Pom poms and pretty things

I don't want this little guy to bored shitless while he is in his bassinet, so I've been making 'interesting' things for him to look at. Today I made a little pom pom mobile with some tapestry wool and a wooden frame from a cross-stitch hoop. 

It's very pretty and 'dangles' very nicely. You can see the lovely liner I made in the background ... if you have a Rozibaby bassinet I sell them over here on Made It.

The new fabric that arrived in the mail ... ready to sew into new liners!

A few little gifts I made to send to friends.

Sooooooo over it

38 and a bit weeks and I am so over this being up the duff gig. Really, those women who say how much they love being pregnant ... WTF? I can't wait to sleep on my stomach again and roll over in an unhindered and non-walrus-like manner. This is nature's way of getting women psychologically ready to march defiantly toward the inevitable god-awfulness of giving birth - we're just so fucking over by now we don't care. 

I also really want a drink ... you have no idea how good a cold glass of save blanc looks right now. I did get a free scone today though, not quite a glass of vino but it was good. We went to the UNE Booloominbah open day to have a look at the beautiful old building. I love walking around university campuses - it always make me feel better that there are people pursuing education and learning. Sometimes you need your faith in humanity restored after reading too many f*wit Facebook posts about how drinking four glasses of water first thing in the morning for 180 days will cure cancer. CURE cancer. OMFG. Anyhoo, here are some pretty pictures of the amazing old building.

More sewing ... lots of sitting

I can't be arsed to get out the house much at the moment ... mostly as we live at the top of a hill and walking back up it is excruciating at the moment. So I spend my day sewing, eating things straight from the fridge, looking in the cupboard for something more exciting than Vita Wheats and talking to the dog (who really needs a bath). Luckily my sewing room is really lovely to sit in.

Newest addition to my Rozibaby bassinet liners ... they're listed in my Etsy shop. 
Another new liner ...

The weekend before last we took one last trip to the beach (just the two of us) ... kind of like a baby moon, but not as wanky! We stayed in a really cool beach tent - glamping - it's the only kind of camping I will do. We walked up Mutton Bird Island, had a fancy dinner, slept in and went swimming at Sawtell. It was so nice, I really neat to go back, I miss the salty air and the humidity! 

Once we got back, he went back to work and I got back to sewing (poor me!) I have made heaps of the Rozibaby liners to put on Etsy and Made It - I really need to make some more just for me.

A little grey and blue liner

Another liner! Once you've done something a few times you get on a real roll and it's pretty easy to churn a heap out. I've so got these down pat now. I'm tempted to go buy some more pretty fabrics.

The first few Rozibaby bassinet liners are ready to go and listed in my Etsy shop. It's hard to find a really good spot to take great photos in this house ... I'll keep working on it.

bassinet liners from the stash

I have so much fabric in my stash I really need to make things with it before I go buying more. So I've been making little fitted sheets and baby stuff for our imminent arrival (due very soon!) - now that I've got the pattern and technique sorted, I've been making 'good ones' to sell on Etsy and Made It. Our kid will have to make do with all the prototypes - pretty sure he won't be inspecting the stitching though.

My lovely mum bought us a Rozibaby pram - it's like the the nice imported car I never had (I currently drive a ute). It's quite lovely, and I don't want to ruin the mattress straight up so I made a liner with some of my Westwood Acres and Marimekko fabric.

It turned out to be very cute and looks great in the bassinet. I'll list a few that I've made this week.
