I’ve been busy sewing gifts. It’s fun to make things for other people – especially very little other people.
First is for Justine’s baby boy who is due any day now. Poor Justine hasn’t been too well over the last few weeks. I hope little Hunter turns up soon and she feels loads better once she gets to cuddle him. Remember the lovely things Justine sent for Katie which I blogged about here?
I made a little ‘sunshine lion’ taggie toy. Hopefully he’ll be good to look at hanging from a pram or baby gym for the first few weeks and then good to grab, feel and chew once Hunter is a little older.
I also made some sleep gowns which will hopefully keep him comfy and cosy during his first few weeks – and make nappy changes at night a lot easier too.
Justine commented how much she liked the ones I made for Katie which was very handy as it simplified the process of working out what to make for her and her wee boy!
Then a couple of weeks ago I went up to a friend’s house for a few drinks and thought it would be good to make something rather than taking wine or chocolates.
She has a very neutral kitchen so I hoped this little pot stand would fit in well – I find it hard to tone down the colours I use! The photos look better when they are the right way round but they have refused to co-operate for some reason.
More dodgy photos I’m afraid but I’m working against the clock as we are off on holiday on Saturday and I really want to catch up before I go.
I made him a baby blanket. A little different than the one I made for his big brother but with a couple of fabrics the same – I thought similar would be better than too much of an overlap. Hopefully he’ll enjoy snuggling under it.
And last of all, but definitely not least, I was lucky enough to receive a gift for me. The lovely Sarah from Down by the Sea had a giveaway which I won. Yay! Yummy Dorest biscuits and chocs, and also a chocolate for each of the children (saved for when we set off travelling on Saturday). Thankyou Sarah!
