are some bibs for bubs . . .
. . . still working on not-so-newborn-anymore gifts. My craft desk is a complete mess so I’ve laid them out on the floor instead – just need to hammer in the studs for the closures and they should be ready to go. Isn’t making bibs so soothing? They are probably one of the easiest (meaning least stressful) things to make for a baby and when you make a few at one sitting, it feels therapeutic to be going through the same simple movements one after another.
These are made from some of my favourite fabrics and backed with a nice, thick bath towel that I picked up on sale at Spotlight, hopefully making them quite absorbent. I noticed that Cam recently made a bib with the same print (hers in the black and mine in the grey up there) – it’s a really great print for boys and girls, but I seem to be using it a lot on boy-related gifts. I think I need more boy-friendly prints in my stash (yes, just another excuse to spend time looking in fabric stores and op shops!).
Hoping to get cracking on some softies this weekend. Still running, albeit very slowly since in my eagerness I have slightly injured my achilles tendon and some days, it hurts to walk (much less run). I’ve been spending my days at work with one shoe off, constantly performing foot stretches under the desk. I’m trying to take it very easy because next week is the first week in my 12-week training program for the 10km run in the Melbourne Marathon event in October (and I’m very excited about this!).
I am really overwhelmed (in a good way!) by all the lovely emails, comments and good wishes you have sent regarding the previous post. Thank you so much! Personally, it has been a tough week with a lot of other sucky stuff going on (the kinds of things that make you want to retreat to the mountains and become a hermit), so your words have been a saving grace. Thank you. Not much to report in terms of progress on getting the listing removed at this stage.
On a great note, Cherry (a member of the Adelaide Brown Owls) sent me this pic of Zing the Cat that she made from a project I have in Pip’s book. She is so cute! Love how it looks like she’s reaching out to give you a hug :-)
More creative spaces over here.
Hope you are all enjoying your week so far. So very, very glad it’s Friday tomorrow :-)
