It has got to that time where I can’t either be bothered to make anything massive, I’m too cumbersome/clumsy, or I wont be pregnant for much longer so while I’m in the last few weeks I’ve been doing a few other crafty bits that I thought I’d update you with.
First off I crocheted this cute little dinosaur (form a Mollie Makes magazine pattern) we have named him black sock. His tail is a slightly different green but we’re hoping that it will be a good lesson in accepting differences (and I am fighting my natural instinct to make everything perfect which isn’t a bad thing for me to do).
I also crocheted myself these hand warmers and Tim this bobble hat as it’s survey season for him now so he’s out working lots at night.
And last but in no way least I made these little soft shapes for baby to play with after reading that black, white and red were the best colours for up to six months due to sight development.
Tim even made a soft version of Matisse’s The Snail, which I helped him sew up. Hopefully baby will be amused!

The Matisse sewing is wonderfull 🙂
I’ll pass your comments on to Tim, thanks!
Lovely! I have 4 kids (youngest is just over a year old) but I didn’t start to crochet until just the last few months. I wish I had since I rarely got any sleep towards the end.
Yeah, I’m getting the waking up stupidly early thing at the moment and not getting a decent night’s sleep, I’ve heard that doesn’t improve once they arrive though!
It doesn’t! Lol. And the first time my kids slept all night I woke up in a panic.
I love the dinosaur and the shapes are such a great idea. It’s so lovely that you are making things for baby – don’t forget to put your feet up a little bit though 😉 x
I won’t, you know what I’m like though. Bored when I’m still!
