It's official!

I have the official verdict on the Monkeys in My Pocket Pyjamas. Given to me straight from the horses mouth! My neice Felicity who turned seven this year was given a set for her birthday this year. This morning she told me...and I quote,
"They are the BEST pyjamas I've ever had. They are soooooooo comfortable, I never want to take them off! I love them sooooo much!"
She went on to tell me she wore them on the drive to Shark Bay, which I believe is a ten hour drive from Perth, and they were so comfortable in the car. Apparently she wore them almost everyday of the two week holiday!

So, there you have it! And so I have been making more, and more, and there are more to come!

You can get yours here
About the sizing... I don't think I will worry about making smaller than the 2/3, but I will definately be making some larger sizes like 5 and 6, maybe bigger. What do you think?

Mini Mat

How funny is Michelle?! After the arrival of her baby quilt I made about a week and a half ago, she emailed me on Tuesday and asked if I could make her a baby gym mat! She loved the fabric I used for the napkins, and I had enough of that left over, so check out Michelle's baby gym mat... second sale from my Madeit store. Now to sell some more!

I still love making the pjs, so I will do some flannel shopping in the next couple of days and see if I can find some cute and fun flannels for more PJ sets...Coming soon!!
Now I'm off to weed the front garden on such a beautiful autumn day. Autumn is my favourite time of year, especially the crisp cold mornings that develop into the most perfect still, sunny days. They make me want to spend every minute outside.

two quilts

Early last week I got an email from MichelleM asking for a custom quilt. She had been looking for something for a while and liked some of mine. She didn't want anything too girly so she had a look on my flickr to see some of my others and liked Ma's quilt the best. Luckily I had enough fabric left over to make a baby sized one for Michelle.

I shipped it off last night to Canberra to its new home with Michelle and her little girl. I know it will be loved as Michelle was so excited when I emailed her a picture! I love making baby quilts and love it even more when they are going to someone who I know will love them more than me! (Even though I am sad to see them go coz I always want to keep them!!)

I made this one about a month ago and just had to bind it. I decided late one night that I wanted to try a star, so I had fun randomly cutting into some scraps and sewing them together where ever they fitted! It is so cool! I love it and even though it is only really little, I am definately keeping this one!!
