random snaps from my week...

quilt top
cot quilt making... i hope to have two light summer quilts to take to matilda's market in november.

in the ergo
toting the baby in the ergo baby carrier... love it and so does she.

heirloom tomatoes to be
heirloom tomatoes to be... the seeds were from a mixed heirloom pack from diggers so the varieties will be a surprise which i think is pretty fun.

trying to sun fade fabric
trying to fade fabric... i've decided that these two prints could stand to be ever so slightly less bright.

chocolate cake making
baking chocolate cake... for a friend's birthday tonight, using this recipe - if the cake tastes anywhere near as good as the batter, we'll all be in heaven.

new grevillea
enjoying the first blooms on the new grevillea i planted last year... i thought they were supposed to be yellow tinged with pink but whatever, still nice.

cutey monkey
and scoring plenty of smiles from this bundle of cuteness.

  2. have you tried other baby carriers? is this one that you can wear on front or on back?

  3. hi rebecca, you can wear the ergo on your front, back or hip which is the main reason we bought it - i find it so much easier to carry loads on my child bearing hips! because she's so small right now, we have to use the "infant insert" that you buy separately and it means she can sit/lay in there sling style until she gets full control over her noggin.

  4. I love my ergo too. We went overseas when my son was nearly 2 and it was so good for the airport. My husband carried our son on his back and said he could hardly feel his weight. I don't have the insert so haven't used it for the new baby yet, been using a pouch sling which has been great too.

  12. I'm really happy when I come across people using the ergo and they say they love it. I heard really good things about it, so that's what we went with too, though we have yet to use it...our baby should be here any day now!
    your girl is quite cute :)

  13. lovely photos!

    If you want to tone down the material, have you considered tea dying them? It will turn them slightly dusky.
