Yay! Crafty things!

I have a couple of WIPs (works in progress). This one is almost done. It's a birth record for Baby Bean, my brother-in-law & gf's baby which is due at the end of Oct. It's not far off being finished. I have some buttons, ribbon and dowl to make it into a wall hanging. Then all I have to do is wait for the big day to fill in the name, date & weight, and a little something in pink or blue - depending on what flavour bean baba is.

I am using the same theme to make a card for my step-bro & his wife who are also expecting at the end of Oct. They know they are having a boy so that's all blues so far, but no where near as finished as this one so I'll post a pic of that later.

I have been to Fabrix in town this week and bought a meter each of some pretty strawberry and cupcake fabrics. I have also bought some tarten fat quaters. So now I have some bits to practice on, and I'm thinking about making a couple of small drawstring bags and drawer scenters as my first sewing machinr project. I'll post how it goes!

On a totally different note.... the diet is on hold again. I am constantly hungery and hovering around 13st 2lb anf 13st 6lb. Also Dad is over again this week so dieting will be hard enough. And I fancy doing some baking!!!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
