Home days and tea parties

Photos included due to the loveliness of the washing. I know I'll get bored of teeny tiny clothes, maybe even resent them but for now I am enjoying all the firsts that come with baby number one.
                                                       Look how little those socks are!
I've managed a little bit of sewing. A off-centre triangle for Becky as part of the Around the Block swap that I am in. I'm loving pink and green - so fresh.

My dear friend Jo organised a High Tea baby shower for me. This is the table set just before the guests arrived. Her mum got out the lovely cups and saucers - it made the day that little bit more special. Plus I feel like an actual lady if I drink my tea from fine china :o)
I've got 4.5 weeks to before my due (yes, I know, it could come early but I need something to aim for) and things are going well in Tummy Town. Baby is doing, measuring and wiggling all the right things at this point so I feel pretty relaxed about it all.

Time to head to the beach for Jo's hens weekend which involves me getting a facial and head and neck massage....yep, life's good!

Fortunately the new house is a little bigger than the one I've sewn. A quick creation for Danielle as part of the 1st Wednesday Block Swap. She's making an ace quilt called Tiny Town which I really, really love. It's my first project in the new house and not bad considering the shamozzel that the sewing room in still in.

Okay, it's not too bad but downsizing in the craft department isn't so easy. It has made me start to think about scrap management so I have been through some 'might use one day, various size and colour scraps' and got them sorted. I was even brutal and threw stuff out. Not much in scheme of things but at least three bags got downsized to one.

And as for the tummy, that is continuing to expand, as expected. Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon having High Tea with some friends as a sort of Baby Shower. Many sage words of advice for me and way too many sweet things eaten so I guess the tummy will be even bigger by the end of the week ;o)

These photos were at 32 weeks and I'm half way through 33 now. Time seems to be marching on which is exciting as well as daunting.

This is my last week of work so I am really looking forward to finishing up on Friday and starting the 'festival of sew' on Monday...interspersed with a lot of daytime tv and playing with teeny tiny clothes in the nursery.

See you in Sewland peeps,
