We love flutterbys

Every little girl needs a flutterby skirt, don't you think!
I made this one for Roo a couple of weeks ago. I just adore the blue butterfly fabric, unfortunately is was just a piece of castoff remnant from the fabric shop and they haven't had anymore back in yet, but i will be creating a whole summer wardrobe for the whirlwind when they do. This is her modeling it, ( mummy did iron it eventually!) works well with her new obsession with walking on tippie toes.

So since then i have had a play round with some more girlie skirts.

This one is too big for Roo but would fit a 3-4 yr old... Think i will add it to the shop this week. and plan on using yesterdays fabric to make a few more.

Can i just tell you how die-hard my daughter is!....she had her MMR jab today and she didn't cry or nuffin! Mind you if looks could kill , Roo would have stopped the nurse dead in her tracks after the second jab!

Heres a little something from Birdie to make you smile! There really is nothing funnier than a toddler discovering new flavours!

The Postman always rings twice

The fruits of my ebay splurge arrived this morning....

......I feel a patchwork coming on!

And I also recieved an invitation to one of my oldest friends wedding in August. That gives me aprox 3months to stress out about what im going to wear!

After chasing the whirl wind round her room this morning, i finally managed to get a picture of her face up, and standing still! It was to send to Daddy. He feels sad he hasnt seen her for 9 days now!

Isnt she just the cutest!

Well here goes!

So I have decided to join in this whole blog thing! I thoroughly enjoy reading others, such as Soulemama, and Houseonhillroad , although i doubt mine will be half as good. And i guess it is a great way to promote myself and what i do....( Provided anyone reads it!)

So here is a snapshot of my life as it is today.. (just so you get a sense of me!)

I'm sitting on my sofa, in an over sized Primark tee and trakki bottoms! I'm not wearing makeup nor have i bothered with my hair today.

I'm not looking my best!

Good job my gorgeous man is not here. He is working away in Moscow for 3 wks. (1 down, 2 more to go!) Last time i spoke to him ( about 10pm last night here, and 1am there) he was sounding very merry in a bar watching Eurovision and being interviewed about it by the Russian press!

I would just like to say that i am not normally this much of a scruff, but being stuck on my own for a week with a 1yr old is beginning to take its toll!

Said 1yr old is of course looking her beautiful gorgeous self. (I don't mind slobbing it, but draw the line at having a slobby baby!) Luckily she is quiet a chilled baby, not hard work at all...darn! there goes my excuse for being lazy!

Well i haven't been completely lazy!.....I have been doing a bit of sewing!
This Fri is my mothers birthday, so i have decided to make her a bag!
This was yesterdays creation......

But I'm not sure i love it 100% for her! so i have started a new one today, This one is going to be more of a summer satchel. I prefer the fabric, and i have some lovely green stripe webbed ribbon that i am going to use as a strap, long enough to go across the shoulder.

if all goes well you may see a few in my misi shop next wk! I really do need to add more stuff, Im getting bored of looking at those babyshoes now!
