A small distraction

A little someone has been keeping my attentions away from the computer and sewing machine recently but I'm ok with that.
Hubby and I had a baby boy George a week ago and he is gorgeous. It has been quite a hard few weeks but hubby and I are in complete agreement that this is my most successful project yet :)

A fab weekend

This weekend was my big 3-0 and hubby and I decided not to venture too far from home but to have a couple of days in London.
We were both surprised and amazed at the view from our hotel window and decided to have room service instead of going to a restaurant.

We wandered around covent garden and spitalfields markets and the National Gallery but the weather was not in our favour and we headed home early.
My family all got together on Sunday for lunch and it was great to see everyone before the baby arrives.
Now the week starts and with only 3 weeks till my due date there is a huge amount to organise.

A rainbow on a winter's day

I received a rainbow in this morning's post and boy did it make me smile.

This colour pack is pulled together by Lucy at Attic24 and I love how all the colours go together. I normally struggle to pick out lots of colour to go together so this preselected pack of yarn is perfect.
I've had to hide it away until I get the baby's room finished otherwise nothing will get done :)

A new chapter

Today is my first day of maternity leave and I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. The dog has been walked, hubby trousers have been fixed, I am half way through my to-do list which is supposed to take a week...
I had planned on painting the nursery, but it is still full of stuff which needs moving and I am on strict instructions from hubby not to lift anything.

I think that for the rest of the day I will move my sewing machine downstairs and finally get some baby things made. It is now only 5 weeks until baby is due and so far it has nothing home-made by me which is just embarrassing although there are a lot of half finished projects.

More later....

A hard earned rest

After a busy weekend of shopping, organising and cleaning it is a welcome break to sit in front of our fire with some sewing and some tv.

With a hectic week ahead these few hours of peace and tranquility are very much needed.
Have a great week

Reflections on 2013

Looking at our Christmas tree twinkling last night I reflected on how very lucky I am.

This year was a huge year for me and I don't think a year ago I would have imagined in my wildest dreams I would finish 2013 this happy.
Despite not having done as much sewing as I would have like I have set up my online store and got pregnant. We have renovated our bathroom and kitchen.
Max has been a wonder dog this year and we can't understand how we got by without a dog before.
As for 2014 and what it will bring... Hopefully as much happiness as 2013 (albeit with a few more sleepless nights). I'm not making any resolutions this year as I always break them instantly but I will continue to try and use my fabric stash rather than buy new and enjoy the sewing I'm working on.
Happy new year to you all x
