Return to scheduled programming...

You will be forgiven for thinking that I may have dropped off the face off the earth! Since my last blog post (July 2015), I've actually been pretty busy making some other things and there's been a lot of other happenings in my life. 

Firstly, we bought our first home and moved in August. We needed to do some basic renovation work as soon as we moved in, and as a lot of my crafty projects were packed away, I didn't have a lot of time to get things out for creating. I also finished a lot of things mid-year and didn't have anything new I wanted to be working on either. 

I've also been pretty busy making something extra special-- a new human being! If you follow me on Instagram, this isn't "new" news, but in case you're the rare reader who just follows my blog, now you know! 

Being pregnant has more or less sucked all the creative mojo out of me! It's pretty hard work creating a baby so that's understandable! I've made a couple of pairs of booties for friends but that's about it. With the arrival of our baby now only weeks away, I have been making a few things which hopefully I can get finished and post about here. 

I did make a pair of booties for a special friend overseas, so I thought I would share them here. They also travelled with a teddy bear who is in very familiar Kiwi attire-- an All Blacks (our national world champion Rugby team). Not only is the teddy very cute, but he also plays the Haka! (google it), you can watch him here:

The accompanying boots fit the bear, but they are actually for the baby they were delivered to! A very simple design which I think I will have to make again. Anyway, now that I am a little more settled, I'm looking forward to a bit more creating and sharing here again. 


  1. I believe creative mojo will return as soon as you deliver a baby! therefore, I wish you good luck with the family and your future child!

    1. Thanks for your comments! I'm taking a break for awhile as it's a little tricky finding time to make things with a newborn baby. Once my older son goes to school I'll be back into things! Thanks so much for your comment :-)
