Welcome Harrison

A good friend of mine just had her second bub, I just couldn't wait to create some personal gifts for him and his big sister!

I made him a taggie ball, some appliqued singlets and a cushion cover. I was planning on making the cushion from Laast Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts, but my old machine can't embroider and I get a bit lazy and just went with a blanket stitch on the letter H (for Harrison). Of course I had to make big sister Chloe a little shirt too.

Last minute baby shower gift

What do you do when your friend is due with her third bub and someone decides to hold a baby shower for her? You know she has almost everything - and what she doesn't have I have.

Well I know that I am so less anal this time about having my nappy bag fully stocked now that I have to cart 2 kiddies around. I often just chuck Ashton's stuff in Ellyse's backpack and have trouble finding it all when needed. Karen from my EB sewing group suggested a nappy wallet, and it just so happened that Marie had made a nappy roll previously and it was similar to what I had seen on line. I added a change mat and this is the finished product. I think Hannah will be very happy with it.

Not sure if I will get to the taggie ball I was going to make to go with it, they don't take long so I may get it done in the morning. Keiran and I will be child free and off dishwasher, microwave, DVD recorder and phone shopping - oh the fun!
