Car seat made new...

A very dear friend of mine is expecting Twins any day now. She already has a gorgeous Daughter, and therefore one car seat, so when double trouble (!) was predicted she asked to borrow my baby car seat. This is it, brand new carrying Little Miss, eight days old. However, eight and a half years later, it was looking a bit sorry for itself! Whilst on the internet one day, I stumbled across a truly inspirational blog, Made, http://www.dana-made-it.com/search/label/Carseat%20Covers and was motivated to transform my zebra print seat... ...into this!
The Twins are one of each sex, and as there is already a girl in the family, and hence lots of girlie things, I decided to cover it for the boy! I had some Laura Ashley cowboy fabric waiting in my stash for something special, and this was it... I can't tell you how happy I was with the finished result (as was my friend) and I'm looking forward to meeting the little ones and seeing it in use!

It just so happens that Dana (Made) is having a month celebrating boys, there are so many wonderful ideas for those of us who love to create, but perhaps fall short of ideas for boys, check it out...http://www.dana-made-it.com/

Half term fun...

...What fun we had!!
Unfortunately the week started with the funeral of D's lovely Aunt, and although sad, was a happy celebration of her, and a rare get together of all the little cousins x
We have had pyjama days, baking days, crafting days and on the last day of the week we took our three small people to London to go to Dinosaurs Unleashed... It was FAB!!! Huge, life sized, moving dinosaurs!!

From there, we went on to Covent Garden, where we met up with Little Misses Godfather, and the youngest ended up performing (very entertaining!!!)

Then on to Chinatown for a delicious dinner!!

Now it's back to school (hooray!), a mountain of washing to tackle (boo!), work to be undertaken, but best of all some gifts to make for a lovely friend's newborn Son!
Hope you are not getting too soggy where you are...
