At my house....

Yesterday, Abbey and I went out for some "mummy and big girl" fun.

While out, I was mesmerised by these beautiful autumn leaves. I had to bring some home. I had no idea what I wanted to do with them. I just had to have some.

So today I pulled out my macro lens, and took some photos. Lovely.

Visit Lou for more here.

Coming soon!

Soon, my online shop will open!

I am so excited, and nervous and terrified all at the same time.

A few more things need finishing first.

Crafty Mother's Day goodies

(Apart from thinking I had mastitis, which turned out to be a blocked milk duct - all OK now) I had a lovely Mother's Day.

Look at all the beautiful hand made goodies I received from Abbey. I am very lucky!

Seeing spots

I borrowed this beautiful book from the library, and made this cute circular pincushion for my spot loving sister in law Stepf.

The fabric is from Japan, and so lovely and soft - thank you to Jacqui from Mee a Bee for sending me some of her fabric scraps when I ordered Abbey a gorgeous custom made kinder bag earlier in the year.

The book is beautiful, but I am glad I did not buy it, as there was a fault with the enclosed pattern, but luckily I sussed it out.

My little brother suggested we make him a MUCH bigger one, so he can use it as a bean bag. Imagine how much fabric I would need for that!

Bibs 'n messes

I am doing my best to enjoy Zoe starting solids, but she has her own ideas about it all. She refuses to eat anything off a spoon. She will happily chew on a spoon. Just don't try to feed her from a spoon.

She is more than happy to feed herself. Actually, she loves feeding herself. And the bigger it is, the more she seems to enjoy it. So she is now eating vegemite sandwiches, chunky steamed vegetables, mini sausage rolls and her favourite is to munch on a chicken drumstick or wing. Last week, a chicken drumstick kept her happily amused for over 40 minutes (yay! I got dinner made on time that day)

The down side of this is the mess. Everywhere. So only bibs with long sleeves will do. I only had two bibs like these. So I ordered one off this wonderful website and I surprised myself and made one this weekend, and completely finished it too.

Fits her perfectly. Lovely :)
