It’s been mighty quiet around here recently as blog updates have taken a backseat to catching up on work – I have wanted to post about Miranda-Jane for weeks and weeks but spare moments have been few and far between. Just before I left London I saw her on Jezze’s blog and rushed over to etsy to snap her up, supplied a still unfamiliar address for delivery, and hoped we’d both arrive safely at our new home.

Miranda-Jane... already speaking Dutch!

We did.

Being from sunny Southern Africa (Cape Town, in fact), and therefore accustomed to much hotter climes, she’s very pleased she brought her socks with her as Amsterdam turns chillier and chillier. She also arrived wearing two of Jezze‘s beautiful handmade button badges – an unexpected and delightful added extra. Thanks Jezze!

Miranda-Jane is a very charming companion and a pleasure to have around. 

Here she is (toasty in socks) trying to persuade me to delve into my crochet bag and get back to work on the Erika Knight throw I started ages ago and have all but abandoned over these past few busy months…
