Yellow is for girls and boys.

Before I left Christchuch I had a few more things on my to-do list. Because packing is so much more enjoyable under pressure because you stayed up too late last night finishing baby gifts. It’s also why all my craft room had to be packed on the friday- you know, the day before we left, just in case there was a last minute project that needed making.

I found this incredible yellow wool at a Church Sale a few weeks back, and cut it into 4 peices to make baby blankets from, with recycled cotton on the other side.

The sunny yellow sheet from a few posts back,

and some unbelievably soft flannelette, that I found crisp and new, wrapped up with a pattern for a little boy’s shirt, with a wee bag of matching buttons in a well-worn brown paper bag, soft and furry from being opened and closed over the years.

Gifts for two friends at my old work, each expecting one of either kind in the New Year. I’ve got a few more of these cut out in the boxes of craft stash I brought up from Christchurch. Let’s just say I’ve got more stash than clothes- Michael and I combined!
