The new boy arrives

Goodness Hitty Patience, who/what do you think this is?  Hitty Moana asks.

I do believe our little Sara Cole Resin boy has arrived.  Hitty Patience explains to Hitty Moana.  I didn't realise though that he would be all in bits, the poor boy.  I wonder how we are going to join him together?

It looks like our person has two Hitty people to attend to now, doesn't it?  Hitty Moana replies.

Bonnet Swap and Bonnet Prize

It has been very quiet here at Rose Cottage, we have just been getting on with things enjoying the Autumn as best we can.  Today we were delighted to receive a wonderful packaged from America.  Inside was this amazing bonnet, apron and matching bag.  I wonder who would get to wear it first.  Well poor Hitty Ethel and Hitty Carol Faith had to concede that it was too small for them.  It did fit me and Hitty Granny Estelle, but we had to admit it looked best on Hitty Moana, especially with her pretty brown dress she was wearing. The colours just tied in beautifully.

Hitty Moana, just can't stop smiling, she is so thrilled with it and wants to send a very big thank you to Lauri on behalf of all the Hittys at Rose Cottage.

Just look at all the wonderful detail Lauri and the Brushtail Hittys have put into this bonnet.

This was a fun swap and we do feel very lucky indeed to have been partnered with Lauri who really did spoil us.

This is the bonnet and shawl we sent to Lauri.  We also sent a pie for Thanksgiving, but forgot to take a photo of it.

Secondly I would like to show you the lovely little knitted bonnet we received from Tree as a consolation prize for the KAL on HittyGirls.  It is so sweet and matches the buttons on my blue dress so I was lucky enough to be the first to wear it.  Certainly it will keep my ears nice and warm when I venture outside in it.

She also sent us a wonderful piece of fabric which I am sure we are going to enjoy making something from.

Thank you very much Tree, it is very sweet indeed.

Dressed for the colder months

A pleasant morning was had making a couple of dresses for Hitty.

I don't usually make two Hitty dresses the same, but one is for my girl, Hitty Moana, and the other is for a friend's Hitty.

A lovely dress for winter

Hitty Moana is quite pleased to be dressed warmer now.

All the Hitty girls dressed for Winter.
