However, I did made these star and moon cushions. The moon is made from pure wool felt, and the star is made from a crazy gold fabric I found on ebay. I like the way they sort of 'hug' each other, totally accidental of course!
The other day I moved this little cupboard into our titchy living room and discover that the changing mat fitted on top perfectly...
also, by lucky hap, I had this little rack left over from the shop (I used them to hold our cards in) I had already painted them the same colour as the cupboard luckily and it fitted neatly on the side to hold all the baby stuffs, handy innit!!
I bought a moses basket and stand (SO cheap, like £30 for the set??) and customised it a bit with ribbon and pom poms (I think I was getting a bit carried away at this point).
...one little whale was left unsold at the shop, so it now lives at home with us...it's got a squeaker inside!
I also found this nice soft little quilt in H&M of all places...looks like a starry sky to me...
The stars on this fabric are actually metallic gold, snazzy eh?
So thats me all ready, packed my hospital bag already! Just overnight essentials,
...and tons of these Japanese pain relief!!! ; )...
Can't believe I got AGES to go yet, I am so desperate to have this baby now (can you tell??!!!) so that I can resume my life again. I am literally uncomfortable 24 hours a day with all manner of ailments. As 'beautiful' as pregnancy is, it is blimmin' HARD work and you are left with very little dignity! ; )
Finding it so much worse the second time around : (
By the way, when I was in my pom-pom-tastic overdrive, I made some for our daughter too, I think she likes them, but she has learnt that, to be polite gets you treats, so I'm never sure whether to trust her compliments these days.
Going out for nice walks or chasing our littlun around the house is a thing of the past in the last few months as I have the mobility and stamina of an 85 years old lady.
Making biscuits was a rare activity I managed with the littlun in-between movie marathons and chain watching kids programs. My mister made these amazing cutters for her xmas pressie, they are made out of solid silver and each one is hallmarked and spells out her name! We made some choccie biccies with them...
and some more biscuits to eat whilst watching telly.
Lastly, we just wanted to say a HUGE (belated) thank you to Gilly and Great Uncle Charlie for the delivery of Frank the Koala all the way from Australia! I never saw her more excited to receive something in the post. Frank (although she calls him Frankie (??) has knocked Buzz Lightyear off the top spot for fave toy ranking. Frank gets the pillow
I'm sure she will be saving some lives (of dead jelly fish) with her beach patrol T shirt in the summer too!
I'm in hibernation mode till D-day.
