Quick Christmas present

It really is a good thing that these were quick to do - I haven't been this stressed in a long time.

I am just having constant headaches and can't concentrate on anything, and have a million things to do.

A star is born

Okay, so it probably isn't a big for anyone outside of the family, but to me it is super exciting. Scott played Jesus in our church's annual Christmas concert. Here he is:
He was a professional and was settled for all appearances (twice on stage over two nights) and there were a lot of people who thought he must have been a doll! Big thanks to Katie and Ryan (I think) who looked after him well.
And here is Scott relaxing at home. He likes to have his arms out now, but still swaddled. Can't believe he is 3 months next week. Time is going much too fast.

Just some pondering

Over a couple of days, between feeds, nappy changes and the general motherhood-things that we do each day, I was thinking about my fabric stash and how it wasn't really meeting my needs.

My stash is mostly built on fabrics that I liked; were (mostly) on sale; and I had a plan for - mainly clothes for me and the kids. But with more and more invites to birthday parties and the like I am beginning to think that my stash needs a little more substance suitable for gifting.

Shopping is one activity that I don't really enjoy and I would much rather whip up a little handmade creation then spend the same amount of time and energy going to the shops and choosing a present.

So I need to remember to stock up on canvas for aprons (placemats, tea towels, bags), muslin and flannelette (wraps, jammie pants), cute prints (everything from hats, baby overalls, shirred tops and knitting needle/crochet hook/pencil rolls) plus everything else that I forgot and can't think of at the moment.

Candy cane stripes with a touch of reindeer...

I swear that I don't normally dress my children in ridiculous outfits just to take a photo but this hat was too cute and I wanted to get one with the other part of his Christmas outfit.
Isn't he a doll?
