An eventful summer!

 Welcome to the World! 

What an eventful summer!  Over the last 8 weeks, my crafting has taken a bit of a backseat due to the early arrival of our beautiful little girl!  Arriving 6 weeks early on 5th July (in the midst of the last Craftfest event - so apologies again to my brilliant Blue Team for abandoning them and thank you to the other team leaders for stepping in!), she took us by surprise by not only arriving early, but rather quickly as well!  Thankfully there was enough time (just!) to get us to the hospital and for Daddy to get himself there too so he didn't miss any of the excitment!  We are now getting to grips with becoming parents and getting used to sleepless nights, dirty nappies and noise - but we love it and absolutely wouldn't change it for the world!  Everyone has been so kind and so generous and we have been given some amazing gifts!  There have been quite a few handcrafted items including plaques, knitted booties and clothes and the odd keepsake or two thrown in.  

I have been having a browse on Folksy and WowThankYou websites to have a look at what new baby items are for sale and I have come across some beautiful and gorgeous toys that I thought I'd share with you!
