The Home Stretch

*warning – boring pregnancy post ahead!*   I’m finally in the home straight – 38 weeks tomorrow.  I’ve been having some nigglings, and the OB seems to think baby will come sooner, rather than later, which I’m quite excited about.   So I thought I’d best sneak in some belly shots before the belly is no longer!   Taken this morning – 37+6:   And

Tagged again!

By Tracey & Esther, to list six things that make me happy.   1) A tiny boy, sleeping peacefully (or not) in his bed (or not). I could watch him sleep for hours, his face is the picture of innocent perfection, and fails to betray the mischief that lies just beneath the surface, awaiting the wakeful hours to be unleashed upon his poor, long-suffering mother.

Spreading the blog header love.

After my post yesterday for Ruth’s blog header, a few of my other quilting girls have requested I have a play for them, so be prepared to be inundated with blgo headers.   This one is for Tracey.

Thrift shopping

I popped into the Salvo’s op-shop on my way to the library this morning, and spent the huge amount of $5! I grabbed two vintage pillowcases, a bag of buttons, and two books, destined to be part of a collage.

Mummy Monday

First up was some craft time. What else does one make with a train crazy toddler, but a train!   This little train was made from a nasal spray box, two eye

31 weeks tomorrow

I can not believe how fast this pregnancy is going! Another nine weeks and we’ll (hopefully) have a new baby. I am bigger than I was last time, it took me til about 38 weeks to get this big!   On the craft front, I’ve been doing bits of sewing, only 8 blocks to go, which I am aiming to finish this week. I also

Thought of the day

From Sunrise this morning, it has really struck a chord. Have you danced today? Don’t wait for the storm to pass, learn to dance in the rain

6 blocks down!

Well, I’ve had a productive weekend. We’ve made our son a sandpit, and I finally got around to cleaning my office out & turning it into (mainly) my studio.
