from new babies & beautiful felt to hand stitching & toilet humour for boys

Greetings all,
So what do you get a second time round mummy for her new baby - something for her of course!!  I did the cute gifts for her big girl & new baby boy, but wanted to focus on mummy, the hero of the family.  Considering Rosalind of Grace Designs can do the MOST beautiful things with felt & her stock is flying out the door at Shop Handmade, i ordered the best felt i could find (from Joggles USA) & was so excited to bundle up her lot as a bouquet.  She loved!!
 
A lovely repeat customer/ gal pal from school ordered yet another baby blanket for yet another niece/ nephew.  This is for Amelie, who has big brothers, & a mother who has been overwhelmed with PINK, so Kate requested something girlie but not pink . . . so white Babushka polar fleece it is, with a little bit of pink on the applique A & red Tshirt jersery to pull it all together.  I love hand stitching the edges, they can be washed & tossed in the dryer, never fail, pull or mis-shape.  Must do more . . . & yes, i do have the pink Babushka polar fleece too, all from Retro Mummy, i bought her bolts as she wasn't sure what to do with it.  I had a vision . . .
Ever have those days wandering your house calling a child's name??  Well this was my son, pretending to be asleep & apparently couldn't hear me??!!  All foiled by his giggles & i thought i was pretty hilarious!!
Have a lovely day, i have 3 girls at the dentist, this is how i spend my day off from Shop Handmade . . . love Posie

I hide in the toilet sometimes and don't answer when people call me. There and in the pantry. Sometimes a Mum needs a moment to herself!!
What a gorgeous gift that felt is. I bet it's the best gift she received. How lovely of you to think of something just for the Mum.
