Here we are at another catch up with all the crafty desks around the world that link up over at Julias....click on the link to find out more.

This week has seen me playing with more fleece and running a few more toys up for little Milly....

 Here she is now [photo taken Monday]....eyes are open now.  She is still not able to walk and drags herself around as yet....think she is struggling to get her fat tummy off the ground lol.
We are going to meet her in just over a week and a half....can't wait.

She now has a froggy toy.

A spider....she can chew, pull or just use it as a pillow.

A plaited chew / pull toy.

This got made to use up a spare bit of plaited fleece and we think it looks rather like a little handbag.  :-)

Just in case you think sewing is all I've been doing....we are still working on decorating our home and Monday saw us working together to tile the splash back in the new kitchen.....every time I walk into the room it makes me smile.  I really love the colours in the tiles and the wow factor they give you.

That's all from me for this week.  If you leave me a little comment I will do my best to pop over to yours to see what you've been up to this week.

I'd love to be your neighbour popping in to see the progress and getting the latest on Milly, who would of course spend as much time in our house as yours because in dreamland we would have adjoining gardens that she could safely run between.

Good morning, Annie. Now, would we EVER think that sewing was ALL you get up to in a week????? You pack SO much in! Love the little handbag!, and the rest of the toys. Millie certainly has an incredible amount of cuteness factor - she's really sweet. How big will she grow?
The tiles look great - well done the both of you.
Take care. God bless.

Oh Annie, I just love those kitchen tiles, at first glance I thought it was a quilt you were showing us, just lovely colours, soft and fresh and warm and cosy all in one.
Milly is sweet, but all those toys for her! I have visions of you bringing her home and losing her under a mountain of toys, and having to crawl under the pile to find her yourself. Really looking forward to seeing the pictures of that.

Lovely to see DH in the kitchen and what a pretty colour scheme you have gone for.
Sorry, but Milly steals the show. Love her toys but I kept going back to her and thinking about her fat tummy. So like a tiny puppy. She is adorable.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx
