amboseli dressdid you see what I did there? Ambos-ellie?! Since going on safari with family to Amboseli and Masai Mara as a little girl I have always loved elephants. Have been looking at this fabric on my shelf for ages and finally made this dress for a newborn baby. Complete with mod trim!

it’s all in the name

baby girls

have kept a list of all the baby names I have embroidered on cushions over the past couple of years. A completely unscientific reflection of what people are naming their children, but they include…..

Joseph, Montgomery Albert, Amelie, Maisie Gwen, Fiona Jane, Charlie, Harrison, Josh, Connor, Daniel, Olivia, Holly, Isaac, Max, Emily Rose, Katie, Caoimhe, Matthew, Mabel Olive, Pearl Anais, Noah, Thomas Gordon,  Alleigh Elizabeth, Erin Grace and George! A few more friends’ babies due shortly so this list will be added to!

I hope ‘calaca’ is the right word for this, I looked it up on t’internet but may be misinformation! Spent many hours on this one over Christmas too. The raspberry pink just softens it a bit I think, and most importantly it went down well with my friend!
