Just a quick note to say 'Yes, I'm still pregnant with less than 4 weeks to go'. I have been really sick with my asthma so haven't been able to do much. It has been so frustrating. I am so disorganised with this baby and have only bought 2 nighties and some nappies for the preparation. Hopefully this week I will get on top of things and get things sorted.
Above are some things I have made this last couple of months. A doll for a little 5 year old with her birth date embroidered in a heart and her name down one leg. I dyed the hair with black tea. Just a wee experiment I wanted to try. She is made out of cotton velvet and the dress is from fabric I bought from Melbourne. I did a slightly different face from my other dolls. Always nice to change it up a bit and doing one off things.
Whipped up a skirt for another 5 year old's birthday.
Lastly I made a sleeping bag for a 6 year old boy, for is favourite monkey. Apparently the monkey sleeps in it every night. I even put nylon fabric in the inside to feel like a real sleeping bag and quilted it in straight lines. I thought if he didn't like it he can use it as a bag, just for another option but I think his monkey is very happy to sleep in it.
I also started my robot quilt but haven't taken any photo's yet still got a long way to go.
