here is the fabric i got from the lovely lady on berwick market. i'm going to make a patchwork bath mat with this and an old white towel, probably this week!
this is a sweet little antique baby vest from france. it's incredibly soft with 2 tiny buttons. i couldn't resist!
this is my big stack of washable baby wipes. i've also made some towelling ones, so it will soon be a question of finding which ones suit me and baby best, before i make any more...if i need them!
and i got given a pile of new white bibs which i have been embroidering...
photos of those are a bit dark as its so overcast today....grey and cold. stay indoors day with stitching and soup!

*This post is very heavy on images so maybe make a cuppa while it loads!*
Back at home and I am flitting between my studio and home. Finishing off the archive book project, thinking of ideas for the next 3 books I need to make for another project, piecing together bits of cloth when I can, thinking about what to make next for the shop, tea staining things and trying to think what I can make for William when he arrives, other than felt booties of course!
Talk soon sis.
So Wales was great, had a nice time. Went to the National Museum of Welsh Life, went down Big Pit, hiked up Skirrid Fawr, a little mountain, and bought lots of tea to take home!

So my sister Jo has got herself a new blog address; I will update the sidebar asap. She was saying today on her blog that she wanted some blue windmill fabric to make baby trousers, so I went hunting online:
And some non windmill fabric:
Anyway, I will keep looking.
