Good Times

Wow, lots of views these past few days! There’s been lots of interest in my ‘Extra Needs & Babywearing’ piece so I plan on blogging some more on this subject in the near future.

My beautiful Rockpool lampwork pendant arrived, so pleased with it, my photo just doesn’t do it justice. Now just need to find the perfect chain! The only problem is my little person is fascinated with it, I just need to figure out how to keep it out of her hands…and her mouth!!

I have also finished my appliqué cushion, it is far from perfect but was great fun to do and I can’t wait to do more.

The small one is also having a busy couple of days, we went to hydro yesterday and we have physio today. She LOVES going in the pool and splashing around. I, however, found it exhausting trying to juggle a small toddler, getting us both dry and dressed without being able to put her down or sit her up! But it’s so worthwhile to see her smiling and laughing…she makes my heart melt every day. I am so incredibly lucky.

Older, But No Wiser

So I’m back after a busy few days! Thirty came and went and there was cake ~ chocolate of course. I have discovered the joys of Bondaweb and managed my first bit of machine appliqué. Its not great, but its a start lol. On Sunday we visited the National Woolen Museum in Drefach Felindre and saw pictures of babies being worn in traditional Welsh shawls. My small person enjoyed looking around from the comfort of our Ginkgo. I had a low day on Sunday but we all went for a short walk down the lane and by the time we got back in I was feeling much more uplifted. Its great how a bit of fresh air and some exercise can improve the mood!

I’ve decided to look into Art Journalling, I’m waiting for a book through the post to see what its all about then I might give it a go.

So there we are, a quick catch up. I’ll be back in the next couple of days to post something that makes a bit more sense. I also want to say “Hi!” to the lovely readers who I hear are dipping into this blog…its great to know you are reading and enjoying xx

A couple of pictures just to brighten up a dull text…

Autumn Walk

Small-talk

Wow! Feeling tired lately…not sure if its the changing season or keeping up with the busy small person. The wind was blowing a gale last night, it still is. I didn’t sleep all that well, might have been something to do with the mini spider related freak out at bed-time coupled with the fidgety co-sleeping toddler. And I keep dreaming of cord! Brown cord with birds on. Just need to figure out what I’m supposed to do with the cord before I invest in it at £9.50 per 1/2m!

I think I’m getting the hang of my sewing machine, just waiting on some Bondaweb from eBay so I can crack on with the appliqué. I’m ridiculously excited, trying to run before I can walk and discovering that a ‘helpful’ toddler on my lap is not the best way to practise my technique!

I’m also waiting on a gorgeous handmade lampwork Rockpool pendant from Lush Lampwork, my treat to myself for my upcoming birthday. I think I might have a look for a new silver chain too as my snake chain has kinks in from being tugged by small hands. I LOVE Julie’s beads, last month I got a set of her pretty Rolling Stones big hole beads in the purple colour-way and they lovely. Thankfully she has a facebook page which in my opinion is the best way to keep up with stuff I like without having to constantly check websites!

Anyway, must go, my favourite little person is blinking sleepily at me as she wakes from her lap nap….and I *think* I have a plan for the cord!!
