A big move and a small sewing project


Apologies for the radio silence from me. Not only have I been juggling twincesses, full time work and general wifing, domestic goddessing (or not) and pure survival but back in June, we moved across the world. For anyone who has done this with small children, you can hopefully understand the complete chaos that we lived through and are still living in!  Needless to say, we made it safely across to the beautiful Mother City of Cape Town and are slowly finding our feet and building our nest. But all fun sewing projects are on pause and I’ve just been fixing blinds, sorting out things for the girls and just general boring “admin” sewing.

For now, all I have to share is a quick fix fitted cot sheet that I made in haste when I realised I only had one fitted sheet.  I was given a lovely flannel receiving blanket complete with crochet edges as a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law.  It was a good size for our travel cots (yes my dahlings have been sleeping in travel cots for months!) and with a quick addition of elastic zig-zagged along the edges, I had a great fitted sheet that works a charm!

  1. Sounds like you guys really have your hands full. Pleased to hear you’ve survived the move with your Princesses in tact. Is that your dog perhaps? Keep calm and carry on!! X
