My first mothers day.

I know it hasn't even happened yet but I've already got my present and I LOVE it. A friend of mine Kim Field made it for me. It is beautiful and best part of all is I can get new bands made if ever I feel like a bit of a change. I'm so thrilled.

But I can't go without mentioning my wonderful hubby who bought it for me. I don't think it would ever be possible for me to say he doesn't spoil me more then I deserve.

A stitch in the right direction.

So aside from the pin cushions which will hopefully look something like this...(according to the pattern anyway)

I've started a cross stitch ^_^ my mum actually found it, but I claimed it because it was so cute.

This is all I've done so far...even though I've had it since Easter. I can admit I get easily distracted, but I will have it done before she is born.


So I've been trying to get into the 'girly' spirit in preparation for our baby girl...and I've been having some trouble. Mainly because there is so much cool boy stuff and because all of the girl stuff is WAY to girly. BUT I've come up with a bit of a solution. I found this cute little brown bear at the op-shop and decided to give it a makeover to make it a little more girly.

This is the result...

A little brown bear with a pink bow and a pink button ^_^ my kind of girly.

I also got at new pattern in the mail today for some pin cushions that I am going to make as toys. I will keep you updated on the progress and put some pictures up as soon as I have them ^_^
