But it's sort of come good - thank gawd!
Well, what with all the lovely snow we've had this weekend in the Forest of Dean (Gloucestershire)

My daughter Seren (aged 4) announced on Friday morning, over breakfast and talking about snowman building, that her gloves didn't fit and could I please make her some more to go out in, TODAY! Talk about pressure!
So I drew round her hand, enlarged the template a bit and off I went. Here's the first attempt:
|Possibly the right side for a doll!|
That'll teach me not to make the first attempt out of the final material you want to use!!
So take 2:
|Fine finger size, but the wrist opening would barely fit a newborn!|
So out we went with Seren sporting these, tucked into her coat sleeves as I'd not had time to russle up any elastic!
