Hanging Around . . .

When my mojo goes on walkabout without me, I turn my mind to something completely different and now that I'm a Grandma it's a great excuse to do something that's just for fun so I made Jack a mobile for above his cot. 
The pine cones were found one day whilst walking Poppy and the felt and been winking at me for some time as were the beads. However the stick is very special. Jack's Grandad Reg, my husband passed away over 11 years ago, and Reg bought this stick back from a holiday a few years before he passed and Reg really treasured this stick. Grandad Reg was a fisherman which is why the green fish is on the mobile and Jacks Daddy really loves penguins. I love flowers, hearts and stars and Vicky chose some of the beads to use. So it's a really special make.
Jack seems very happy with it and will chat to it for 20 minutes in the morning before calling for his Mum or Dad.
As you can see is growing fast and is just getting cuter and cuter and more and more handsome!
Wishing you a lovely weekend, Sam xxx
