Quick update

Hi all i have been trying to do this update for days now! For some reason Blogger wouldn't let me upload pics. Very strange. So not much stitching has been done. This is because i have been practising on my sewing machines. Having 3 of them , 2 of which are vintage has given me a kick up the arse to learn how to use them. My partner is actually alot better with them then me. I aim to be able to make a custom bedding set for my daughters cot and some cute dresses and such like. I admit i have spent more time looking at patterns and fabrics then i have sewing in a straight line.
Over the weekend My partner and I brought a new cot for my daughter as her old one was way to big to fit in the cove in our bedroom. Its a pity because it was a lovely oak cotbed. Now we have a new one we have lots more room and even managed to make that side of the room nursery like. I have never been able to do a nursery room for either of my children due to lack of room and funds. So being able to do this actually made me cry alittle. It will look alot better once we have redecorated and I have made the bedding. For now though i am happy that it looks pretty-ish
Esmai seems rather happy with it too.

While doing my little bit of sewing practise i made a dinosaur for my niece. I also gave her sister the pillow i had finally finished.

Esmai has grown alittle and is a very happy girl,from morning till night shes constant smiles and giggles. Connor is doing great in school and last week received "Pablo the Parrot" (the class mascot) who was allowed to stay at our house for the weekend as he has been so well behaved! I'm unbelievably proud of him. More so since he is wearing his eye patch everyday with no fuss at all.

As i have now reached 50 followers and over 5000 page views i feel its time for a giveaway. It has been ages since i have done one. Details and entry will be in the next post. Which will possibly be written tonight or tommorow.

Hello to all the new followers!

Esmai looks like she is so happy, what a great smile. Her cot area in the alcove looks wonderful, very pretty.
