Check out my birthday presents!

So, every year I buy myself a present for my birthday. This year it was this custom made wallet, the perfect wallet I should say! I really needed a new wallet now that I'm not in bed anymore and I'm out there spending money again. I wanted one where I could have money and cards but it couldn't be too big or too small or too something, you know?
This one is perfect and it's handmade and I got to choose all the details. And I'm very happy with it.
The lady who made it for me is very nice and talented. Check out her site here and her facebook page here.






I have known since November that my other present is a ticket to next Sunday's concert. The Bon Jovi concert, that is. OBVIOUSLY. My ticket is special because I will be up front very close to the stage. I'll be going alone, as all my friends bought cheaper tickets and will be far away. I'm not richer than my friends, I'm just a bigger fan. My husband doesn't mind.

As for my parents gift, I'm very delighted to introduce you to "Chiquinho", my new best friend who feeds on dog fur, which is something we have plenty of around here.

Pathetic

So my maternity leave is close to an end and little sewing has been done around here. I've finished the nursery curtains and have a baby quilt missing only the binding, but apart from that... nothing else to show! (and the quilt is not even for Helena, but for my husband's goddaughter)
And why? Because I've spent the last 3 months either translating books (I'm actually in the middle of the third one) or nursing or sleeping.
I don't know when I'll have the time to go back to sewing, to be honest, but I miss it a lot. And I miss blogging about it too.
I'm happy, but a little overwhelmed until I find my bearings. Going back to work, turning 29 and starting feeding her solids all in one week promises to be quite a challenge as far as bearings go, so... I'll try to keep you posted more often.

Until then, an updated photo of my little butterfly!
