And finally . . .

I can begin showing you all the pressies I’ve been working on.

Today I put the finalizing touches to one of the little pressies that has been on my to do list.

But over the weekend I actually got to give a little present to a very delighted mum to be of twins at her lovely baby shower.

Her reaction was exactly what makes giving a hand made gift so delightful, the little shriek as she realised what I had made and the big smile that said that’s exactly what I wanted

 Ok do you want to see

I was so excited when I thought to make it

here we go




She’s having twins remember, oo I wanna squeal now they are just so cute.

Though in case your a bit confused and are thinking ‘Oh how mean to call the babies thing 1 and thing 2’

don’t despair it’s a little joke playing on the Characters from the famous book

by Dr Seuss

The Cat in the Hat

I can only hope that her twins don’t bring as much mischief as thing 1 and thing 2 did in The Cat in the Hat.

I used the same pattern I used for this little hat here.

and I totally love how they worked out

Isn’t it just wonderful when you find the perfect colours for a project and it all comes together so well.

And now to just wait for the arrival of two little munchkins.

Wella a Pin-Up

In my last blog I promised some crafty gorgeousness, I had all intentions of revealing all to you over the weekend, but alas Saturday morning the whole family woke up feeling terribly ill. Mr C had already been sick for a few days, but by Saturday we were all feeling the ill effect of a terrible cough and cold. So our Saturday became a all curled up on the couch movie Saturday with the Playlist including “Narnia” and some good old “Harry Potter”. Sunday morning did not bring better news and most of Sunday morning was spent sitting in a doctors waiting room looking out at the beautiful blue skies we were all missing out on, feeling sorry for ourselves. The Doctor sent us all home with antibiotics and orders to rest, but as you parents out there know rest with a sick family is never easy. Mr C being the least sick of all (already having his major sick days) has been doing an excellent job of taking care of all of us.

Now before the weekend of coughs and chills I promised the aforementioned crafty gorgeousness and fortuantley before my body and brain turned to mush I finished my 2nd Pin up Girl . . .

This pin up involved using satin stitch, which I had a little trouble with and finally decided the outlined satin stitich was for me and by the 2nd shoe I think I had it down pat.

I wanted to add my own little touch so I decided on a naughty little cherry tattoo on the hip,

I decided on black hair for this one but she needed some highlights so i added some blond through out

Very sexy legs

I think she is one sexy lady, she’ll look lovely with my fan girl on the wall.

Well we are all slowly on the mend here, B is home from school today resting on the couch with more movies, I’m slowly catching up on the house work of a family of 5 and amongst all of our yucky sicky weekend I did manage to crochet up 1 bunting for the bunting swap.
