Dotty Vintage

I've come over all spotty!
I've been tidying up my fabric stash and on seeing these spots of Amy Butler's, I couldn't resist having a play around with them, they work so well with vintage fabrics. I think the combination of the fabrics create something very cheerful, bright and playful, perfect for a young child.

These three bibs are the start of a range of "Dotty Vintage" items that are now in my Folksy shop.

Backed with soft, absorbent cotton terry towelling, and a generous size with two snap fasteners, they are perfect for newborn right the way up to a toddler.

If I was to have a favourite then it would have to be the turquoise, the colours are so fresh and vibrant.

I'm having so much fun playing with these spots that there will be more colour ranges to come!!

So it's 2011

I'm still here and enjoying getting back into some sort of a routine! Which is something I never thought I'd hear myself say, as I loathe the school run, but now after the Christmas holidays, I realise how much we all need some structure in our day. Even E our youngest who is only 15 months old benefits from the routine set by her older brother and his school day. To be honest by the end of the holidays and after having all three children suffering with chicken pox, our days were all over the place. Christmas 2010 will always be remembered as the spotty one!

  We spent a lot of the holidays indoors, so it was lovely Sunday to be able to get out of the house and quite literally blow away the cob webs. There's nothing quite like splashing in the sea to get rid of cabin fever!

Or having a waddle on the sand!

So with the first full week of school coming to an end, we are all slowly getting back into our routines. J has realised that school unfortunately carries on even after Christmas! A is finding his 4 sessions at nursery saps his strength! And E is getting back into her daily naps! So hopefully I will get back into the swing of blogging and maybe even more importantly find the time to catch up on all the blogs I read.
You just never know!
