Three girls and now.....a baby boy!

A good friend of mine has three delightful daughters and about 3 weeks ago they all welcomed little Will into their family. Actually he wasn't so little weighing in at over 10 pound.

I put together this little gift pack for them, I know Mel will love it all. They live on a farm south west of Mackay so the cowboy applique is perfect.

The fabric from the hat comes from a great pile of fabrics my sister sent over from Japan. I haven't really had the chance to use them until now and I think the frogs make a perfect hat.

More swap photos

I thought I would post some pics of Ashton wearing the lovelies made by Lisa. I also forgot to mention in my previous post that they were all wrapped in a lovely, colourful piecce of fabric perfect for something for Ashton.
I apologise for the terrible photos, I had mini mum telling Ashton "Come on darl smile for your sister (I am the sister and she is the mum apparentely!)

EB Kid's Clothing Swap

I can't believe the time has come to open these parcels. It seems like yesterday that I was thinking that I had all the time in the world to complete them. Well the time has come, that 2 months certainly did fly! I opened my ...well Ashton's parcel from Lisa this morning in a mad rush to get ready and out the door. All I can say is WOW and thankyou to Lisa. I just love handmade items and we were lucky enough to recieve 4 pieces! Thanks so much to Ingrid for organising the swap, it was great fun and a great way to get some sewjo back!

You will have to check out Xena's blog to see full pics of what I sent her, I completely forgot to take full pics, I just took the sneak peeks.

Sneak Peak

Just a little sneak peak of my clothing swap items. My items are packaged up and ready to be sent tomorrow. Here is a sneak peak until Friday when all will be revealed.

Blogger has made my robot go sideways - this is not an artistic expression (I suck at those!)

I've been a bad blogger... I thought I had better do a post of some kind.

It is Ellyse's 4th birthday in a few weeks and preparations are underway. Ellyse has three great loves (apart fomr K, Ash and I ), they are babies, Hi 5 and pink. I wasn't going to do a baby themed party, and Hi 5 party is just not my style, so it was left to be a pink party. She loved the idea and we have had many gorgeous discussions since. I remembered that Ingrid had done a pink party for Lottie and I had thought what a great idea it was at the time.

We have a list of pink foods and pink things to do, and last night I designed the invitations. I am no designer and probably have things very wrong in the design world, but I think it looks pretty. Ellyse had a good giggle at the goggle photo.

If anyone is still reading I promise there will be some sewing news soon!
