Oh my giddy aunt! I turned my head for what felt like a nano second and my beautiful little downy haired man is sitting up..well, almost.
My gentle, twinkly eyed, chatterbox babe is now viewing his world from a whole different dimension and is so delighted by it all.
Because we're still at that sitting perfectly one minute...toppling like a felled tree the next (complete with earth shattering impact) Mumma and Jan worked together to whip up a little cushion-ey affair.
Using the feeding pillow pattern from this super book as a guide I made the cushion out of calico and stuffed it with stuffing from a boomerang pillow that quite simply had seen better days. An extra removable cover with little ties to join it together so I can "de-vomit" it with a whirl around the washing machine when needed and Monsieur Remoulade is sitting pretty...well, handsome.
I picked up this powder blue Kokka linen with all things delish and boulangerie-ish from a delightful little fabric shop called my cupboard on a recent "shop my stash" expedition. Feeling oh so frugal and virtuous! Off to cuddle my poppets and hope I can slow time just a whisker.
