i decided at around 2am this morning whilst feeding the gorgeous puglet that i need to get some craft time into my days.
they are just flying by in a blur of activities, feeding, settling, driving, trampolining....:)
i have set myself a goal of doing a bit of sewing every day....even if it is just 5 minutes. and also set myself the goal of blogging once a week.
I think otherwise it will all get away from me and it will be the end of the year before i know it!

so! my craft achievements from this week

i was lucky enough to win a Homespun competition and got a 'how to make a stupid sock creature' kit!  so this is where i am up to with the little fella - he will go out as a Toy Society drop once he is finished

and this is the two buck block BOM from Kornacraft for this year - i chose the pink theme with the idea to make it into a quilt for puglet once i have finished them - i love the fabric!!

and i was lucky enough to go out to Quiltaholics yesterday and bought a jelly roll and some blue Christmas fabric (which is hard to come by!)

and for good measure, a cute shot of the little human loving his puglet sister

much love and happy crafting!

pugs and kisses

p.s. don't forget to enter the competition if you haven't yet - closes monday 27th of june!!!

Puglet was born by c-section on the 26th of may and weighed 7 lb 1oz and was 48 cm long
she is doing very well at home - feeding great, and settling in between, which is just lovely
the little human adores puglet with a capital A - they are very cute together

this is the puglet having her first bath in the hospital - she loved it

and this is her with her gorgeous presents from Fiona - a beautiful hand stitched kokeshi stuffie and some handmade breast pads for me - THANK YOU!

much love, pugs and kisses
