November ECO market

The next BrisStyle ECO market is on 6th November. I'll be there, sharing a lovely outdoors marquee with Kate from dash robin, with a whole host of upcycled, recycled and repurposed kids clothing and accessories. I'm making what I can, but progress is a little slower than usual, thanks to three adorable but very time consuming individuals, in particular Miss 3 weeks, though Mr almost 4 and Miss 2 do a pretty good job of distracting me as well :)

Look at this. Just look at this!! 125g of handspun, hand dyed rainbow gradient BFL, given to me yesterday by Sally from Fauve Fibres. I love it so much I could scream! I love bright, I love rainbow, I love handmade. And this is all that, plus more! Just because she's awesome and knows I prefer bulky/chunky yarns, it's a 12/14ply to top it off. Now, the big question, what to make with it?

And then there were 5...

Our third baby and second daughter joined us earthside at 1.53am on the 30th September. She was born by candle light into her daddy's hands in our lounge room. It was a beautiful birth, being a night labour and birth by candle light, with lightning, thunder and rain storming outside.  A beautiful way to welcome the last member of our family.

Our other two children were woken to be there when she was born so it was another lovely family birth for us. She took 9 hours to join us, weighed in at 3.96kg (just under 9lb) and was born with her hand on her face, just like her sister. So far she has been as quiet and calm as her birth was, and needless to say the entire family is completely smitten with her!

Welcome Anya.
