a labour of love

I don't think anyone can deny that a carefully planned and lovingly handmade gift is the best kind of gift. There is something so special about knowing that somebody spent a lot of time making something especially for you. While I was pregnant with my little Dollop, and then with Splodge, I made patchwork quilts. I wanted my babies to have something special, made by mummy, that marked a special point in time. And I love their quilts so much... because they are full of memories of eagerly anticipating their arrivals, and then of wrapping them up in them for the first time.

him and her {week forty}

he just seems so grown up of late
with the sensible little things he comes out with,
but he cannot wait to be a big brother all over again
and is counting down the days until his baby sister arrives.

she just loves telling us what she gets up to at preschool each day,
is absolutely adoring both her dancing lessons each week,
and is just about the cuddliest, cutest, funniest little lady on the planet
who is snuggling like a baby one minute and trying to rule the roost the next.
