Nesting and Resting

Hi! Just a quick post to say hello to everyone. I've been missing from blogland because I've been very busy getting things ready for our new baby. Such as, organizing baby clothes into piles of neutral, blue and age range. Looking at how small they all are, washing them, sniffing them, rubbing them on my cheek. Organizing them some more. You get the idea! :)

The heat the other weekend really knocked me for six, I'm glad it's cooled back down again. I'd like it to stay that way until this baby arrives. Only 5 weeks left now until it's arrival!!! It's gone so fast! I'm starting to feel a little nervous now.

Dylan helped me to make a little den in the garden, to help shade us both from the sun, he's very helpful.

I'll be back later in the week to show you my latest creation. I was going to make this bag, but I couldn't find a pattern for it, and because I'm feeling very lazy at the moment, I couldn't be bothered to work it out for myself.

See you later!

Yay! Another Project Completed!

I decided just before Christmas that I'd like to have a go at making a crochet blanket. I've only done a couple of crochet projects before this, like flowers and wrist warmers and felt like I should be brave and try something a bit bigger! I'm so pleased with how it turned out! It has taken rather a long time to complete, because I tend to have quite a few projects on the go at once! The pattern was really easy to follow and the yarn is so beautiful and soft. I used Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton Aran (it was on sale here).

Here the blanket is relaxing on Dylan's new bed!

And here's a lovely close up shot! :)

Thanks for dropping in!

Ta Daaa!

The bedroom is finished! I'm so pleased with it, I wish it was my bedroom! It still needs a few pictures and things here and there, but it's lovely all the same. Dylan thinks it's great, he's enjoying sleeping in his new little bed, instead of the cot. The bed does have a bed guard on it, but it doesn't look pretty enough to be in the photo's! The bunting on the ceiling was bought from here, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!

Also this week, I turned 31! We all had a lovely day of shopping, I've also done quite a bit online too!!! I'm just waiting for it to arrive now.... lots of lovely yarn! I've also bought myself a new pair of flip flops on Ebay. I used to own a pair of these a few years ago, I couldn't believe my luck when I found them for sale. Brand new, with tags and in my size!!! I've bought the yarn so I can make a matching bag. :)

See you soon!

Circus Tent 3D Frame

Morning! I've finished the altered frame I mentioned in my last post. I had loads of fun making this, I hope you all like it. I used loads of different Sassafras for this, it includes, Nerdy Bird, Apple Jack, Bungle Jungle and Happy Place. Sassafras is definitely my fave brand, if you hadn't already guessed! ;)  I wish I'd taken the photo's before I put the glass frame over really. I had a right job on trying to take the photos without getting a reflection off the glass. And all the time I was trying to take these photos Dylan was running a toy tractor up and down my leg! If anybody's got any tips on how to avoid getting my reflection in the photos, I'd be really grateful.

All being well Dylan's bedroom should be finished this weekend. I'll be really glad when it is because the house is upside down right now and it's driving me crazy!

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

Thank You Kelly!

I received my prize today that I won on Kelly's lovely blog. The goodies are lovely! I'm going to save the Cath Kidston dusters in my sewing box,  if I have a baby girl I'll make some bibs with them. If I have a boy I'll do the dusting with them! :) I can't wait to use the Hello Kitty memo pad, I'll use some of it on a layout that's for sure.

The decorating is coming along slowly but surely, everything takes twice as long with Dylan here! Bless him!

See you all soon!
