Celebrate the BOY!

Browsing through my favourite blogs while feeding Hugo this morning, I came across this sweet post by Dana over at MADE. It’s time for another Celebrate the Boy! Two weeks of boy projects, starting Monday 25 February. And this time I have my own little boy.

IMG_1822Time for a challenge. Time to do some sewing for Hugo. Lucky little man! As Dana points out, there aren’t too many cute boy projects online. It’s a pity.

Me? Lucky?

IMG_1824So today I’m going to spend some time planning out some glorious boy projects. And getting a wriggle on so I can finish everything else I’m working on for Elena before the weekend!

Which means I’ve got to start Elena’s pajamas. A pile of washed, un-ironed flannel is sitting on my ironing board making eyes at me. It has been there for days. Have I mentioned I hate ironing? Although, as far as ironing goes, ironing pre-washed fabric is pretty sweet. No gathers, no seams, no sweat.

I’ve measured Elena up for the pajamas. She’s in love with my tape measure.

IMG_9925I guess I could call this development of maths skills, no? I tried to catch a cute shot of her measuring her waist. As you can see, I failed. All I captured was a reaffirmation that it’s hard to catch an excited toddler on film! She would. not. sit. still.

    Hugo is rather adorable! Elena reminds me a lot of my daughter. Run. Run. Run. stop for 2 seconds. Run. Run. Run. =)

    I’m so impressed that you manage to do any projects with 2 little ones. I just gave all my sewing gear to my sister because I simply do not have any time! So…YOU GO GIRL!
