Top turned Dress

Here is a top I made for Imogen out of the Ottobre Magazine turned out a bit bigger than I thought it would be.So I made a pair of matching nappy pants with ruffles on the bum(of course) and turned it into a dress. But havn't got photos of her in the as well nappy pants as well. Fabric is from the November books by Kokka.

These photos are taken with my new camera a Panasonic Lumix in blue. I have to get used to it yet and am still learning how to use all the settings but am loving it so far it is a nice point and shoot.

On another note I am without sewing machine this week and am very surprised at how lost I feel without out it I won't get it back for another week yet. I don't know what I am going to do without it I know why I have taken so long to nother to get it serviced. The bonus is that when I get it back it shall be as good as new so I can't wait.

9 Months

I know I missed 8 mths but it unbelievable how fast time is going and how quickly my baby is growing. Somewhere in between 8 and 9 mths you started to stand by yourself with holding on to anything. Now at 9 mths you have started to take your first steps so far one and a bit but still you are getting their very quickly.

You have developed so much more personality and love to play with your big sister even though sometimes she can be quite cruel to you. You have started talking with bub first followed by mum and just lately you have added a dad here and there.

You are sleeping through the night which is fantastic for mumma as she needs the extra sleep. So life with you and your big sister is great .

Matilda's Quilt

I have been very slack on the blogging as of lately (promise I will try harder). There has been lots going on here at home between crafting and normal day to day activities. I have a lot of things I have made lately that I want to blog about so I thought I would start with my first quilt.

It is made from the Birdie collection by me and my sisters. I am happy with how it turned out and my girl loves it to. She has to take it every were we go.

So I went to add this post a while ago but then my camera started playing up so I left it and have just got it working again so finally here is the quilt.
