Unfortunately Liz hasn't been too well, laid low by a tummy bug. So Monday and Tuesday I was in London, to help with Rosie, whilst Jon went to work and Liz slept. Rosie and I had great fun - we went on the bus to the library and changed her reading books, and bought groceries in Sainsburys. And I put her in the sling for a walk down the Walworth Road. Even in the fortnight since I last saw her, she had grown so much. She adores bathtime, chuckling, and smiling, and splashing around.
But I have definitely missed a marketing opportunity. On Monday afternoon, when she was in the sling, I put on one of Jon's fleeces and zipped the pair of us inside. Her head was peeping out, so Liz popped the "Emergency Hat" on her head. [The one I made at Easter]
As I wandered in and out of shops, FOUR different women commented on the pretty baby and asked where I'd got the hat. I wished I had made more, so I could whip one out of my bag and say "£2 and it's yours!"
Liz seems to be recovering well, so I am back in Dorset now.
I have two craft projects on the go at the minute - but cannot say anything about them just yet [neither involves clothes for babies though]
