Over the past six months I’ve had a
little not so little project on my crochet hook. As we crossed over the border several times for job interviews and to investigate the possibility of becoming South Australians, as we looked after our friends farm in South Gippsland, as we moved house interstate, as we unpacked our life after 15 months living on the road, as we settled in to life here on the Limestone Coast in our old farmhouse – all that time I hooked my way through a special project. A ripply blanket of blue and green yarn slowly grew on my lap, for a baby boy due in Melbourne’s winter.
That baby boy was welcomed into the world earlier this week. Cedar has arrived and I couldn’t be happier for my dear friend Lou and her beautiful family. I can’t even fathom the joy and love going on right now in their lives. Isn’t life full of amazement? It’s incredible.
I hope your blanket keeps you snugly and warm in your Melbourne home, Cedar. Know that it was made with the warmest of love, with hopes and dreams for you and your family woven through it. Welcome to the world baby boy, I can’t wait for your story to unfold!
