Because I am in a family way, I am making things for the nursery. I am not really being very organised or colour coordinated about it. I saw a lovely mobile on Etsy, it was beautiful, but I am too poor to buy it and would take more fun from making it myself. I feel bad though as I have basically ripped off someone else's lovely idea! Terrible. But, in my defence I have made the top out of an embroidery hoop and I have put rain drops in mine which is different. Plus I have done mine in a much less professional manner. I really should have starched the drops so that they didn't curl. But the colours and the elephants are basically the same. It's a little rough round the edges but it was dead quick to make, especially as I have been spending so much time on the sofa trying to ease my ridiculously puffy ankles.
