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!

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!! ;)
