big girls bed & pina4

Today I made a pinafore for my almost four year old daughter..so I'm calling it her pina4. I can hear you all groaning about that one, yeah my sense of humour is a little on the cornball side of things. I think she will love her little dress...what a surprise when she gets home from Preschool.


This is my daughter's first ever big girls bed. Poor little poppet only just got out of her cot, she'll be four next month. She loves her bed & has only fallen out once, but kept sleeping right through the ordeal...now that's a skill I wish I had. Mind you it has been quite a while since I fell out of bed. Aahhh that takes me back! Went a bit artsy again with my photo finish, the room is actually nice & bright with colourfull curtains that I patchworked myself out of lovely yellows & green prints.

What a sweet room, nice job on the curtains, you must have a lot of patience to do patchwork en masse like that. I think cornball humour goes with the territory of having kids, although it's a worry when even they think you're just plain cheesy.

I hope your little miss is having a great time at Preschool...

What a funny old fellow is Humphrey? He gets in all matter of strife. He leads a very exciting life and honey is his favourite fare. What a funny old fellow is Humprey! Humprhey, the fun loving bear. XXX

Cornball humour is awesome! As are the dress and those curtains. Wonderful work. I'm feeling the itch to get back to some sewing now...
