Baby Dress and Beanie

 When you're a crafter what do you do when you find out that you're expecting a baby? After freaking out for a week or two because everything is happening so quickly you can't keep up!  I just couldn't resist when I was staring at all my gorgeous cottons to pick this one up and look up a knitting pattern.

I was recommended by someone to check out the designer Marianna's Lazy Days and her stuff is just gorgeous!

 Now I meant to post this up about a month ago when I actually finished this little dress but I've been struggling a little bit. I have a lot less motivation to do anything at the moment. I quickly run out of energy. I have about 10 posts sticking around in my head but I just need to get around to posting them. I will do it soon I hope. 

The little dress is called the Lazy Daisy all in one baby dress it can be found for free here. It was such a quick little knit and I can't wait to see it on my baby girl in a month!

The beanie is the Karina Baby Turban but without tying the last little turban part. You can find the pattern here.

I am going to go and write up a couple more posts though they won't be appearing straight away I'll try and pace them a little bit. But lots of cool announcements a few new patterns that I have released and of course pregnancy updates. Anyway I will be back with you shortly.


Happy Stitching,

I'm having a BABY!!

In case you missed the news in all the other ways I shared it, since I forgot to post here. Just before Christmas we found out that we're expecting a baby. It was a bit of a shock because we hadn't been trying we had been doing what we could to prevent it and I hadn't had any symptoms except putting on weight. So when I went to the doctor and the tests were coming back 6-10 weeks along we went maybe a little more than that but probably not much more. Then I went for the ultrasound. Well it turned out I was about 28 weeks along! 

So as of today I am I think 31 weeks along with little Spud due sometime mid-late March!!! To say it's been a journey over the last few weeks would be lying but I'm also becoming more and more excited to meet our little girl. 



To make the announcement to family I just had to make something special... So I made a new design :D 

It's actually from a drawing I made a couple of years back when I was bored but I figured it would serve the purpose quite well. Isn't she so cute? I also made a cute little boy as well. 

But honestly you could change the colours up and either of these designs could go for either gender. I'm not picky and nor should you be. This little girl is really only tiny. 38hx22w so not big. I'm going to add her name to it when she is born and her details and stitch it as a little pillow. 

So if you want to stitch this little character as well you can find the pattern here

I hope you like this new little pattern and the exciting news! It will mean that despite my best efforts I'm probably going to be more sparse here than I'd like. If you want to keep up with more regular updates follow me on instagram @naughtscrossstitches and @naughtslife_fitness it's easier and quicker to make a post over there but I like being able to write a lot when I can. It's a great keepsake and resource. 

Happy Stitching,
