Our Precious New Arrival and a Twin Pushchair

Hello all,
Well I had begun the year with great intentions to keep everybody updated but then I got a surprise, a new granddaughter so all my efforts went off in a rather PINK baby girl direction lol and oh am I enjoying her.
I thought I'd show you all a few pictures of my gorgeous 1st granddaughter Phoebe, she weighed 8lb 6oz at birth and she's almost six weeks old now which means that I have finally managed to slow down buying her gorgeous outfits and actually apply myself enough to finish off a twin pushchair that I started some months back - pictures below.

I have another twin pushchair on the table almost finished and then I've got some new materials to test out before I begin making some pram and pushchair kits.  The patterns for the body of the pram/pushchair is the easy part of designing a kit but I'm not sure how to convert the rest of the process into kit form so a little working out is needed here.

AND, as if I didn't have enough projects on the go, I started my DHE mountfield doll house, so far it has been just glued together but soon I'll be priming it in white before testing out my brick effect  mix that I got from Bromleys that I've never used before... I'll post pictures as I go so you can see how easy or difficult it is to use.

Ok now for all the pictures, firstly my little princess Phoebe...

She's absolutely gorgeous and I love her to pieces :) 

And here is the pushchair with separately reclining seats, yes it is like the last one but that is because since I made it everyone has asked me to make another one so, here it is and it is up for sale. 

Now if I can stop buying pink baby things I'll finish off my twin red and grey pushchair and then maybe manage to start designing some kits :)
Till next time...
Big mini hugs
