I am a mum to 1 (Jot) who is now 10 months old. Where is time flying to? I am married to a chef (R) and have been for 7 years now. We are recent arrivals to Australia (2006) and became Australian citizens in March of this year. Jot was an Aussie before her parents.
We were blessed with the arrival of Jot in September 2008 and the last 10 months have been a huge rollercoaster ride for me (and through me for R). I finally feel like a mum though (just in time to go back to work) and am really enjoying Jot now as a person in her own right. My very independent miss.
I live in the centre of Melbourne and am currently on maternity leave from my job as a personal assistant.
I used to really enjoy sewing - although I never claim to be any good at it - but my machine got put away when we had visitors in early 2008 and due to some terrible morning sickness I never had the wish to get it out again.
In May 2009 I was looking though the Nappycino forums and found a sew-a-long for June which was fabric baskets and I decided that it was within my capabilities and so I dug out the machine and commandered one end of the dining room table and I was away.
Since then I have made a handfull of things but have rediscovered my desire to sew and so I plan to make as many Christmas presents as possible this year. At least I am making useful things.
And so to sew.
