Birthday Hat

A friend's little girl just had her first birthday.  They live all the way down in Arrowtown/Queenstown so along with a box of warm hand me downs, we sent this hat as a birthday gift. 
 I thought the 2 variegated yarns paired up nicely and gave a bit of a vintage feel, especially once I added the shell-like button. 
And this is an action shot of my daughter trying the hat on for size.  She's quite a bit bigger than the birthday girl so everything should be right-on sizing wise. 

Mother's Day

No, I didn't craft for myself for Mother's Day.  I helped my husband's daughter make some chocolates for her mum.  They were milk chocolate hearts filled with brandy soaked cherries. 

We then simply lined a purple Chinese takeaway style gift box with a napkin and placed them in.  Not sure how they tasted as we only made 12 and they all went in the box.  A very quick and easy project for sure!
