PJ's finished

I finally got around to putting the applique on the singlet tops, so here is the complete outfit, sorry for the dodgy photo but Connor doesn't stand still for photos anymore, he launches himself at the camera everytime the flash pops up.
And I just thought I'd share this very cute photo. Connor was being all lovey towards Elizabeth and giving her lots of kisses and cuddles.

Christmas Swap Received

After staring at my swap parcel for 4 days I was finally allowed to open it yesterday, I received oodles of lovelyness from the wonderful Corrie.
Included in my parcel was:

All these beautiful fabrics, spotty, fairy tales, xmas and some monkey (which will become appliques on tops or pants for my own little monkey I think) and an iron on bear motif.
Plus some yummy chocolates which I have kept hidden from DH and the kids (though Izy did discover them while I was taking this pic and decided to crawl up for a closer look)
Some gorgeous little quilted coasters.
And all these beautiful little novelty buttons (destined for lots of Izy's dresses)
Thank you Corrie, I love it all.

My trainer cancelled yesterday due to illness so I was unexpectedly blessed with extra time for sewing yesterday on my Connor free day.

So I finally managed to whip up 3 pairs of PJ shorts for Connor, I bought this material a couple of weeks ago but couldn't find a pattern I liked, I settled on Simplicity pattern 4983 and am very happy with the result, I just have to pick up some singlets or little tshirts to applique for the tops now.
