Hello all/anyone. I'm still here. Today I thought I would share some of the pre baby goals I've been getting through.
I set myself a few goals shall we say and this week which was my first maternity leave week has been quite productive.
I finished another pair of Rose City Rollers socks in Felt Fusion yarn
I also did a rounded toe for the first time.
A massive tick went to finishing baby boys quilt. This is very simple really and this is for his rocky chair in his room. I've used a combo of fabrics but I had my eye on the balloon fabric for the longest time.
I made another little floor mat size one in some More fabric I have loved for a long time. The lovely fox fabric
They were big big ticks on my list and I'm so so happy to have them done.
A few weeks ago I finished some willy blankets for the baby but only just
got around to photographing them.
I finished my crochet one a while ago and Martha has been stealing it ever since
I'm really pleased with the colours on this. I wanted it 'boyish' but not just all the blues. This is the extent on my crochet skills. I would love a square one or a ripple or a corner to corner etc but yeh my skills don't stretch quite that far.
And I made a knitted one.
This is my favourite thing I've made him. It's a chevron babh blanket. I've used a mix of yarns but mainly Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.
I made a similar one for Martha after she was born but love this and it's def going in my hospital bag.
Finally a goal for me. I started a Lush cardigan a bit ago and really wanted it to the easy part so I worked super hard and got the lace finished and blocked it on a ironing board to save crawling on the floor
It's hard to really tell but I did the yoke and then tied off the sleeves. It's a fun construction but now it's just ready for endless stocking stitch
Yeh hard to photograph.
I've got a few more to share but that will do for now.
Pregnancy wise I'm frankly nearly blooming there at erm 36 + weeks. Whoop. Feeling a bit massive and things getting a bit harder and I have had more
Colds than u can shake a stick at which have been slowing me down but so close.
I'm a little bit comedy bump size now
Right this pesky loosing a hour isn't ideal so I'm gonna get up and maybe stick a sewing pattern together coz I have a whole day and a half to myself this week while my small person is at nursery.
You have a lovely Easter
Back soon xx
