i'm grouchy. mae is grouchy. there are times throughout the day when we'll have a little laugh fest but usually it's her grizzling because she:
a) wants the toy
b) is frustrated with the toy not fitting into her mouth properly
c) does not want the toy taken away no matter how frustrating it is
d) is tired but
i) can't stop rubbing her eyes
ii) keeps knocking the soother out of her own mouth
e) gets swaddled so she can sleep properly
f) is on the playmat
g) is taken off the playmat
h) feels the milk isn't coming out fast enough for her liking
and me looking sour with unkempt hair and bags under my eyes, patting her on the back and thinking longingly of the days when she only woke me up twice a night instead of three or four or SIX times, like last night. growth spurt? teething? who knows... i took her to the doctor yesterday fearing she might have an ear infection or something but, nope, she's healthy as a baby ox. just grouchy.
so i was going to post a lot this week, had lots to share and lots to whinge about and then my internet connection had been super finicky and i've been busy with said baby patting and really it all just ended up being a bit too much work. i owe at least 6 nice people emails that i will try to get done by the end of the weekend, pinky swear.
i did manage to get a few things into the shop but there are still a couple of oobees, some pillow covers and the lovely pink quilt to list (the blue/red one sold pretty quickly with a matching pillow and a couple of people said they were coming back for the pink one but didn't make it - should i take it as a sign i can keep it?). i'm also going to be offering custom cot quilts which i'm excited about because picking out fabrics and quilting them up is so addictive to me. i'm hoping it will give me a chance to work with some colours i don't normally use which, of course, will lead to buying more fabric (speaking of which, did you guys get the spotlight VIP offer that's on right now?? spend $100 on anything, including sale items, and get $40 off! i popped over last night and bought some huge 315cm width cotton quilt batting and some assorted odds and ends. gotta love 40% off. it's on till tomorrow so if anyone needs a copy of the VIP offer PDF, drop me a note and i can email it to you).
anyway, these two lovelies are in my shop now, along with an assortment of other onegirl goodies:
made with a fuzzy sheeplike cotton blend, lulu has a cream wool felt face, bright blue eyes and a bright pink nose. she is decked out in little denim pants and a designer (anna maria horner, don't you know!) cotton top and is stuffed with cuddly soft wool fleece. ::update: lulu has been set aside for a very special swap::
made from a soft pink, thick woven linen, petal has a cream wool felt face, blue eyes and a sweet pink nose plus has the extra bonus of a sweet floral print on her ears and another on her tail. she is stuffed with cuddly soft wool fleece.
