Rosa’s bedroom is the one room in our house with good light and a white floor so this is the spot where I take most of my pictures. Theo (2y) is usually happy playing with the dolls but must’ve heard his Dad on a video call next door (working) and snuck off while I was busy faffing. Next thing I know he’s shouting his head off in the next room and I’m totally busted for trying to do my own  thing when I should be stopping the 2 year old from crashing the conference call. Oops. πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ
But I got a nice photo.

With Black Friday heading our way I wanted to put out a friendly reminder to please shop local too!
I’m all for a bargain and if I needed a new toaster then I’d be the first in the queue to get my hands on a new one..
πŸŽ„
But I also feel strongly about supporting independent businesses, especially at this time of year.
If you love unique boutiques, personalised gifts and local coffee shops then please shop with them! πŸŽ„
Even if it’s β€˜just a card’, β€˜just a book’ or β€˜just a coffee’ if we all did this we could help guarantee the future of an independent high street for many years to come.

Morning! Me and the wee man have been up since 5.15am watching Russian YouTube videos about superheroes driving monster trucks (it’s a thing). Clocks go back on Sunday which I’ve heard is great as it means an extra hour in bed... but toddlers are oblivious so we’ll likely be wide awake at 4.15am. Anyone else got an early riser? He used to be 7-7am in the good old days!

In other news, this a hat I made.

Bibs! 
Two snaps at the back gives your three different sizes and means they’re  able to fit from newborn up to a year or more!
🌿
The bibs are organic printed soft jersey in my own design on the front and super soft absorbent bamboo on the back.
🌿
I did all my research about what fabric to back these with - Bamboo is the most sustainable fabric around because it grows so quickly, it’s also more absorbent than cotton and some say it also has anti-bacterial benefits.
🌿
Organic cotton is produced without chemicals so the land, cotton and the people who work the land are free from harmful nasties... 🌿
I also pre-wash all the fabrics in plant-based, low sulphate laundry liquid so there are no chemicals added by me and it’s gentle on delicate skin and the environment.
🌿
Fabric is designed by me, printed in Germany and all items are sewn by me.
🌿
I’ll be selling these at the #bangorxmasmarket or you can message me if you’d like one.

These mittens are the smallest thing I make and then @ohhellobeau  went and put them in a teeny wooden box and now they’re pretty flipping cute as well as tiny! 🌟
They’re 100% organic cotton with a soft, stretchy cuff and fully lined inside. They fit from newborn to 1yr or more (my own little one was still wearing his at 16months!) 🌟
If you’re interested in some mittens in a box then head over to @ohhellobeau and send her a direct message.

Happy Sunday!
I had some time today to put the binding on this quilt and I’m so pleased with it!
🌿
This is Theo’s room and it’s the first time I’ve taken the layers of blackout off his window for at least a year! So nice to see daylight.

Theo (turned 2 in July) will no longer allow me to put him to bed for a nap at lunch so I’m resorting to traipsing him around in the buggy til he falls asleep, which he always does... eventually. 
Today I was walking for over an hour. But I won. πŸ™Œ
I’ll be eating all the secret chocolate if you need me.

She was born earlier than expected so her mummy contacted me to request extra small hats and bibs, which of course was such a pleasure!

I’m working on a couple of new quilt designs - this one is nearly finished I just need to bind it - I quite like the idea of a black and white stripe or  just solid grey... any thoughts?!
