgeous, and can be seen on their own on Joy's blog here, and modeled so cutely by Cheriese below:

Thank you so much Joy, these are just so gorgeous - Cheriese will be getting lots of wear out of them!

I also got given some too cute beanies from my friend Alison. I had knitted one using the same pattern, but chose the smallest size which sadly is almost too small for Cheriese, so Alison gave me two more in the next size up:

Another friend, Jodie, gave me the cutest knitted cardigan I've ever seen! She made the same one for her own daughter when she was a baby. She also made an adorable beanie - it is a bit too big for Cheriese at the moment, but I'm sure it won't be long before she'll be able to wear it.
Unfortunately Cheriese was too tired for any more photos, so will have to get some more modeled shots later.

I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. Handmade gifts made by beautiful people that enrich another person's life - it is very special.

Oh they are the cutest pants - and all of the lovely gifts are wonderful as well...

Will have to get that pattern off of you for the beanie - have heats of that wool just lying around!
