Goodbye 2011

2011 brought an amazing little person into our lives. She is everything I dreamed of and so much more.

This year has also challenged many family and friends with the floods and health issues. I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year!

Nappy stash so far

This is baby’s stash of cloth nappies. I had plans to sew a lot of the nappies but I have been focused on programming and have discovered that it is harder to sew with a belly.

I’m missing a couple of green kids, some itti boosters and some of the nappies I made for my godson. I’m sure they are somewhere safe buried in my fabric collection that is getting a bit out of hand. I really need to start sewing again!

Update:
The demo man badge had actually been updated… The newer one was a bigger challenge to embroiderer, but here is my initial design attempt:

Special present for a new little man

Two weekends ago, I made this tiny safety jacket for a friend’s new baby.

There is a story that goes with it, but it is staying offline for privacy reasons.
