The "Growing A Person" Project has gone a wee bit pear-shaped, thanks to my increasing blood pressure, which, combined with the expected head/pelvis incompatibility, has required that we book an elective c-section for early in I'm still pregnant, but only for a few more weeks! It's quite funny to think that we know our baby's birth date in advance, and that we've been here before, but it's very reassuring to know that my lovely obstetrician has the welfare of both Baby Peanut and I very much at heart. In the meantime, my self prescribed "therapy" has involved:

Eye pillows, made from the "In-Stitches" pattern, for the special mothers on Mothers Day (with one more to make - for me!):

Playing with my gorgeous niece on Mother's Day:

One down, two to go - finally, a nappy bag for me (hedging my bets on the pink AND the blue!):

Lamb shanks, in the slow cooker, which was my Mother's day present (thank you boys!):

I think we'll be just fine.

Happy Birthday Mama

Today is my lovely Mummy's birthday :: A knitting needle case where an Amy Butler stripe collides with a Denyse Schmidt floral, and a cute blue spot with more Denyse in the interior. Too pretty.
And I made this one too, for my friend Kim :: More Amy Butler's, with the exterior fabrics from the Lotus range (picked up from the Sew Creative stand at the very average Stitching & Handcraft show a few weeks back) and the interiors being Charm's.

I may be the biggest Amy Butler fan in the whole world. No, seriously - I am the biggest. You should see the size of the Bump!
