First can I just wish you all a very happy new year. A tad late I know, but I'm here now! And secondly, how did it get to be January so soon????
I never intended to have such a long break from blogging. Honest! With Christmas, new year, 2 new nephews and pregnancy time just seems to be flying by without me actually achieving anything. We had a very nice Christmas and new year with family and Hattie got lots of lovely new books and toys for us to trip over(!) including a very pretty little wooden pram. I got a much needed new computer (mine was really ooooooold), chocolates, bath goodies, fabric, books and stocking fillers. I will photograph my nice new fabrics once I remember when I have the camera out!
We're starting to be a little more prepared for the new arrival. We bought our double buggy at the weekend and I know where the crib is! With only 7 weeks to go till DDay its all getting very real that we'll have 2 under 2 VERY soon(!) :-S
Craft-wise, I've not really been doing a lot. I did make some Christmas presents and failed to photograph any of them before posting them off in time for the big day. Alice got a cute little apron and tea towels sets to match her new kitchen. My sister Victoria got a baby sling (as did SIL) and Hayley (other sister) got foot warmers (microwave rice warmer thingies)and an IOU for a pair of socks. My mum got a nice little drawstring bag full of fancy bath goodies. Oh! And I made Christmas bunting for the house as we were only having a little tree, what with a toddler in the house (a toddler?! How did that happen????!!!!).
I've not really made any new years resolutions as such, but I really should try and blog more regularly. I need to buy less fabric – I'm going to use up as much of my stash as I can and only buy what I need for a specific project/order. I want to make something for the new baby. I've not made anything yet for Bun2. He/she might feel a little neglected if they don't have some nice mummy-made things to play with! I have crafting plans, but just need the time to do them!
