Last week, dear friends of ours welcomed their new baby daughter into the world. They named her Hannah, meaning flower blossom in Japanese. So as a tribute to her name and its beautiful meaning, I made her a tiny little kimono from Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. I used a lovely (and very tiny) piece of Tanya Whelan's "Darla" fabric, polka dot bias binding and pale pink buttons as cherry blossoms to embellish it. As tiny as it is...it still swims on her. Bless!
I made a few appliquéd washers too as you can never have too many!
And because my lovely Mummy says you never call on new parents without food. Hubby and I made a vegetarian lasagne, an asparagus quiche and some bikkies
These are "breastfeeding biscuits" with ingredients to help with Mumma milk making (they also contain choccie chips just cause). My Hubby and our male friend took tentative bites when I told everyone what they were called as if with each nibble they would begin to sprout their own heaving set of milk laden bosoms! At last check, Hubby's boobies (sorry love...pecs!) were in their perfect state of manliness. But doesn't the mind boggle!
