James - Welcome to the World

Well, James is here. He was born on Sunday 2nd November and weighed in at 6lbs 6oz. On Monday, once the hospital were satisfied that everything was okay with both Susan and James, they were discharged and came home. Susan was so pleased to get home to familiar surroundings. Here is one of the first photos taken at the hospital. That little babygrow is for up to one month and it is so big on him that we had to go out and get him some in the 'new baby' size. I am sure that it will be quite a while before he can wear the cardigans I have made for him:


Chilling with Grandad:


He is doing really well and taking his feeds with no trouble. Just doesn't like being exposed when he is having his nappy changed!! He had his five day check up and only lost 6oz so they were very pleased with him.

I did manage to get another cardigan finished and am working on a v-neck one at the moment.


I am so pleased that we live close by so that we can see Susan, Ian and James every day.

I hope to be able to show you some more photos soon and to work on some layouts of James.

Watch this space.

'Our Boy' by Country Liv's Graphics

It was my friend Liv's birthday a couple of weeks ago and I used her kit 'Our Boy' to make a layout as a birthday present for her:


 Here are the kit previews together with close-up details:




You can find the kit in all of Liv’s stores here:


I haven't had much time for scrapping lately as I have been busy knitting for James. I have made three more cardigans. I made a dark blue one using the same pattern as I used for the maroon one. The buttons on this cardigan are 'Thomas the Tank Engine' ones with the engine James on them. Susan and Ian were so pleased when we showed them the buttons:

Here are the photos of the other two, one in mid blue and the other in grey yarn:




Not long now until 8 November when James is due to be born but you know babies - they come when they are ready and not always on the due date!!

'Boys World' Mixology packs by PattyB Scraps


PattyB Scraps has joined Go Digital Scrapbooking and has made a couple of packs  for the ‘Boy’s World’ Mixology which you can find in store here:


Here are the previews:



Here is the layout I made with 'Boy's World' using a photo of Corey actually standing still. Most unusual for him as he is usually dashing about:


I finished another little cardigan for James. Took a bit longer this time as the yarn was 4ply and a lot finer than the double knitting yarn that I have used for the other cardigans:


I was really pleased with how this turned out as I have never done a shawl collar before. Susan and Ian really loved it. Look at the little smiley buttons:


I have started on another cardigan using a lovely maroon double knitting yarn and will post a photo when it is finished.
