things lately...

Been meaning to visit the folks on the Isle of Wight for a while now, as we now have a new member of the family...little sweet cheeks herself: Amelie-Rose arrived a few weeks ago! Huge congratulations to my brother and his girlfriend.
We didn't get up to much other exciting stuff, in fact we were a bit lazy. Just eating and driving about in our van. We slept in it too, parked outside my mum's flat as usual.

Nao was sporting his Union Jack sunglasses...

...which suprisingly no one commented on!

I did a lot of this...

{and no, were not growing weed in our van, they are tomato plants to take home}

we also popped over to see Osborne House, y'know, Queen Vicky's holiday house.
It wasn't to my taste interior-wise, but the gardens were ok ; )
I liked the stone Hog the best.

Gosh and blimey, arnt we exciting?! 
In other news...
My shed is now rebuilt in the new garden {thanks Nao!} and I hope to get on with some baby sewing shortly. Got a whole load of patterns and ideas of things to make, which should keep me occupied whilst I become whale shaped. Also got loads of seeds and plants to get in the soil! I hope I get the chance to do domestic stuff soon...oh hummmm...


  1. LoL your plants in the van!
    I love Nao's sunglasses! They're fun. Hope you're feeling good and rested. Take care and keep making AWESOME things! Love the fabric bits you've made for the van.

  2. i have a picture of me pregnant right there where you were having coffee by the railings!!!! he is a 4 (almost 5) year old lovely little terror now ;)

  3. I am ridiculously in love with your van. And more so, every time you post something new about it. It just looks so lovely and cosy, and all i want to do is have one of my own to drink tea and eat hobnobs in!

  4. Oh, baby clothes!!! They are the best, and so much fun to make! I am a wee bit jealous! And so many lovely knitting patterns out there too. I used to live next door to a bubba with four aunties, and I swear he had a new knitted outfit every single day. Enjoy your new shed location, and all your crafting!

  5. Glad to hear you are in your new place! If you knit at all, you must join ravelry for loads of baby patterns...
    And your van looks so snug and cosy, makes me want to get back our old '75 pop-top and fix it up.

  6. I don't reckon you'll be whale shaped - you just don't got adequate foundations. Maybe porpoise shaped.

  7. hee...hee..."whilst I become whale shaped"...is way too cute.

    Glad you are settling in well in your new place. We had to move when the little one was just 6 weeks old... the worst possible timing. Love the hat you are wearing on the Isle of Wight photo. Especially how it's raised at the back.. very convenient for low ponytails. Where is it from?

    All the best,

  9. love Nao's glasses and style!!!! ahhh the palnt in the van...so cute!!!!! becareful when you kiss Pumba!!! ;)

  10. That van! So amazing!!
