Bibs, Food & Sidewinders?

My youngest nephew was christened yesterday so I made him some handmade bibs for a christening pressie. He's about six and a half months old now and he's getting more dribbly so these are in a larger size (perfect for soaking up lots of dribbly bits)!

This was my contribution to the christening feast......choc truffle balls, caramel & choc chip slice, and lemon slice.....


In completely unrelated news, I saw this sidewinder on My Cottage Life blog. You can use it to fill bobbins away from the sewing machine. Susan found it at Walmart. Has anybody in Australia seen one of these in the shops?

Mmm, feel free to bring any sort of slice to Brown Owls with you!

The bobbin winder thing should be at Lincraft, it was in the last brochure I got from them. About $30I think.

ack, there's supposed to be a space there. Thirty, not 301.

Hmmm your post makes me want to have something very bad for morning tea.
I do love the camo bib will be especially good for hiding all of the green spills!

Mmmm that choc chip caramel slice looks yummy. I saw those bobbin windy things are Spotlight recently. I think it was cheaper than $30

I have definitely seen those bobbin winders recently so it must have been in Spotlight. I was at my cousin's daughter's christening yesterday but they didn't have any of those yummy treats.

Love those bibs! The Caramel and Choc Chip slice looks awfully tempting!

That sidewinder thingo looks like a useful gadget. One of my pet hates is having to unthread the machine to fill bobbins.

Such yummy looking food!

I learnt how to wind a bobbin for the very first time on the weekend (except in year 8, but that's so long ago that it doesn't count)... Can you tell i'm using mum's sewing machine but mum's on holidays? PS: Those choc truffle balls look divine!
