Aaaaannnnd ... she's back!

 

I've had a tough month. We went home to Ireland again and once again came back with a bronchial infection (baby) and the 'flu (me). It has taken us a good month to get over it. Today Baby Gingerbread and I went out for a walk and had a look at the botanical garden:





Then we dropped by to our favourite bakery for some goodies:




Then we went home to share our loot with Papa.



And despite everything - maybe because of everything - I've been crocheting. Quite frankly, it's what has kept me sane.



Nearly finished! Then I just need to write up the pattern, have it tested, review and adjust it --- and publish it! Easy-peasy!

Oh, that's a beauty! Pattern? Uhm, yes, PLEASE! Love your photos! Those tulips are yummy! So is that sweet baby's head! Give it a little kiss for me...my baby IRS all grown up and at age 24, thinks I've lost my mind if I try to kiss her head! Lol. Hugs, Annette
