Teddy bears picnic

Here is Bea's invitation to her birthday teddy bears picnic. We wanted a nice vintage feel but didn't have much time so we did pinch all the illustrations from old Enid Blyton books I must admit.

I think Bea will be taking Dog rather than a teddy. Dog is from Ikea and is Bea's best friend so I'm sure he will be joining us for the birthday celebrations next weekend!

The birthday dress

Is coming along slowly! I had a disaster while untangling a knot in the yarn and quite a lot of stitches fell off the needle. As I was in the middle of knitting the little heart pattern I was unable to recover and had to start again. At least I have knitted faster the second time now I am so familiar with the pattern!

Three years of a degree and seven years freelancing...

Were all working towards this one masterpiece.

Bea absolutely LOVES the cbeebies birthday song so I felt it was my motherly duty to create her a card to send in for the birthday bear slot. In The Night Garden isn't her very favourite (her first words were Peppa Pig) but we call her Makka Pakka because she's so chubby so it seemed fitting.

I just hope it gets shown now after all my hard work!
