It’s Definitely Spring 

The Letter I for a title today, it’s a bit of a cheat word for this weeks abc123challenge round-up.  We’re not as organised this week either. My best friend came to visit us on Friday so I’ve not had the usual time to write.  I’m sat in a cafe with …

Rainbow Pencil Case

Rainbow Pencil Case Alison Glass fabric is so colourful, it deserves to make a rainbow.  I bought a fat eighth bundle of her Sun prints collection not so long ago so that I could have a play and make a rainbow.  I like pouches and cases so I decided to …

It’s Hard to Put My Finger On It

I’ve gone for a walk. Left the kids with Dave and headed out alone with my thoughts. It’s sunny the birds are singing the air is crisp, a slight breeze. It’s a perfect spring day. I’m sat on my favourite bench (the one with the little house), ducks are approaching, …

Holiday Special – London #abc123challenge

H is for Holiday!  We went to London for a long weekend last week.  It has to be our first proper break away since baby CABS was born and it was well overdue.  The short Winter months with a newborn have dragged and we can see the spring in plain …

The Patchwork Cat

One of my bucket list items this year was to make keepsake quilts for my kids out of their baby grows.  Getting totally sidetracked from this though I have ended up making a cuddly patchwork cat toy from the Robots tiny clothes. While I was making it I got very …

H is for Home Play Day

Sometimes you just get stuck at home on a home play day.  We’re not very good at being in all day.  If it’s the weekend then it’s even worse. Dave is hopeless at staying in and we’re always on the go at the weekend because of it. There are times …

G is For Growing Cress

Fun and Fast #ABC123Challenge

It’s Friday when I normally try write-up my round-ups. The perfect day for a letter F.  As usual the week has flown by faster than ever. We’ve had plenty of fun but I clicked my neck one morning half way through the week so I’ve had a not so pleasant …

Baby Toy Carrier

Baby Toy Carrier It’s been something that I’ve wanted to make the Robot for so long now.  As an avid baby wearer I always carried the Robot and now he can walk he often wants to copy what he sees around him. His Mummy carrying his baby sister!  It took …
