I’m still here…

I am so bad at updating my blog, I know I know!  I’ve been working on making something a bit special though, which I can’t share with you all yet as it’s not quite finished!  Hopefully I can show you in the next couple of weeks.

I am still sewing, and yesterday added these cute little zippy pouches to my shop:

I hope to list a new crayon roll today, made with some gorgeous aeroplane fabric & red gingham.  I have a whole notebook full of ideas to work through so watch out for some more products coming soon!  This week I plan on making a few of my ‘alternative’ gingerbread men that were so popular on my stall last Christmas – I hope my shop customers love them just as much (they usually have little ribbon loops on their head for hanging on the tree – it seems I only took a picture of the one I forgot to put the ribbon on!):

I really must get a move on with Christmas stock and presents – why does time seem to go so quickly in the run up to December?!

Dylan started school last Thursday and is absolutely loving it, he’s grown up so much even since then.  When his class is called to go in each morning he runs up the steps shouting ‘see ya later Mum!’ and is always the first one in – most of the other children are clinging to their parents but Dylan seems to have so much confidence – I am very proud of him.  He also had his first swimming lesson yesterday afternoon, he did so well and yet again his confidence shone through as he listened to what he was being asked to do and got on with it with an adorable look of sheer concentration on his face!

Daisy started back at preschool yesterday, she has been out of nappies for the past few weeks but I was worried that she wouldn’t ask to go for a wee at school.  I was so happy when I picked her up and she was wearing the same trousers!!  Apparently she had asked to go with no problems – another proud Mummy moment!  When I collected her she handed me some pictures she’d drawn, saying proudly ‘look Mummy, I drew the London Eye for you!’ – it was so lovely, a big green circle with a smiley face next to it.  We went on the London Eye last week and clearly she loved it!  She will be three on Thursday, the time seems to have gone in the blink of an eye :’( Daisy has asked for a scooter like Dylan’s for her birthday, fingers crossed it gets here in time!  I will be spending tomorrow making her cake, she’s requested a pink & sparkly one!

I should really get back to some housework and sewing now, I promise I wont leave it so long next time!  I have a lot of plans for what to include on my blog, but these will take some time – please check back to see what I’ve been up to :)
