11 September 2009


first of all i'd like to say a big thank you for all those lovely comments following our news last time. my heart swelled with each one that came through...lots of you had been there for me through the harder days and so i really am thrilled to bring you up to date with our story.

and all's going really well. we had our 20 week scan and our little babe is still dancing away in there! after all the ups and downs that led us to this wonderful place i don't think i was quite prepared for the worries that i'd still find myself feeling. but the joys that we're experiencing already together are even better than i could ever have imagined.

so i'm about ready to get into making mode {playing catch up to my mum who has been on a knit-a-thon for weeks already!} and i just bought a batch of vintage patterns on ebay. i have so many little bits of fabric that i think will be just right for tiny things to wear. the patterns are used but they've been looked after so well and it's actually quite nice having all the pieces cut and ready to pin! they just arrived today so i'll be back with a show and tell soon.

wishing everyone a super weekend! our plans include chopping wood and a big family sunday lunch for my grandma's 80th birthday. the air has turned to autumn here but we still have the bright sunshine...perfect september weather! Xx


  1. What fantastic news. I can only guess from what you say that this is a very much wanted little one. All the best and enjoy all your small makings.

    I have always read your blog and was so sad to hear of your hard times so I'm really, really pleased to hear you're expecting. I'm glad it's all going well for you and good luck to you. I'm looking forward to seeing all the lovely things you'll be making for the little one.
    Love Therese,xxx
