How tomorrow turned into a week...

I seem to keep saying this, but where did that go?... SO much to do and not quite enough time (not alone there I know!)

So, this past week has consisted of lots of sewing (nothing new there!), throwing a baby shower/coffee morning for one of the Mums at nursery (and therefore cleaning & tidying the house!), and little munchkin's Star Wars obsession growing daily. We have to wrestle him out of his dressing up outfits for bed each night!!

I also received my heart swap parcel from the lovely Taz (Ratbag). This is what she sent me:Lots of fab goodies... A cute decorated little birdhouse, a heart shaped cushion that she embellished with buttons (I'm sure I had the same cushion on my bed when I was younger, now Little Miss has it on hers!), a long necklace of wooden hearts, a pretty turquoise heart necklace, a great felt & button heart brooch (am wearing it now), heart post it notes, 2 beaded hearts and lots of sweeties!!! Love it all, thank you! Thanks also to Catherine of Mollycupcakes for arranging the swap xxxThis is what I sent her, I had read on her blog about her tattoos, so thought the fabric was appropriate for her!! I'm pleased to report she loved her parcel too!! We are partners again for the Easter/Spring swap, so I'm busy creating for that too... xThe following photos are from Little Misses Godfather's birthday party, his lovely girlfriend invited us to lunch to surprise him and got the little people to help make cupcakes for his birthday cake...
Ooooo, look at those colours...!!! Much fun had by all!!My Mother's Day flowers from the Little Munchkin...

A blanket for baby Pearl using CK London fabric (I had asked in store if they were going to sell the fabric and was told only oilcloth could be purchased, then found it for sale on good old ebay!), and a garland for Rory...And finally, today's Easter service in Church...Roll on the Easter holidays...

Spring...

Isn't it nice to see glimpses of Spring, beautiful flowers appearing in the garden and fresh, crisp days...

I've been busy getting back to normal now little one is back at nursery (boy, that was a long 2 weeks!) and am excited to be taking part in 2 swaps, so lots more creativity is on the cards for me!

Some of the things I have made over the past month:

Must dash now to pick up little miss from school...

Where did February go?...

...indeed, where DID it go? One minute we had snow, then glorious sunshine and a brief tease of Spring, and now the rain is pouring down (again!).

February was spent trying to keep little munchkin well enough to have his tonsils removed during half term (He had been due to have them removed in January but we were turned away as he had a temperature). All went well and he was very brave, eating biscuits and crisps less than an hour after coming back from surgery!!

As you can see, still full of beans and no suffering going on...!

Before half term we decided to make some teacher treats for Valentines...


Had the class mascot to stay...

And had a fun day trip to London on Valentine's Day...(Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Covent Garden to see the street performers and China Town for early dinner, finished off with yummy icecream in Leicester Square!). We had a really great time together and I was very proud of my little people and their behaviour :) x

Well, that's all for now, better go and check if Hubby is off to watch Football or if it's rained off... Back soon with some pics of what I've been making while stuck indoors with the little one...xxx
