A Babywearing Post

Well since its been here over a week I think its about time I blogged about my gorgeous Didymos Ginkgo wrap conversion by Fay at Opitai Baby. This stunning carrier arrived on the 21st and I decided against blogging about it over Christmas as I anticipated readership to be down and I want to share it with as many people as possible!

Ginkgo Opitai conversion

So for the babywearing geeks amoung us, the wrap was a size 6 and was converted to a wrap-tai with pleated shoulders, a wrap straps, head rest and rainbow topstitching on the waist which we requested to be 4 inches wide and floppy (so not standard). We went without sear darts as we are now finding they aren’t giving T* the ‘ideal’ seat. In the picture above I have folded over the waist to make the body of the carrier shorter as this carrier is for when T* is a bit bigger. The picture just doesn’t do the carrier justice, it is just beautiful and best photographed in natural light.

So, the finer details aside, wow, what a carrier! So comfortable, very supportive and beautifully made…I can’t wait til the drier weather is here so we can really try it out! Huge thanks to Fay at Opitai Baby for your amazing work!

And on the subject of babywearing, I’m looking into setting up a Folksy shop to sell some simple babywearing (and other) artwork. Watch this blog for a link….

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

…And I’m still not ready! But I’m not to worried, the world won’t come crashing down if a few gifts don’t get to their recipients on time! This year winter solstice falls on the 22nd December and if we get the chance we’ll do something small to mark the occasion.

I have to confess to be addicted to needle-felting. I bought a kit from www.handspinner.co.uk and I’m loving it. Disaster struck on Friday when I managed to break a needle…cue a mad scrabble to order more needles in time for the Christmas postal standstill. I’m managing to get a bit done while little T has her daytime nap in my lap. I’ll post photos of my progress soon.

I’ve also been trying to fit in a bit of reading. I got hold of a copy of The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson, but I think I’ll have to come back to it in the future, I’m already put off by some of the references that are made regarding the horses. *Sigh*

Our Didymos Ginkgo wrap was converted on Saturday by Fay at Opitai and I am so excited! I’m anxiously awaiting photos via email to cheer up this miserable winter day…EEEEEEEEEEEEK!!! Lol!
