ribbons & bows

With the littles ones hair starting to get a bit wild, some much needed taming was in order.

Here's a couple of little numbers I whipped up to help the taming process along.

something I learnt today

While doing the morning 'bloggy' thing I came across this website that is full of blogging stats. It also has some very interesting facts and figures about the who, what and why of blogging. I have a fascination with numbers so I found it a very worthwhile read.

I found out that my blog is ranked 890,116 out of 113 million blogs. There's a lot of blogs out there!

A much anticipated fabric parcel arrived from 'Sew, Mama, Sew' this morning.

Lovely fabrics by Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner and Joel Dewberry.

Not sure what they're to be used for yet.

tangled mess

Trying very hard not to laugh, while trying to discipline is challenging.

Little B found a roll of cotton on the spare sewing machine, 'yoinked' it off and proceeded to wrap herself up in it. It was totally hilarious! What can you do really....?

on my desk...

I thought I might try my hand at something new and fun- cute little hair clippies for my little B.

My order of various types of clips and bright ribbons arrived this morning, so I cant wait to get started. Now, if only I had a glue gun....*hmmm* Maybe I should have thought about that one earlier. Well, I best leave this post then and toddle off to go get one.
