Weekend away

A weekend to take off shoes, go for long walks by the river and watch little ducklings take their first swim.

Baby Soft Toy ||

Another soft toy - this time for 8 week old Linda.

Someone told me the elephant hip bag has made it onto babygadget. The description made me laugh, especially the half-eaten sweet. So true.

"It is an incontestable fact that kids like schlepping junk around. On an average day, examination of one of my daughter's several bags, pockets or boxes would reveal an eclectic collection comprising one or many of the following: hair clips, a coin, a sweet (half-eaten in all probability), a Kinder egg toy, and a vital scrap of paper (importance not visible to adults). "

Baby Soft Toy

There's been a lot of sewing - mostly playing around with ideas, which is a lot of fun ... and learning a lot ...... and failing a lot and .......trying again.... I am sure you know what I mean.

This is a little soft toy for Lino - who is now just over a month old. For little Lino, I stole a little bell from a Lindt chocolate Easter bunny and hid it inside this soft toy, so it makes a little sound when moved.
Does anyone know what else you can put in to make a sound?

Summer jacket

There's been a lot of sewing going on - somehow, arms and legs are a lot longer than last year. This new jacket is hiding a whole jungle in there. Just right for going to the zoo and having a little chat with the giraffes.
