Happy Little Cloud Baby Toy

Thank you all SO much for the wonderfully kind comments you left for me and Simon following my last post - they were HUGELY appreciated!

Now, I hope that you weren't just kidding (or just being kind) when so many of you said you were looking forward to seeing lots of baby-related craft projects popping up here.  If you were, sorry, because.....

..... I wanted to do a quick show-and-tell of the very first little thing I made for our Little One.

I got the idea for it from Pinterest (where else!?!).  I have to admit that I've been spending WAY too many hours hanging out there lately.  Does anyone know if there's a 'Pinterest-aholics Anonymous' group out there anywhere, by the way???  You know - just in case!!!

It's a little smiley, happy (and very random) could toy.....


I'm very happy with how he turned out.  He makes me smile, with his cheerful face and RAINBOW COLOURS!

If you know a little person who might like a cute cloud toy (or if you want to secretly make one just for yourself), you can find the tutorial I used here.

Until next time.....

I'm back..... with an announcement to make!!!

Hello, dear blogging friends!  I hope you all had lovely Christmasses and fun-filled New Year's Eves!!!  I've missed you all - and apologise for my long absence from the blogging world (my last post was on Christmas Eve - and I've been a truly terrible blog-visitor too).  

I don't really have a good excuse for not being around for the last month and a half - except that I've had some news that I've been desperately wanting to share with you, but have had to bide my time over.  Anyway, I think that now's the right time.  So here goes.....

No, it's not that I ate way too many mince pies and turkey sandwiches over Christmas (though I did).....


To say that we're excited is an understatement.   We've been waiting for this for a long time.  

Some of you may recall that I was in hospital for a couple of weeks last December.  At the time, I didn't want to say why, but now I feel I can.  I'd had an ectopic pregnancy.  It was a pretty horrible experience!  Then we spent a year trying again, unsuccessfully, and having various tests to see what the problem might be.  And then, at the beginning of November, I was shocked/surprised to see two lines show up on my monthly (desperate) home pregnancy test!

After that, we had a couple of months of scares and trips to see the doctor.  I think, because of what's gone on before, I've been ridiculously worried about every little thing!

But, now that everything seems to be going well and I'm entering my 20th week, we feel ready to share our news with the rest of the world!  

Now I've shared my big announcement with you and got that off my chest, I hope I'll be able to get on with my regular, crafty blogging (and with my blog-visiting too).  Of course, I've already started making a few baby-related bits and bobs (I couldn't wait).  So I'll be back soon, to show you what I've been working on.....

Hugs to you all.....
