Prizes and punky hair-dos on 29th of Blogtober

I can't believe Blogtoberfest is nearly over!! Which means only a couple more days to enter my giveaway... And my other giveaway..... ;-)

Meanwhile, look what the postie brought!!

It's my stunningly pretty, cute and gorgeous prize from the giveaway Sarah ran at Christopher & Me - a pillowcase dress (which sadly is slightly too small for me, being suitable for 9-18 months...) I had planned to give it to a friend who just had a baby girl, but Sarah mentioned that it could be worn as a top over jeans or such like and while it's still too small for me (boo!!) it would fit The Girl - if I can only persuade her to wear it, as she usually avoids pink, being a The Tomboy type! Failing that, I could give it to my god-daughter, who is definitely a The Girly Girl type and _loves_ clothes. Decisions, decisions! Meanwhile I just keep looking at it and admiring its cuteness and workmanship (and speed of arrival, all the way from Australia!) Here's a closer look for you too:

In other news, The Boy had a haircut this week. His hair is so thick and grows so fast that it's been really difficult to find a 'style' for him - we mainly just go 'short'! But this time we experimented with spiking up the fringe a little. He's still getting used to the idea lol and yesterday he discovered the hedgehog look:

We're still working on the style thing!! Note how the fringe is the only bit that didn't get spiked?!

Mel, you would not believe that I was just looking at patterns for pillow case dresses the other day - I'm not a sewer but I thought that this was something that even I could attempt!
