We had a wonderful shared first birthday party for our babies from our antenatal group yesterday. We had lots of yummy food and we all brought along a gift to be handed out. John’s gift was a fantastic amigurumi toy turtle and a cute book (actually I cheated and when I heard it was a gift from Sofia I chose it for John – so naughty). Sofia makes these amazing amigurumi toys and she has tried to teach me (well once only) and I can’t wait to learn and be able to make my own toys and hats, etc. This week we are going to get together so she can help me make some crochet flowers for a friend’s birthday pressie. Loving this handmade buzz I’m on. Nothing like home/ handmade gifts!.
