Naps, Glorious Naps!

Well, my sweet baby is having a little nap, so I've got a moment or two to check in here. Although little G is starting to settle into a bit more of a routine, I'm still working on finding the time and organizational capacity to get creative again. Pulling out my Pfaff and getting things sorted to sew seems a bit adventurous right now, especially when baby G might decide to wake at any moment! It occurred to me, therefore, that I need to cultivate new, less equipment-heavy crafts, like crochet, knitting, and embroidery. Having tried (rather unsuccessfully) the former two, I've decided to leave that to my uber-talented mom for the moment and concentrate on embroidery, something I haven't really attempted before but have been contemplating for a while. Inspired by Sarah's gorgeous Russian dolls, therefore, I took the first step by ordering these fantastic books...

I'm thinking of adapting an idea I saw on Pinterest to create chic embroidery hoops decorated with images and and words to hang in little G's room. (Of course, I can't figure out how to link to the pin at the moment! Can anyone enlighten me? Here we go...)

We'll see how I get on. In the meantime though, little G calls!



  1. Yey for baby naps and routine! You'll be back into your sewing groove in no time! Jxo

  2. Oh that's a fab idea, and yes, a portable project that you pack and unpack very quickly when you have a spare 10 mins will be ideal to keep your creative juices flowing, even if it feels like a trickle for now. Can't wait to see what you decide to get up to for the hoops.

  3. I have seen those books and they look fab. I am sure that they will give you lots of inspiration. So pleased that you are getting some rest and settling into a routine. Di x
