So it seems only apt that while I am busy helping my loved ones to relocate their home, I have a design of a country home that I would like to share with you! It is the first of my pattern releases, so please let me know if you like the layout of my instructions or if you think there are any improvements I could make. Thank you! :-)
I designed and made this project for my swap partner Lizzie. You can read about it on Lizzie's blog, or on my last post. :-)
Other than house-moving and writing instructions for patterns, I also helped to make a baby this weekend! I am not being rude - HONEST! LOL...I mean this in the most literal sense! :-) Please let me introduce you to my first (for want of a better word)
He's not of the human variety - thank goodness - I think I would have twins myself if he was!! :-)
My son named him Joefrey Jibba Jabba Stewart, and he weighs in at Four kilos!! As you may have guessed (I'm mad? No not that, but you might be right there as well!) my son and the rest of his classmates are learning about the responsibilities of raising children, this term. They each had to make a baby and will need to care for it at school, never leaving it unattended etc.
Joefrey is constructed using a plastic milk carton filled with sand, and once 'taped up' (oops, I mean once his umbilical cord was tied) we covered him in bubble wrap, then I made a calico head on which my son drew a face. I think he did a pretty good job!
Ah well, hopefully the new arrival should sleep well tonight... he is related to The Sandman, after all!
I hope you all have a great week and I look forward to catching up again once my head emerges from above all the boxes I'm going to be shifting around this week!
Hugs! Vikki xx
