Neglected


So I've been busy... yes with my 3 kids... housework boringness... but more importantly sewing the blues away! There's nothing like starting a new project to lift my spirits:


They'll be more on this at some point but it is the most brilliant cheater print I've ever seen!

Other fabric I adore is Geekly Chic, available here at the Fat Quarter Shop



and those glasses were my contribution to the fabulous Low Volume Swap brilliantly organised by Rebecca - these are my beautiful 10" squares:


and if that wasn't enough she sent me some (can't get in the UK) Denyse Schmidt fabric:


Rebecca is a total star and the gal knows me well! Thanks so very much chica!


In other yummy fabric news...

there is a brand new quilt along featuring the gorgeous Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House! My sponsor, Christa Quilts, is starting her 6th in a series of complete quilt alongs on her blog. String of Pearls will launch Wednesday, June 5th at ChristaQuiltsBlog.com

Tonight is the first time I've put the baby to bed and used the monitor... I know that's crazy but I've really enjoyed keeping her with me in the evenings, after 4 months though it seems a little much and since she slept for a total of about 40 mins today I thought she might need a good nights sleep! So far I've gone up once writing this blog post but fingers crossed I will be able to spend a bit more time reading blogs etc. in the evenings now! ooohh look at me, I'm hands free!! ;)

  3. I remember the first time we used the monitor with the wee man. His dad was up and down those stairs all night anyway! Hugs to all the brennan clan x

  4. Oh life is changing for you. We didn't have a baby monitor. I bet that's nice. I saw recently baby camera's so that parents could see how the baby was doing without peeping in.

  8. Enjoy being handsfree! We used the monitor all the time and would hear every little peep. Eventually we had to go monitor free, imagine the horror! And he did fine. :)

  10. Never needed the monitor for my kids. They never had any problem making loud noise. Now that my baby is four, I kinda like the idea of having a baby to cuddle every night. Might have to go find one to borrow!

  17. So glad I am not the only one with the baby monitor deal. It was when I went back to work at 10 weeks that I put her in her own room with it. But it still took me two weeks to trust it and sleep well. But until I go to bed, she sleeps in my arms still (almost 14 weeks now!) But I figure.... they're only little once, and its not harming them at all :)
