Where is...

my Blog-jo?














Is this good value or what?

I don't know about you, but I'm just amazed at this...

For $99, we were able to buy these...

And these...


And these...

And this...
All shipped from the UK to Australia.  For me, this is online shopping at its best.  No crowds, no lines, no grumpy husband sick of walking around trying to find the best deal.  I don't think I can get all of this, at this price for this quality, even at Best and Less.  Our "No Shopping Centre" month has continued on from December into January - yeah!!!

I had made a few of them already as baby gifts when Little Miss M ever so sweetly asked for one.  How can I deny my own?  And so I made a small fabric ball for Little Miss M, minus the tags and bells.  


It's actually one of my favourite fabric combinations so far - orange, pink and distressed denim.  And it's a great toy to practice "catch" with!

I'm not sure how many other parents can appreciate having a soft ball to play with inside the house - to practice catching and throwing with - especially when there is a baby underfoot that is shuffling around in the same play area.

How old do you think is "too old" to receive a fabric ball as a present?
As it was, still on a fabric ball crusade, I started looking for instructions on how to make a fabric soccer/football ball.  I figured t…
