I just can't leave them alone! I've put everything else to one side and I'm on a baby vintage bonnet making bing!!!!!
Although this is not my own pattern but comes from Tamara Kelly on Moogly . I have called this bonnet Puff Candy because,which isn't the popcorn stitch incidentally, the puff colours remind me of candy or marshmallows.
I have also tweaked it adding 2 sc rows as edging and crocheted cords with a triple puff at each end. I was thinking that I could add a little bell inside each triple puff so it would tinkle everytime baby moves her head around. However I've been blessed or cursed with a vivid imagination and I began to think about those bells and began to imagine the possibility of baby sucking and biting through the triple puffs and swallowing the little bells. You know I would never be able to forgive myself if something happened to a baby because I was not cautious enough when making a garment for a child. Therefore I decided to foresake the pretty bells all together.
I used Red Heart Baby Soft in pink and Coats SMC Micro Grande Soft in white and Coats Bravo Grey and Fuchsia yarn and a Nº 5 crochet hook.
This is another stash buster make and I'll be joining the April Stash busting party again on Linda's blog ,Crafty Corner.
At the same time I'd like to give a shout out about Linda's guess the colour giveaway. Well worth a visit!!!
You may remember that I made a Bear Beanie in February for my Great Niece who lives in Devon,which I posted about here. Her mother has just sent me some snapshots where she is wearing the Bear Beanie and has given me permission to display a photo of G here on my blog modelling my Beanie....which she is delighted with, so her mother says.
Isn't she a cute model!!!!
Usual Sunday outing this morning! It is a fabulous day today...... 25 degrees!
We went for a walk along the beach promenade but ....I'm not walking along the promenade envious of the people on the beach anymore ....I'm for the beach and for a swim next week!

It is Holy Week as from next Wednesday and I hope to be able to finish work and get up to Santa Cruz in the old quarter and see the procession. I also hope I get there on time to hear the Saeta ( a very old type of religious song sung only at Holy Week when the Cristo goes pass. Absolutely nothing like a hymn!!!) . I have been lucky enough to hear the Saeta once, some years back and it brought tears to my eyes. Impressive!
I mentioned on a previous post Sr P is not at all religious in fact quite the opposite but every year he tries to get up to see the Santa Cruz procession. It is part of their culture and tradition, part of the Alicantinos themselves.
Roll on Easter and a few days to relax!!!
