Crossing things off my to do list



I've got a week until I fly down to Perth to wait patiently for this baby to makes it's appearance so I've been trying to get everything organised and project finished before I go.

Realistically I'm not going to get it all done, but I'm slowly getting the most important things finished.

I've finished a fair few baby related crafts recently and just have three more things that I want to get finished before I go.

They are:
The modernqal baby quilt
The Low Volume baby quilt
Some bloomers that I cut out the pattern and fabric for about 2 months ago...

With the house stuff, well I'm pretty much done with all of that. There is no point in my cleaning showers within an inch of their lives or scrubbing walls, because B and the two older kids will be here messing up all my hard work for just under two weeks after I leave. Instead I'm leaving all that on B's list (insert evil laugh here).

Pregnancy Update: Weeks 32, 33 & 34.







Well I certainly go behind in my pregnancy updates, didn't I!? I'm 35 weeks now and thought I better get the missing weeks documented asap before I'm down in Perth and possibly without internet access.

Now just to remember what the last 4ish weeks have been like... Well I've been losing my mind that's for sure. I'm forgetting everything, calling the dogs the kids names and calling the kids their siblings names and giving Caden his sisters pink lunchbox... just to name a few.

I'm sure I would forget my head if it wasn't attached to me.

This whole pregnancy I've felt pretty good though. Up until last week that is, I've hit a wall and I am just so so tired and sore. By mid-afternoon I have a duck waddle down pat and my feet have ballooned out to resembled footballs and not feet. But apparently my blood pressure is still normal so that's a good thing. It feels a little surreal to be at this point in my pregnancy and not doing weekly blood pressure checks and giving urine samples. For my previous pregnancies I've either had high blood pressure by this stage or the early stages of pre-eclampsia. But it looks like I might not have either of those things to deal with this time around.

Bubs is also starting to engage, hence the duck waddle. And my braxton hicks are getting more frequent and painful.

I thinks that's really all that's happened in the last few weeks, well apart from Ethan asking if we are going to Perth today EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING.

Hopefully I'll be organised enough to share a 35 week update in a few days time.

Round the World

I've been such a slack blogger. This is actually my first post since the 16th of August! I think that's my longest stretch without blogging yet, even including when I moved across the country in 2012!

Anyway last month Amy of Ladybugs and Daisychains asked if I would like to participate in the Round the World Blog Hop, I said yes and saved this post in my drafts AND wrote it in my calendar so I wouldn't forget to write the post AND publish it, but guess what? I was supposed to do that LAST week... see I'm bad bad blogger!

I only remembered that I was supposed to write it yesterday. 

So without further ado, here are the questions and my answers. 


What am I working on?

Hmm, a lot of things actually. I've got a few baby projects on the go that I really want to finish this weekend. Two of which are these quilts, plus some bloomers.



Plus some crocheting that again I'd like to finish by next week. One of the crochet items is Ethans blanket and the other is some face washers for the baby and some for the rest of the family.



How does my work differ from others in my genre? 

Honestly I don't know, I don't really have a genre because I dabble in a bit of everything. You know the saying jack of all trades and master of none? Well I think that pretty much sums me up. 

Why do I write / create what I do? 

Crafting is my me time and as I said above I dabble in a bit of everything. So I have idea why I create what I do besides the fact that I enjoy it immensely. 

How does my writing / creating process work?

Hmmm, what creative process? I'm big on winging it most times. But seriously I always start out with some kind of plan that usually evolves as the project grows.

I'm supposed to pass it on to two people now... But because I completely forgot about this blog hop I haven't asked anyone yet. But I'll tag two people here and hopefully they will want to play along too...

So I'm tagging LittleWhiteDove and Cate of Life Behind The Purple Door.

There's always one


I was trying to take a few pictures of the kids this morning before my camera battery died...

It didn't go so well as one was either squinting or pulling funny faces. But I guess I now have plenty of photo's to look back on and laugh...
