I am very excited to be working on a special sewing project this week. It is always a bit hectic to get things done properly whilst juggling looking after the house, enjoying maternity leave, and err...well, feeding and making sure that Baby is as happy as can be. Which she is, I am delighted to say. I will never tire of listening to her cooing, watching her sleep, holding her close in the little nook in my neck, smelling her baby hair after her bath. Those things make my day, everyday.
The Lavender household is going to take a little break for the next few days in search of lost sleep time and quality togetherness, but I'll be back soon with - hopefully- more on that little pet project of mine!
In the meantime folks, enjoy the start of summer - it's officially here!

baby mat

Last Christmas I spent a few chilly nights and days assembling this mat for my baby. I thought it would be ideal to change her on, but you live and learn, and after about a week of Baby being with us, the changing mat became a normal playing mat. 
Baby loves to look at it with all the different patterns, and she also gets to have a good kick-about on it everyday. When she is a bit older it should also be used as a bed cover in her cot. All in all, it's now a regular feature in our daily pictures of Baby.

♥ all the speculation about the Royal Baby...
♥ ...talking of which, have you seen this hilarious photoshoot?
♥ working on a new sewing project - on a big scale! I can't wait to tell you more about it when things are more concrete
old and new recipes - I made Jamie's spring vegetable lasagna from his 30 minute meals series, it was de-li-cious!
