Snappy business

I don’t know how much other babies kicks, twists, and turn.  Mine certainly kicks a lot, any wraps, blankets, whatever, just don’t stay on him long enough to keep him warm in the stroller, so I made a stroller blanket with a strap on each side secured by snap fasteners.
I used the snap fasteners I found in an old sewing box given to me.  These were hand sewn ones.  After I have sewn four of these, two on each side, that is eight components altogether for extra strength, I found these fasteners such poor quality that they come loose at a slight pull… Not even strong enough to withstand even a baby kick!  I have to look for another solution!



Productive hobbies

A few years ago, don’t remember exactly how many, I’ve had a few beginner’s sewing lessons, and bought a rather exxy (that is, for my standard, I know there are some ridiculously exxy machines out there) sewing machine with a five years warranty. It ended up sitting in the closet collecting dust for the duration of that warranty …..

Since I am now looking after a baby, outdoor under the sun, in the dirt and spider webs’ not such a good idea unless someone can baby sit for me. I needed another productive hobby to keep me sain, so I’ve picked up sewing again.  Not that I have seriously done any sewing before ….

Anyways, the garden is calling out to me with blooms amongst the overgrown weeds! These peach blossoms were picked yesterday ~
