I am trying to finish off artwork for the walls in the nursery. I decided to do a vector version of one of the illustrations I did in the exhibition last year. I added in a little extra detail and used ice creamy colours which will tie in with the rest of the colours in the nursery.

When my good friend Bee over at Honey Jumble had her baby Elora, I decided to make her a rag doll. Once again I am not good with patterns and I couldn't even find a pattern - so I just winged it and made my own up! I was quite happy with the result. Not perfect, the stitching was a little dodgy but overall I think she is quite sweet. What do you think?

Here is a sneak-peek into some of the little projects I have been working on for the baby's room. I had trouble finding a quilt I liked at the shops and in the end thought stuff it I will make my own. I wanted the nursery to be unique, pink but not too pink and a little bit vintage inspired. I am no expert when it comes to sewing things and I have trouble following patterns, so I usually just make up my own along the way. But I found this blog Diary of a Quilter very handy with the quilt and Cluck Cluck Sew was the inspiration for my pillow. Sewing can be quite addictive. Give it a go!! The cute Scrapbook Girl Rattle Toy is by Mamas & Papas - Daddy-to-be found it.

I have started on a couple of illustrations for the baby's room. If I like them enough they may even go into my Etsy shop. Here is my Babushka Dolls illo - they are a trend that just doesn't seem to go away but I don't mind because I enjoy drawing them. I love not having to draw hands!

Yipee.. only one month to go till I have this baby! I started maternity leave a week and a half ago and had my Baby Shower on the weekend which was just lovely. Now I am free to do crafty things for the baby and maybe get some new illustrations done for my etsy store.
