Introducing.... Wingnut!

So, I thought it might be time to finally 'fess up to one of the major reasons for my prolonged blog-absence.....

Yep, there's no denying it now - that tummy most definitely has a baby in it! Baby #2 (currently known as "Wingnut") is due at the end of April. It's been a toughy this time round but I'm now feeling much more myself and getting extremely excited about all things baby and treating Freya to the joys of sibling-ship. The last 2 weeks have been spent in an obsessive state of nesting so I have cardigans, booties and dresses galore to share over this next week. Back to vintage bags soon - promise - but first, I just have another oh, 20 or so,  pairs of teeny-weeny baby shoes to make!

Okay, so let's just skim over the fact that I've not posted anything since September and pretend like I've been here, wiffling away as usual... I've got lots to tell you (honestly I had good reasons for the radio silence) but I'll start off gently with a quick report on the fab - and first ever - ReFashion event at Oxford Town Hall last week.  Swishing, swapping, upcycling demos, an ethical fashion catwalk show, and lots of vintage goodies.... seriously, there was nothing not to like!

Not only did I get to spend the day talking about upcycling and hanging out with the lovely Jo of Darn it and Stitch (caught on camera in my quick snap above), I also ended up going home with a big bundle of fabric, and two new-to-me tops - bonus!
