Baby Millicent has arrived!

Well - we are 10 days in.....Millicent Rose is a star - taking after her mummy in the being good at eating and sleeping type things. We have ventured out of the house twice and are very proud of ourselves x
Millie is loving the baby sling which means I am hands free!

The builders finished before she arrived but I didn't have the time (or inclination) to unpack and re-arrange my stash before Millie I am looking forward to rediscovering my treasures and finding some new inspiration.

All the time in the world?

Its sunny April, Easter has flown by (although I did unpack the easter decorations they didn't quite make it on to display) and everything is changing...
I have finished work to start my Maternity leave - I am having a baby girl, due in a couple of weeks.
I have all the time in the world.....don't I?
I had a vision of making lovely frocks and accessories for baby E, filling her new little world full of handmade lovelies...but I just can't get started.

The builders will be finished by tomorrow, then I will be able to start unpacking my stashes of fabrics and trimmings, maybe the inspiration will come?
