Update: Squiggle is here!

hi guys.

My little geek arrived last weekend, on Saturday the 6th August.
He was 2 weeks late and weighed 8lbs 9oz, he's 8 days old today :-) and we're both doing well. My labour only lasted about 4 1/2 hours and I managed on gas and air. I've got a lot to be grateful for... he's very healthy and sleeping well (when he's full!)

I won't be using his name on the blog, just because, you now, the internet lasts forever. I'll still be calling him Squiggle :-)

Normal programming will resume shortly, I haven't hung up my crafting hat yet :-) I've got at least 3 projects in the pipeline which I'll get to as soon as I can get this sleepy baby off my tummy.

love to you all!!

Breastfeeding Pillow - Tutorial

(psst, don't forget to enter my AWESOME giveaway)

 it's essentially a U  shaped bean bag... I got a 1.5 cubic foot Beanbag top-up bag for £3.50 at QD (which is similar to Wilkinson's if you don't have one near you) google it and the Internet will furnish you with suppliers, but because it's a bulky thing it's better to look in craft shops/furniture shops to see if you can pick it up locally and avoid the P+P charges

Carboot sale stuff...

(psst, don't forget to enter my AWESOME giveaway)

yup... we did it again! (maybe this could be a regular feature... except that you're never guaranteed to get awesome stuff at a carboot sale, I just happen to have been lucky the last few weeks....

There were only 2 things though really, but it's the PRICE that makes them particularly awesome :-) and their upcycleability (yup, that's a 'thing')
