rom birth to 5yo, this young son of mine has been such a delight.
He sure does keep me on my toes, but I figure that this is a sign that he is fit and healthy.
He is a climber, he asks why at every turn (why is that car blue? why is he driving a truck? but why!?) he loves to help is brother and sisters, he loves cuddles, and he loves cricket.
He is a typical boy, loves his vegitables, and has a very cheeky look about him, that suits is actual personality.
Happy 5th Birthday Tyler, its been an absolute honor to be your mum!
[and yes I did have him on boxing day, the little one decided to come 2 weeks early.
I was woken at 7am needing to go to the loo, got up to find I really didnt need to go.
Came back to bed and my bed got wet! Told my husband who just grunted! Told him again and he jumped into action! I didnt go into labour right away but was by 3pm.
Went into hospital and requested an epidural as my prior labour I had blamed not progressing due to stress so I wanted to try the epidural. My husband sat watching the cricket and my mother knitted.
After a while I was checked and a few more efforts were made to try and increase my labour. After a little while the babies heart rate began to drop, and while the Dr watched the cricket and discussed Chirstmas lunch he had cooked he also got me to sign the papers for a c-section LOL!!!
So little Tyler was born into the world! And he took to the breast like a duck to water! They wanted to make the video out of it he did such a good job.
I was a little woozey. my haemoglobin was very low and had also a rough labour, despite not feeling any of it due to the epidural.
But here he was, such a healthy little boy, so ready to meet the world and has not stopped since! (and our older Mitchell was just 15mo)]

here we have 3 more backpacks. 2 using the Indietutes backpack pattern. They are made out of denim with feature stitching. One is indigo and the other is blue. They are both to give away.
The other is the Made by Rae toddler backpack. Again in blue denim, but this one has a zip as well as piping. If anyone has any ideas of how to do piping neatly around tight edges please feel free to let me know, as if I can figure this out I might put my finger to selling these!

I was sewing last night, and looked down to see my husbands hard hat sitting on a box. I had a little giggle and thought Id share it with you. I recon that is what he puts n every time he dares to enter my den!

I did a little while ago, but didnt do much more about it :( But now I am in the market for a new bag pattern as Christmas is NEXT WEEK!! and I have presents to make!
So I am going to try and make the Buttercup bag for my neice for her birthday which was in November. I also have her mother and her Aunt (both my sister in laws) so I might make them Lickerty Split bag. I also LOVE the toddler back pack pattern, and have been eyeing that for a few months.
I also need to finish my bag swap, but am still arguing with myself over fabric choices LOL!
Lets see what I can come up with!

Told ya they were easy, so much so that I made 2 more, one for my little girl and the other for a birthday pressie. Its far easier for me to sew with the twirls going anti clockwise (on the right side). So this will be the order from now onwards.
I have decided to change the title of my blog, I hope that I dont confuse anyone. I have for a while been wondering what to call my blog and also my sewing. I wont be selling any of my creations, but it is nice to lut a little tag on things. So when I remember I will pop on "my favourite" lable.
I decided to call it "my favourite" as that is what my boys call things that they love. Whever they see something new they scream with delight "my favourite". That excitement is what I hope that my creations create for people.
I hope to get a new header at some point soon too, so stay tuned.
Over here in partnership with Retro Mummy- thank you for the opportunity :D
