Baby Change Table Set

I've been wanting to cover the change mat for the longest time.
As I cleaned out some things today I found this Bubba Boo flat sheet for the cot which I rarely used and thought it would make a great fabric to use for the change mat.
All I did was lay the change mat on top of one side, flipped the fabric over to cover it and cut out one big rectangle.

The back of it is secured by some cheap sticky velcro.
I don't recommend it to anyone as it sticks to your needle and is icky!

Then it occurred to me that I could use the left over piece to make a matching pillow case cover.
The cuff part was already done so all I needed to do was sew two sides together to make a simple case. I think it has come out terrific and it didn't take that much time at all.

So if you have a spare flat sheet that you don't use, go ahead and cut it up.
The possibilities are endless.

The halfway mark

I still forget it's the beginning of the year. It's been a good start to the year with the birth
of my nephew and he's such a good baby. I think formula feeds have something to do with his 3-4hr sleeps. I've never had very sleepy babies.
This is me at 20weeks. I eat everything in sight and my back is starting to hurt. I'm getting baby kicks and we should be finding out the sex next week.
I can't believe I am pregnant with our fourth but I couldn't be happier or glad that I am pregnant now than later. I don't think I could cope if it was later.

In the meantime I made up this disappearing 9 patch block as part of the
Quilts for Queensland that Corrie of Retromummy has organised.
I'm not very good at preparing so the spare charm squares came in handy.
I'm not sure about my other blocks. I can't get my head around inches. I need a ruler with inches I think. Every block tutorial I've come across only has inches in measurements.
I am too pregnant to c…

Happy New Year

What a year it was. Ups and downs that's for sure.
I like happy endings and that's what we had.

Mr Trouble turned 3 and we had cake on New Years Day.

Miss 4 had an accident with her cousins fire sparkle stick and burnt the side of her eye on Christmas Day. Luckily after some ice, paw paw cream and then vitamin E cream it has healed up nicely and the scab has fallen off leaving just the pink scar which I hope will fade in time. Nothing makes you feel like the worst parent when your child has an accident that could have been avoided. You've been there, right?

We celebrated Mr 3's Birth Day by going to the beach for the first time since having our first baby. Hubby stayed in the shade while I played in the water with the kids and had a helping hand with a nephew. It was a perfect day and it really made my whole year.
Miss J really enjoyed the water too and kept screaming each time it came up around her waist. It was funny and cute.
I made these pyjama shorts for him today using …
