Taking a Spring Holiday

Dear Arthur's Christmas Jumper 2016

Dear Arthur likes his new tank top, it was meant to be for Christmas but took a while longer. The pattern was adapted from this cute jumper 

Happy Things January 2017


I have meant to read this for years...I remember it being read to me age nine at school and sitting on a scratchy carpet waiting for the bell to be rung for home time. I have borrowed my husbands childhood copy which makes it all the more special.

Thanks to Little Cotton Rabbits, I am busy knitting Easter eggs...a special Easter egg hunt planned for darling Arthur.
