I am constantly amazed by all the wonderfully inspiring things that people make and share on their blogs.
When I saw the beautiful little hat that Lisa made for her friend's little girl, I thought it was the sweetest little hat I had ever seen! I honestly could not get it out of my head. I was compelled to contact Lisa and ask her if she could possibly knit two of these hats for my little girls. With winter fast approaching, I knew my girls would just love having cute little knitted strawberry hats to keep their heads warm.
I was delighted when Lisa replied and said yes! After a few emails about head measurements and paypal details, I don't know how she did it, but suddenly she was emailing me to tell me the hats were ready to be shipped! I honestly couldn't believe how quickly she knitted up these two beautiful hats for us. She is so talented and... thoughtful;
The hats arrived, beautifully packaged in these little handmade bags with the girls' names stamped on the tag by Lisa's children. How lovely is that? They also arrived just in time for Mothers Day. I was so happy to have this little surprise up my sleeve for my girls on Mother's Day (because, after all, I wouldn't be a mother without them ~ it was nice to have a gift for them too!). Of course, they weren't expecting anything for themselves, but were tickled pink when they opened up their little bags and saw what was inside;
Needless to say, they both LOVE their hats and have hardly taken them off, even wearing them to School Photo Day on Monday;
By sheer coincidence, that very same day, a friend gave us seven little strawberry plants for our tiny little veggie patch...
Of course, the girls had the perfect hats to wear while they were outside with Dad, planting the strawberries;
Thank you Lisa, for the gorgeous hats!
(Did you know that Sydney had it's coldest May morning in four years today and was just one degree off the record for the coldest May morning ever!)
