I"m making something

I'm back!  Lost my blogging mojo for a while.

I made a bunny using this tutorial from Hazelnutgirl.  He's very cute but it was a real pain in the butt trying to sew the eyes on after he'd been stuffed, there's nowhere easy to hide the knots and because he's stuffed quite firmly it was hard to get the neat stitches that I wanted.

And this is my longer term project :)  I'm 31 weeks pregnant today, it's a boy and he's due on June 28th, my sister's birthday!

31 weeks

So far pregnancy has been great, no morning sickness, no bloating, no puffy ankles, no needing to pee all the time.  I'm a bit suspicious that this is too good to be true and he's going to be a little horror when he comes out.

I think though I have developed one pregnancy symptom, the nesting instinct, suddenly I want to make baby things!  Right now!!

On my list is:

  • toys
  • nappy bag
  • change mat
  • cot quilt (bought the fabric for this on Tuesday and going to start today)
  • pram blankets
  • bibs
  • burp cloths

I'm going to take the dog for a walk and then get cracking on the quilt!

So I'm probably going to be blogging more regularly now and boring you all with baby talk, photos etc.  I"m so excited about it!  :)
