A milestone

This morning saw a huge milestone for my baby girl, Chloe. Yesterday saw three nights in a row where she was dry in the morning so last night we went cold turkey with her wearing undies to bed.... AND she woke up DRY!!! YAY so proud of my little girl and hope that they dry nights continue. She is also very proud of herself and prides herself in telling EVERYONE she has come across today that she sleeps in undies just like mummy :)

What have I been doing?

I have been a bit MIA on my blog of late. So where have I been and what have I been doing???

I have been a little sidetracked with my camera and learning the ins and outs of using it and also getting a grasp on more of the PS CS4.

So here are some of the photos that I have taken and been working with. All of the photos I have put into storyboards created in CS4 so that I am not bombarding you with an image heavy post :) The first two storyboards I am getting printed on 20" x 20" canvas' to hang in our house and can't wait for them to be finished. The last two are photos from my first session that I did on manual mode, still soooo much to learn but enjoying every moment.

My latest project

The latest sewing project that I have been working on is a present for a friend for her upcoming baby shower this weekend. Her and I have been friends since high school and she is due with her first daughter, Charli. Another friend and I have been giving a rocking chair a makeover as her present. I have recovered the seat covers in pink gingham fabric and made a coordinating hourglass pillow using this FREE Amy Butler pattern. I machine blanket stitched the butterflies and flowers onto the pillow pieces before sewing it all together. My friend had the fiddly job of stripping the chair and repainting it. I went around yesterday and did the final measurements for the straps on the cushions and I think it is looking very nice indeed!

Here are some pics of the finished product (well almost)
