I also under estimate myself as well. I always talk myself down and suggest “I can’t do that” when in fact if l try l usually can… well, hold on there was that one time with the zig zag granny blanket. I pulled it out and started again five times the sixth time l gave up!
So l’ve been having a spate of baby blankets, one for my niece, which in turn convinced my daughter that my newest grand daughter, Faery girl needed one, so l made her one, then l made one for my middle girl child that was nightmarish! Then l made one for a friend of my first daughter who was having a baby shower, it was a rainbow blanket and l fell in love with it!
So enough blankets l needed some fast projects, so l decided to make a dress for my doll which has been made a replica of my first Grand baby Sweetpea! Then number one daughter and my niece both commented they would dress their daughters in that dress! So l decided to make then each one.
My niece is due mid November so l started one for her baby shower which was last week however l didn’t get it finished in time, luckily l had made a nappy cake to take, my two daughters and l pooled our money and made a three layer nappy (Diaper for our overseas friends) cake. So anyways l’m keeping it now until she’s born. So the rush was gone l decided to add a bonnet and some booties. All the time wondering if l could even do it!
Well tonight l finished the set and l’m pleasantly surprised with how good it’s turned out. I always feel nervous making things for other people my mind questions..
“What if they don’t like it!”
“What if the colours are wrong?”
“Is it too old fashioned?”
When my daughter took the rainbow blanket l told her “if the pregnant friend didn’t like it, bring it back l’ll make her something else” from reports she loved it.
So here it is…
