Sorry I havnt been around much....

.......the end of the school holidays is here, horray! So hopefully in the next few weeks ill be around a bit more. Thing 1 starts back tomorrow but thing 2 doesnt start back full time until the end of september so ive got alot of pratting about at induction mornings on and off for the next two weeks which I think is just silly, thing 2 wants to get straight back in to it. Meanwhile thing 3 is getting massive, here is a pic of me taken 2 weeks ago when I was 36 weeks.....see massive!

We went for a scan to check that my pesky placenta had moved up enough for me to have a normal birth and it has, whilst we where there the lovely sonographer took some measurements so that she could estimate the birth weight and we are having another whopper! The baby is approximatly 7ish lbs so by the time im 40 weeks it will be approx 9lbs or over. Im not surprised as thing 1 was 9lb 8oz and thing 2 was 9lb 1oz I was just hoping I may have a smaller one this time. Oh well. Anyway with this being my 3rd and it being another boy (no lovely homemade frilly dresses this time) I havnt had alot of inspiration for making anything. I made the cowboy taggie and that was it. Well at the weekend I was browsing pinterest (i think I was browsing for hours) and I came across some lovely burp cloths so I had a go at making my own.

What do you think? I love that little moustache logo I know its silly but boys things are so boring.

I also made 2 bandana bibs, I love these too they look like cowboys neckties. I made 2 sizes as I just winged it and made it up as I went along.

I know they are not perfect but thats the beauty of handmade and no other little boy in the world will have the same bib and burp cloth. Hubby laughed at them when I showed him, he thinks they are discusting. Unfortunatly hubby is very much pitched in the pale blue camp when it comes to baby things........boringgggggggg! :)

What have you guys been up to recently? I will check out your blogs soon and leave lots of lovely comments, I promise.

Take care

  1. cor.. massive indeed! The bits you have been making look great, much better than boring pale blue!

  3. Awww I love these!!! They are unique and FABULOUS! I'd love to see a piccie of Baby wearing his bandanna when he arrives!!! I think are are brilliant and show real personality.....much nicer than a boring old pale blue one form Mothercare! Not long now :)

  4. Mustaches all the way I say - ditch boring pale blue! Nice one. Circus themed things are good and colourful too - if that's any help. x

  5. I agree! Boy's stuff is usually very predictable- tractors, diggers, blue etc, so how ace to have made something original.
    I reckon you should be selling these!
    Good luck with number 3- you look gorgeous.
