Here are my picks for the week, I have to say it was very hard tonarrow it down to just four...
1. Matryoshka Softie...U pick colors...Custom from SewSewSuckurToe’s Shop (I was lucky enough to get a set of of these for Mother's Day this year to add to my Matryoshka collection)
2. Juniper from ProjectGrabBag’s Shop (I would LOVE one of these dolls for myself and that scooter fabric is fantastic!)
3. Red Daisy Sling Bag from Little Mary Moo's Shop (I am very tempted to buy this bag, although if you read my previous post you would know how bad I have already been lately, and with no Birthday, anniversary or anything in sight I may just have to hint at an early Christmas present ;)
4. Little Lion Costume Chunky Earflap Beanie from Babaialainn's Shop (I just had to add this one as it made me smile, I can just imagine a group of little boys all going ROAR!, plus they have a great range of super cute beanies for winter)
Enjoy, Bel x

My Shadow today is my gorgeous little man playing with his bead maze in our lounge room, we have awesome big triangular windows and the shadows are just devine.
Have a great weekend everyone and a great week

Now that Saxon is getting bigger (and LOVES being outside) we have been thinking of making him a space outside (away from the dogs or namely the poo :( ) that can be his own. I wanted to make something that would not only keep him interested but also make him want to go outside and play. We are getting him a swing set for Christmas but I also wanted something that he could interact with on his own (being an only child) so we have fenced off one side of the house and this is going to be 'his area'. To brighten the space up I wanted to make some interactive boards to go on the fence. So on the weekend we started on board number 1 which has a car theme. It still has a far bit of work to be down on it, but I thought I would share a picture of what we have done so far.... I love this one of Sax discovering 'himself' looking back from the car headlights :)

For the past 5mths now my son has been waking around 5 to 6 times a night (he is not newborn - 20mths) and on the weekend it all came to a head. He has suffered from recurrent ear infections and we saw a specialist who diagnosed glue ear in both of his ears poor baby, so we went into the hospital last week for surgery to have grommets inserted... I think that after so long without sleeping I had somewhere in my mind pinned all my hopes of sleep on 2 tiny little plastic tubes. So the surgery was a success.. until the next morning when one of the grommets decided to explode out of his ear :-( oh the misery.
So after having the worst day of my life yesterday (sorry DH this conincided with Father's Day) I have tracked down a paediatric nurse consultant or I am hoping "baby whisperer" who is going to visit me on Friday with all the answers.
God I hope she has the answers....
To have time to sew, clean, cook, think again would be great (hmm maybe not in that order)

Today's project is to tidy up my desk and make Sax a little hanger/organiser for our new car. Yep in all the madness this week we have sold our car and downsized to something a bit smaller and much to mine and Sax's horror there are no back pockets in the seats for his car toy stash, my DH thinks I am mad, but as I tried to explain to him last night it was great to be able to stuff the collection of 'car' toys including Teddy who has come on every car trip since Sax came home into that little pocket and everything was tidy. SO I am aiming to make a bigger slightly different version of the hairclip holders© with elastic and bigger pockets then loops to go around the headrest in this great little car fabric found at Spotlight yesterday (don't even get me started on that one, I have banned myself for life!)
Well that's enough banter from me for one day, I am off to enjoy a cuppa and research car insurance while our house is still quiet and get onto some of that sewing....

You can purchase them from our ETSY store here
and here is a pic to give you an idea of what I am talking about...
My mum AKA 'Supper Nanny Anne' arrives tomorrow night so I am hoping to have my sewing machine smoking over the next few weeks and have another 10 fabric choices available plus about a million (ok about a dozen) other half finished or need to be started projects finished over the next month. So watch this space! (I have always wanted to say that ;)
