this little piggie

oh it's been

too long

for this i am truly sorry!!

it has been 3 whole months-a quarter of a year- since i blogged and boy it is good to be back!!!

most of you will know that i'm having a baby in april, and this has inspired me to make something nice for the little baboon...the thing is we don't know whether it's a boy or girl due to the fact that our baby crossed its legs in the scan so the technician, try as he might, couldn't tell...

this puts me in a predicament, what can i make for our tiny one?! i've decided that i simply MUST have bunting in the baby's room so i will make 2 different versions-one with cars and roads etc on in manly colours, and one with nice flowers and other things that girls like. but i really can't bear to make 2 of anything else, there is simply not enough time in the world.

so i've decided to make a farmyard mobile, seeing as nick is a farmer boy and our child will inevitably see and hear an awful lot about farms, regardless of whether it's a he or she.

here is my first contribution to the mobile-

a pig

i've actually fallen in love with this pig this afternoon, in particular its little bottom!!

here's a close up

how can you not love a patchworky bottom?!
