36 week WIP

** Make sure you enter my fabric giveaway! **
Thank you so much if you have already, I can't even tell you how many flashbacks I've been having to my school days and fashion disasters. All the comments have made me laugh out loud - culottes, perms and other delights of hairstyling, neon, bell bottoms, lycra, all types of terrible denim - you can't help but cringe! You have all been thoroughly entertaining and kept my spirits up, thank you.

I am loving the date today 12/12/12, so satisfying! If it wasn't a month too soon I'd be willing the baby to be born today - at least it'd be easy to remember it's birthday!

I am 36 weeks pregnant today and expecting the midwife to come round for my check up, fingers crossed all is fine. I put some Fratellis on this morning and had a little dance with my daughter just to wake it up a bit!  

I haven't been doing a lot of sewing, I'm just too tired in the evenings but I have finished some small projects...


- More decorations!

My daughter and I made this cute owl one together using this tutorial.

I made these simple gingerbread men using this template. Both decorations were created after seeing them on feeling stitchy - a great source of inspiration!

- Secret Swap for Bee a Brit Stingy. I hope my partner will like it! We are swapping fabric baskets made using Ayumi's great tutorial.

- Scrappy? Sew Bee It! Bee block for Deborah. I had fun making this one, simple but so effective! She asked us to use whatever fabrics we would chose ourselves, which is a cool concept. She picked Amanda's 36 patch block:

- I am hand quilting my hexie cushion. I decided just to stitch in the ditch around some of the hexagons. It gives a nice texture and I didn't want the stitching to take away from those gorgeous prints.

- HFWYG? QAL - I've done some prep and am working on the blocks but no pics yet

no progress:

- Rose Stars
- the May quilt
- Blogger's BOM
- Braid quilt
- granny blanket

completed: 3
new projects: 0
in progress: 7

other excitement:

This past week I have introduced my new sponsor ChristaQuilts  - thanks to those of you that have shopped, vouched for the great service and fantastic international shipping rates (only $10). I have to just point out the amazing deals Christa has too - each day there are different daily deals, there are weekly specials, as well as end of bolt, clearance and bargain bin sections of the shop.
