Not much crafting being done. I've been painting the hall instead. Did customise an old top of mine to make it into a breastfeeding top. Have to try it out. We're going on a family shopping day on Monday so I might try it out then in public.
I've also being customising a dress that I bought in Dunnes Stores. Its just a simple blue dress that I'm going to wear to the various weddings this summer. Have put some lace along the end and will pick up some ribbon or flowers or something to make it more 'me'.
Here's a picture of Smem when she was playing with her dad yesterday.
Inspired by Burdastyle.com, I started to make a doll last night for Smem. Worked out a pattern for the body last night. Had to try the legs and arms twice as I found it too hard to turn the first set inside out. She doesn't look too bad! Think she will be called Molly. Started making a dress for her today so that involved more pattern making.
I made another mat to send to Irene for baby Kate. Actually made this one to a decent size so sent it off in the post last week. It's called 'Cute As A Button'. I think it works quite well and it will definitely be one that I make again.
Went to Wexfored with Emily last week on Monday with my mother and came back on the train on Wednesday. All went well. My goddaughter came to visit - little Rhianna. Below is a picture of her with our cat at home, Mush. She absolutely loves him but he doesn't feel quite the same about her! And here's a picture of my sister, Katie, with Emily in the kitchen. As usual I forgot to take many photos so I only have a few from the kitchen.
And finally, the christening day. It went really well. There were loads of people and Emily was good as gold. She was passed from person to person all afternoon and never gave out so we were really proud of her. Again forgot to take any photos, just one of her with my brother, Eoin. He took loads of photos though and has some of her in the infamous dress so will post that when I get copies from him.
Therefore, I have started another mat to send to Irene. It's got felt buttons appliqued onto calico squares and big blocks of colour between. It's quite nice to far. I have cut out all the pieces and figured out how I am going to arrange them so I just need to sew them altogether now. Shouldn't take too long.
