Well Jamie was not the only one to get a new sweater this week , the girls also received one, but who to wear it first?

Lots of discussion, s few tantrums and a few tears  before Mum took over and made the choice! along with a list of who gets to wear it next!

Why do they always look through the trellis? what are they hoping to see?

Well why they look we get to see the beautiful detail at the back !

Ah It’s Mable Lucy ! who is first to wear the new sweater by the talented Rosie Laird , I think mum chose her because she was not fighting over it but getting upset that everyone was arguing !

A close view of the tiny cable stitches.

Mable Lucy’s also wearing a pair of the new cords from Ginny of a Passion for Sasha with a pair of grey JJ shoes.

Now she’s talking to Boris one of the gargoyles whose protect the house and garden.

How sweet , she holds his finger her hands too small to hold his.

She looks off down the garden but Boris watches and waits.

He knew it! Mable Lucy always leans against him for a rest! have you ever heard a gargoyle chuckle?
me neither but you do feel the earth shaking slightly…so deep is the sound.

Boris watches Mable Lucy while Mable Lucy watches the garden.


Later Mable Lucy moves on down the garden stopping at the covered benches.

No sun today to cast a shadow but a strong breeze that could take the feet out from under a wobbly strung Sasha, so Mable Lucy makes her way back to the house to ask Dad when he’s going to sort out her strings!!

I must apologise to Rosie for not pulling the sleeves down into place! But when dealing with a wobbly strung Sasha , I tend to forget about those things while getting them to stand and not dive into the gravel or shrubbery ! I could have chosen another of my girls but thought Mable Lucy would look good with her short bobbed hair .
I was so happy to nab this gorgeously detailed and perfectly sized cable sweater made by Rosie definitely a winner and I am sure she’ll have a waiting list by now.
