Stevie Photos

See my last post where I talked about my Auntie Di who kindly knitted those sea creatures for me? Well, creativity runs in the family, as her daughter, my cousin Kez took some family photos for us. She usually takes band photos, and she said she didn't have much practice taking family shots like these, but I reckon she did a pretty good job!

This was still when Stevie was just home from the hospital... she has grown a little bit now. Almost two months old already! But I still wanted to show them here.

Here she is sleeping in her cot...


...and again... ooohhhhh :)


Lovey times...


Sweetie pie...


Big hands, little hands...


Us as proud parents...


Daddy & daughter...


And finally, the whole clan...


So there you go. I'll have to take some more recent shots soon.

I am finding this Mum gig a little hard at the moment, which is why I haven't been blogging (or creating) much. She has really been unsettled and crying lots so when I do get spare time I try to sleep, but really, I'm usually cleaning or washing.

Good news is... the specialist thinks Stevie's hips feel good so probably most likely only another 5 weeks in the harness! We are looking forward to the day that comes off :)

See ya soon... I can hear she is waking up...

Crafting Time- Finally!


Have been managing to find some time for crafting, between the nappy changes and feeding. This is a mobile that my Auntie Di knitted the creatures for, and I turned it into a mobile for above Stevie's change table. She likes to look at this because it's got nice bright colours and contrast.
The patterns were from hansigurumi's etsy shop. There are some more awesome patterns there that I'd love such as these spiders that really do gross me out and make my skin crawl, but would be a perfect gift for my Mum, who I think is slightly evil as she loves spiders and horror movies. Check out the fangs on them! Urgh! I can't believe how out of control my spider fear is if I get goosebumps from knitted softie ones!
So I kinda took the idea of making the mobile up from this Blabla mobile. I liked the look of how the knitted theme was continued in the make up of the whole mobile.



The last photo is a works-in-progress shot of some purses that I have started making that will be eventually for sale in one of the places that you can find my stuff. Oh yeah, and one of these places, Georgie Love has a fantastical new website. It looks great, have a look and see so for yourself :)

Coming soon: more Stevie photos, a published crafty book announcement, and a new print for the reopening of my etsy shop.
