Here's a little round up of what I'm working on (not a full WIP report because it's too depressing!)...
I have attempted some short stints at my machine and quickly appliqued this robot, using this tutorial. I'm not making a quilt of them though, just a cushion and hoping to have it finished very soon.
Then (because I've had the pieces cut out for ages and I love this block) I wanted to make the Tippecanoe blocks for the How Far Will You Go? QAL - this was the straw that hurt the pregnant lady's back though and I've only managed one of four, the rest will have to wait until the bump has gone!
So back to EPP on the sofa and block 30 of my rose stars:
I just love getting post from far away and in an envelope from Australia I got another lovely Bee feather, this one is from Debra - I cannot wait to put all of these together!
Then this afternoon I had 2 fabulous visitors! My wonderful friend Rachel and her daughter, this was the first time I'd met her beautiful daughter (carrying a cute hedgehog bag!) and she so kindly made these beauties for the baby:
How gorgeous are they?!! So sweet of her. She had also made some scrummy biscuits (devoured by me and later hubbie!!) and Rachel gave me a jar of marmalade, which I will sample in the morning! I feel spoiled by these lovely treats, thanks ladies!!
We spent a nice time chatting and they really are so down to earth and funny. It was fun to have some company and hopefully they'll be back soon to meet the little one :)
Speaking of the impending arrival, my biggest WIP, I had a midwife appointment today and she suggested bouncing on one of those exercise balls to get the head engaged fully (it's hovering a bit apparently). So I will be spending the evening doing that!
Due date is tomorrow, husband is trying to point out that it's not officially late yet (doesn't help!!), but I hope it arrives within the next week so I can avoid having a sweep. Please send 'get out now baby' thoughts my way ;)
