The upside of having sick kids (if indeed there is one)….

Despite having two sick boys, yesterday afternoon was very fruitful as they both slept for a solid three and half hours!  This was especially good as Cadel has recently been dropping his afternoon nap.

I got heaps of stuff done…

laundry, washing up

And now for the fun stuff.

I finished this little guy, who once stuffed will be heading off to someone special.

I still haven’t decided what they should be called.  Thanks for all your suggestions.

I finished the pink hippo.

And then thought I’d try a selvege pincushion which I finished last night.

I am truly in love with it, though don’t look too closely as its not perfect.  I see more of these being made…

I have a massive weekend planned sewing and stuffing, and opening a made it shop.  Hope all of you have a great weekend too.


Ps. Thanks for all your well wishes for the boys.  Cadel seems alot better today, but Hamish is sicker, hopefully he’ll be better soon.

  1. Things are definately more productive around here when the kids are sick too-as awful as that sounds! LOVE the softie-fabulous fabric!

  2. Oooh I was so pleased that you commented on my blog, I’ve been reading yours for a little while now and always find it really inspiring! The dolls are I made weren’t from Wee Wonderfuls (although I love that site). It was something like happyhappy … Oh it’s written on the flipping pattern if ever I could find it!. Anyway i just thought I’d let you know I’m adding you to my sidebar because you have a lovely blog!

    Amy 🙂
