There are so many talented people out there. And many of them are extremely generous and willing to share their ideas, successes, and even instructions for how to create similar results. I have been spending quite a lot of time browsing blogs and websites, searching for ideas.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to collect these ideas and create a plan for myself, of the things that I really want to try. There's so much out there, that really you have to control yourself and not get carried away thinking you are going to try everything!

One blog that has given me a kick start in the baby clothes department is having a giveaway. This girl is talented. She just makes things without a pattern and they always turn out good. She has a little girl and some of the clothes she's made for her are so funky and cute.

I have a feeling that my next few posts will be pretty much all baby clothes. I am finding snatches of time here and there, but not much, so it's quite slow progress. Here's a dress that I started ages ago and just finished last week. Lainey wore it to church and looked sweet. The pattern says to make buttonholes, but I used snap fasteners and just sewed the buttons on for decoration. I'm a bit scared of buttonholes, I think!
And here's Lainey in her trousers, looking all chilled out in the sink
