mini quilt (ish)

damn i love having wednesdays off work. so damn tired. i slept in till 10.30, then did 'stuff' until 4.30, napped for 2hrs, had dinner, layed on the couch internetting (feeding my nappy making addiction) and i'm off to bed in a couple of mins. this playing 'host' to a baby sure is draining! so what did i do all day? cleaned, snacked, washed clothes (all the 'fun' stuff-yeah right) and made this:

a mini double sided quilt for the pram/car capsule. i used a roller derby bandanna for one side (i designed these and had them printed for derby ages ago and had 1 spare), and some cute gingham for the other. it's not really a true quilt, since there's no patchworking involved, but i did sandwich a layer of cotton cellular blanket in-between so it's warm, yet cool. and i did do some topstitching, which is kinda the 'quiting' part, yes? i figure it's small and looks like a quilt, therefore it IS a quilt. ha.

and in other baby related news, i just ordered the last of the fabric i'll need to finish my nappy stash. should arrive next week, so i can finally finish the nappies.

and i ordered this delicious bag from cradle rock (Julie was lovely to deal with, i highly recommend the site) with some money my mum gave me for my birthday. she said to spend it on something luxurious, and pampering, so i'm booking in for a facial and a massage too, but this bag is so gorgeous i just had to have it. (and way out of my price range-i had made a satchel type bag-so it's definately in the 'spoiling' category that's for sure!) it comes with a zip out base with hidden change mat, and a coordinating wipes case and is nice and big and has clips to hang it to the pram too.
the site has right clicking disabled, but you can see more if you click here. they have some lovely bags, but don't sell online, so you need to find a good retailer in oz if you want one. (i suggest cradle rock!) i'm loving their 'swallows' range, but i'm guessing the sling is going to to be exxey, so maybe i can just find a good pattern online. anyone know of a free pattern to make the same style in the link? i like how slimline and neat it is. not really into the wrapping all around with extra fabric type slings-they look too hippy for me (sorry mum!).

ugh, too tired. i'm off to bed. hopefully this little monkey will give me a few minutes break from kicking me in the ribs! ha aaha
