I just thought i'd show you some handmade goodies made and purchased for the little one's nursery. Let me first of all introduce you to The Twits! These cheeky little owl cushions were designed and handmade by Geraldine, my super talented mother! You can find her on Flickr. I have a feeling I'm the daydreamer twit in pink polkadots with the rather sleepy expression! Aren't they fabulous???
Next up we have some funky toadstools made by my bud Sarah from www.redpossum.etsy.com and the cute froggie amigurmi hat/handpuppet is by the talented Ying from www.Lannying.etsy.com - i also purchased matching froggie bootees and they are the cutest little things i've ever seen and so so well made! By now you'll probably notice a bit of a woodland theme goin' on here? ;)
I'll be needing a comfy and cosy zone for me & baba to nurse and what could be nicer than some homemade cushions in owl and peace prints. This trio were made by the lovely Johanne of www.matoloki.com! The daisy garland above the bed is by me...
So whats Tanya up to??.... well I'm obviously busy creating the baby but i'm working on a leaf chandalier style mobile - I'm looking out for a huge embroidery hoop at at least 10" preferably more so any shop/website suggestions are welcome! I'm also creating a funky patchwork to hang on the wall. Please bear in mind that I've never made a quilt in my life! I should have really started out with squares but i went for retro hexagons instead. Here's a little glimpse of what i've been up to;
I've still got a long, long way to go and only 8.5 weeks before baba is here! hopefully everything will just fall into place? ah we'll see... its an adventure of a lifetime and I'm just going to go with it! ;D
