Arrival of Ayla

This morning Luke, Mark and I went off to the post office... and look who we found in the post box:

I've arrived safely Mommy!
Ayla was so excited when we opend up her box.... she said she had been little nervous being in there all by herself... but was glad to be out.

The first thing Ayla did when she got to our house was generously give the children her gift for them.

Mark and Luke were facinated with all the different flavours... I had to take the jelly beans away before the three got ill... (Thank you Roxanne they were soooooooo THRILLED)

Then we all went outside to show Ayla our garden.... She was shocked that the sun was so hot... and the sky so blue... where she comes from it's fall.

The boys gave her a HUGE cuddle to welcome her.

Ayla says, "See you soon Mommy... I miss you!"

Travelling Monster

Meet Samantha...

She will be travelling all over the world for the next few months. In our Ravelry group Danger Crafts, we have decided as many of us can't visit each other we would send our emissaries instead.

So Samantha (named by KnittingADD) will be mine....

Samantha was born less than an hour ago... I knitted her with Vinnis Colours Nikkim.

Vinnis Colours is dyed and distributed by a wonderful South African lady called Vinnis....

Would you expect anything less from me??? As Samantha will be travelling and representing our country I though it fitting that she would be made from a SA product... I'm hoping that this will allow others to see what we have to offer)

I will upload pictures and events from each of the monsters that visit us... Luke and Mark are so excited!!

Until then...
