Now that I've finished working I've found some free time to start sewing again. Apart from making things for my own bub, I've made some gifts for a friend's baby who will be born around the same time as mine. She's keeping the gender a secret so I've chosen brightly coloured fabrics for this nifty divided basket (pattern from Noodlehead) and reversible armhole bibs. Hope she likes them!
Things have been a little quiet on the blog front, and for good reason. I'm pleased to introduce you to baby Alec! I've been so lucky to have given birth to an amazing, healthy baby boy and am such a proud mum! He couldn't be anymore perfect :) The first week was pretty tricky getting used to taking care of such a tiny and precious creature, but we are settling into a happy little routine now. Lots more pictures of my beautiful little boy to come.

Did you spot the chevron baby quilt in my last post? Well my talented sister made it! It's the perfect size for the bassinet and also the pram, as well as just general snuggling. I also love her cross quilt in the same colour scheme pictured below. Check out some of her other quilts and projects on her blog sewburbia, and you can visit her madeit store to pick up your own (including the cross quilt!).
So I promised to fill you all in on what's been going on around here. Well, there's been some big changes! My husband and I sold our cosy little unit and upgraded to a much larger 70's brick house late last year....and just in time because we're expecting a new addition to our family any day now! I'm 39 weeks pregnant right now and can't believe that I'll be a mum very very soon! I've had a dream pregnancy really and am hoping the baby is just as easy (wishful thinking!).
We decided not to find out the baby's gender, so I'm getting really excited to find if it's a little he or she in there! Not knowing the gender hasn't really affected decorating the nursery though (since I'm not a huge fan of stereotypical boy and girl colours), and I've had ours ready for quite some time – gender neutral in yellow, grey and white – love those colours together! The artwork, bedding, bunting and storage boxes were all handmade by me and my sisters – more details on those soon.
