Good Morning Ladies,
Lots of lovely craft goodness to share with you today....
First up is the 'Family Portrait ' that Sophie drew for Paul's birthday, our children along with Paul are Walking Dead (tv show) fanatics. So Sophie came up with the idea of drawing all of us a Walking Dead Characters, as always she had done an incredible job, the portraits are so life like, from left to right it's: Becca, Sophie, Lucy, Paul, Me and Matt, all so easily recognisable even in character. Paul still hasnt got clear enough Vision to fully appreciate it, but is seeing more all the time. We are so incredibly proud of Sophie's talent.
Next up we have:

I finished crocheting this a couple of weeks ago but needed Alan to be out of the way so that I could “block” them on the carpet without risking him stepping on them
Alan found this machine knitting yarn when having a clear out
So a scarf that I’ll wear with point at front
