Welcome to the family Alex John Wetherall! As you can see we had a new addition to the extended family, I think he is my DH 2nd cousin but I may be wrong. (someone will correct me I am sure if I am) I used the babygros / onsies from New Arrival and the letters are form HM (I think).
This last item is a real shocker to all of my family ! I have ALWAYS said I can't and I won't sew ! Well, my Mum came to visit ( another Florence Nightingale in my time of need) and for some reason I got a real urge to learn to sew! I don't know who was more surprised, My Mum, Me or John? We took a little trip to Walmart where I bought half and got gifted half (early b'day) the most basic sewing machine and some fabric. Once home I took my 1st lesson as a grown up and made this makeup bag, yes I actually made this ! I have already gone on and made another one the same, but Gator fabric and once Mum had gone home I followed her instructions and made myself a bag, A real over the shoulder bag. I am very happy to have started doing some sewing, BUT it will never take over my love of paper crafts and please don't ask me to hand sew, unless you want to hear me ********
Well having finally got around to writing again, I guess I need to get this posted.
Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope to be back much sooner this time.
