This one is for ME!!!!!!! *squeak*

Ive been completely in love with Melrose Pony (an extremely hard to find, out of print Kaufman fabric) ever since I first laid eyes on it. I found 1/2 yd on Ebay and ended up bidding over $60 (eep!) for the lot. Needless to say, no-one is as silly as me and I won, got just over 1/2 yard and have stared at it since.

Ive since got Melrose Pony in the pink colourway too, which is beyond awesome. Just need the orange to really satisfy my orange Melrose fetish.

Now, I know that the print isnt officially called 'Pony' or 'Peony'. I just want to know which one it is (out of the two Ive mentioned...). Anyone know?

You like?!

I am so overwhelmed at the response that I have received since launching my carriers! I love making them so much, and with at least 6 hours work in each carrier you would understand that just to get motivated to make them Ive got to really feel it. It is because of this that I cant possibly do custom carriers - its really really hard for me to say no every time I do but you have to understand that I have to. Custom anything (nappies or carriers) freak me out, make me feel stressed and time poor, even if it is just one or two things. And in the act of saying yes to one mama I have to say yes to everyone. So there it is!!!

I am working on another couple of special carriers right now, one as a thank you gift to a wonderful mama who just put everything into a cause we all had something to do with.

On the nappy front. There arent going to be any for awhile - Ive got 1/2 yard of procare left, and it has been eight weeks since I ordered my next roll (and paid a premium for it to be shipped air mind you). Ive been stuffed around yet again by the certain company that I order it from, and am seriously considering making the move over to PUL. It makes me sick thinking about it *cry*
