On My Desk...

On my desk today is a project inspired by one of my holiday reads, The Creative Family. As it is Winter, I am trying to come up with some new ways to entertain the kids indoors & this book gave me some fresh ideas & inspiration. Today Ryder has really enjoyed sitting with me by the fire & sewing like Mummy.
Also, I had great mail waiting for me when I got home yesterday. Fi had very kindly sent me some vintage button snaps (which I can't wait to try out) along with some zips & other goodies plus my mini paper piecing swap quilt arrived safely too. It is so beautifully made & I love it, thanks Ros!
More desks to peek at here, thanks Kirsty!

that is such a great book. I'm reading at the moment. I love the idea of watching my little bub create. When he is a touch older, I can't wait to try out some of her tips.
I found a great list of things to do with bubs online. I hope this link works

I can't wait to try some of those projects. They look so great. Nice to hear you're looking for inside activities too - my little man busted outside today, but I think it was waaay too cold. I'm thinking we might bake tomorrow!
