Apple puree and a splash of Vintage

Can you believe my little Laura is 6 months old already! It's not quite time to celebrate her birthday yet but it is the time to start celebrating FOOD! 
Yep!  It's time for solids!!
I find something very therapeutic about pureeing up babies food...and I just love to watch their little face when they explore a new taste or texture... I have always made my baby food with the exception of my first child when I was young, naive and thought baby food came in jars and packets!!!  Different world now, I can tell you.  One thing I have never done before though is to make bubs bibs, I can't help but be inspired by the lovely designs I have seen on so many blogs, and as I  just love to sew now it was quite fitting that the next step for me would be to craft up some lovely vintage love to splash across my daughters chest.  Simple and easy to create, I found that sewing machine, sorted out some favourites from my stash and I took the weekend off to create....
Pattern here
I varied the designs a little bit and used a thick toweling (old towel) for the backing.
Do you think I could be the Happiest baby in the world....
You bet I am ....   :)

A little bit of This and a little bit of That

Ridiculous, I know,  but I get anxious If I don't blog! and I know I'm not alone!!
Blogging has become such a big part of my life, but I'm struggling to find time to keep it up.  I'm busier than ever these days but thought I'd share a few little snippets with you and let you know I'll also pop in on you when I can.
It seems I have been welcomed very kindly into the community...
What is Amish Friendship Bread : "Amish Friendship bread is a type of bread or cake made from a sourdough starter that is often shared in a manner similar to a chain letter. After ten days of nurturing the starter you divide it into small portions, some to bake with  and the rest to giveaway to your nearest and dearest.  Read more here
