After our snowy trip to the park on Friday, we went straight to buy a snow suit to keep Rose warm on our future trips out and about. We tried it on Saturday and if I do say so myself, she does look incredibly cute in it! It was the first time I had let her walk around by herself in the garden (I'm so scared of her falling on the concrete slabs out there..) and after I helped her walk down the step, she almost ran out into the garden. Obviously she was desperate for the freedom!
I hadn't put her mittens on for this little trip out into the garden and the first thing she did was touch the snow on the flowerbeds, the look on her face was hilarious! I don't think she was expecting it to be quite so cold!
Ray and I decided to go for a walk in the afternoon to stretch our legs and luckily we have a really pretty footpath just up the road from us. Rose had a little wander with her reins on up there but was exhausted so after about 10 minutes she was sound asleep in the pushchair..
Ray and I really enjoyed the peace and quiet though and it was nice to have some (not quite) alone time, I think you have much more meaningful conversations when out walking. It's so easy to just talk about the usual boring things like what needs to be done around the house when at home, so it's definitely nice to get out and get some fresh air!
I finished Ray's mum's birthday present yesterday evening and it's now wrapped up ready to give to her! I was so relieved from all the comments on my last post saying I Had actually sewn the pot holder together in the right order, thank you for that. :-)
My hand quilting definitely isn't perfect but I guess it's not bad for a first attempt. The back looked quite nice as well which was also a big relief!
Rose has started to amuse herself a lot more these day's which is lovely, a few more minutes to myself are always welcome! It's incredibly sweet when she sits looking through her books on her own, I Love books but what is it about them that children love so much?!
I've decided I'm going to use my time more productively to make things that I can sell in my Etsy shop, as it would be so so lovely to have a few pennies of my own, even if it's not very much.
Okay, well speaking of making thing's... I've off to get busy with the sewing machine! :-)
