Exciting News!

Well, we think it’s exciting!  This year hasn’t been the best what with my darling dad having to move into a nursing home and poor old Mr Jane Makes having a heart attack but my dad is being well cared for and is as settled as he can be and Mr J-M is a new (and much thinner) chap!

Onto the exciting bit … I have two really lovely step-daughters who I have known since they were little girls and they mean a great deal to me.  I know they read this blog but I’m not just saying that!  They are both grown up now and living in London.  On a recent visit J told us that she and P are having a baby!  Mr J-M is going to be a grandad and I’m going to be …. I’ve not quite decided what yet apart from very pleased!

I’m now planning some tiny sewing but, as this blog is not secret, I won’t necessarily be revealing too much here.  I probably won’t be knitting as I’m far from an expert but when it comes to baby-related fabrics I’m quite beside myself!

My first purchase was a kit at Sewmance in Brighton on Saturday.  I’ll probably do a separate post on that event but here’s a sneak preview of the fabric.  I’ve looked at the instructions and have no idea how I’m going to deal with something so weeny but I’ll give it a go.


The new arrival is due at the end of March but, given the way time flies, that day will be here before we know it!

  1. Congratulations! I’m a step-grandmother, too, and have decided to be “Grandma”. Mr H-L is “Granfer”! You’ll have fun on the sewing front from now on then – making small stuff is usually quick and extremely satisfying:)

  2. Congratulations!! Lovely news!! There’s some very cute things out there to be made for boys and girls. I remember going crazy and making loads of things for H’s nursery with fabric from mammas and papas, so it worked out loads cheaper than in the shops! I even made one of those things to hang up and store nappies in! I just stopped Sewing for him after that and wish I’d have carried on. This first kit you’ve bought looks really cute, looking forward to seeing what you make. 😀
