The Make List

Right, I have been on this sofa for nearly 3 weeks now (tonsillectomy recovery and then beating an infection - joy!). Can you imagine the chaos inside my head as I sit here browsing blogs/Pinterest etc and look whistfully at my fabric stash!?

This is the list I have made on my iphone in a bid to organise and prioritise my thoughts:

Fabric houses/Playtown for Moo (maybe with a quilty playmat?)
Bunting - with a couple of twists...
Sew lovely frocks from all the lovely Collette and Merchant and Mills Patterns I have stashed. (oh, and some for Moo with Oliver and S patterns).
Fairytale mobiles
more clouds....
Fairytale doll sets for Moo.

I want to start with the Princess and the Pea, as this is something I have been imagining ever since I found out I was pregnant ... I know there are a few sets already out there... a pretty cute one from a danish company called 'Maileg' for starters. . . .

However, in my head, their mattresses are more 'real', with ticking and piping ... all a little more vintage - not sure whether I can actually make it but I will keep you posted!

Back on track!?

I am not going to linger too much on the fact that I haven't blogged since the new year .. ahem ...

I have spent the last few months going back to the day job, clearing stock from my poor, full to bursting house and having fun with Millicent Rose.

There has been a little bit of sewing but unfortunately Tonsillitis has plagued me this year, and it is only now (I am currently recovering from a Tonsillectomy) that I have started to really think about future projects.


Millie loves her fluffy cloud, I originally intended it to be a hanging decoration but she likes to hug it and use it as a little pillow!

Baby Bunting
- this bunting was something I first made for a friend's baby a few years ago, I also sold some to a lovely new mum for a christening. Recently, I had a lovely surprise when she contacted me after 2 years to order some more bunting for her second baby!

right, off to go and furkle through my stash!
