As promised

some recent craft action - first up is a recent swap I was a part of on Nappy Addicts, this was only half of it - I also did a smaller bag for her daughter. I was pretty happy with how this turned out and the recipient was happy to so even better

Nappies I have made lately ( no boosters in them yet, my overlocker and I are not seeing eye to eye at the moment). 2 different patterns here, the first 2 are a large and a small side snap Darling Diaper pattern and the 3rd is a hippy hippy snap pattern also in large. I can't decide which pattern I prefer I think there are pros and cons to each, so I will probably continue to make a mixture of both for the boys. Not sure who the small is for, the embroidery is not perfect and I was going to gift it to someone but not sure now.
And lastly some of the book/diary covers made for christmas gifts. i think almost everyone I know got one of these including family, work friends and teachers. I love them and think they make a great gift.

New discoveries

firstly these were taken just before Christmas - yes I am waaaay behind in my blogging!!!!!

Macallum has been making a lot of new discoveries lately - he escapes to the backyard at every opportunity - which happens to be a lot because the older children are apparently incapable of shutting a door. He is not however a big fan of the practically dead grass ( although thanks to the recent rain is it lovely and green again) and tries to keep his knees off the aforementioned grass - it is a very amusing sight to see,
He does love to try and catch the chickens too which seems to be hereditary in this family - i feel for the poor chickens and often wonder how we ever get any eggs when they seem to spend their days running from 2 little terrors ( Tanner and Hudson) who like to "pat" them
. The chickens don't seem to be bothered by Macallums attempts at catching them though lol.

I think a new years resolution should be more regular blogging especially with the things i have been making lately - although some are secrets due to being swaps and are not ready to be revealed just yet.
