It’s been a busy couple of weeks at our house, so haven’t had a chance to blog much. First up is the finished baby cocoon: I love the knobbly texture, it make it look so yummy & cozy, and the colour is even nicer than I thought it would be. Now I just need a baby to put in it! *taps foot impatiently*.
By Tracey & Esther, to list six things that make me happy. 1) A tiny boy, sleeping peacefully (or not) in his bed (or not).

Whoever said this obviously had never had a child, and so I would respectfully suggest an alteration: “The only certainties in life are death, taxes, and newborn poo when out & about!” When my sister-in-law recently announced she was expecting, my mind went into overdrive trying to think of an appropriate
Finally, a chance to try out my lovely Lime Tart kit! I have been itching to a) dive into this kit, and b) scrap this photo, but I’ve been a good girl, and worked towards finishing my WIP’s first.
