Welcome

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet. I intend to use this blog as a showcase for my latest crafting endeavours and to provide detailed reviews of patterns, kits and accessories on the market along with details on where to find everything yourself, should I inspire you to try it out. Please feel free to comment on my posts, provide your own thoughts on the subject, answer questions and even suggest posts.

It has always been my goal to add a post every Wednesday, but due to current circumstances posts may be as scarce as once a month. Appologies and I hope to return to my weekly posting shortly.

Best project to date

I know my aim was to write this blog on a weekly basis, but that doesn't seem particularly feasible anymore, so for a while I'm going to have to cut down to a monthly blog post and try to bring myself slowly back up to weekly as things settle into a routine here. There have been some huge changes in my life and again, I know that I said I was going to try and keep this a strictly craft blog, but I feel I simply must share the reason for the change in frequency with you, it's too beautiful and big not to...

I'm finally expecting my first child! As this blog goes live I'll be in my second trimester, so you can imagine how slow my crafting has been recently. Between trying to get the new house in order, morning sickness, appointments and my wonderfully painful pregnancy related sciatica, I've just not been very productive, but I figure I'm producing a baby! That's hard work and it's taking a LOT out of me, so I won't be able to post my blog as often as previously planned. Not until I can actually get some of my energy back at least.

So anyway, this is little Ziggy. We don't know if he's a boy or a girl yet as this is our 12 week scan and that area isn't visible until at least 16 weeks, and that's always providing he lays in a way that we can see. He's not too co-operative with the sonographer and made this scan last quite a lot longer than it should have because she could not take any measurements off him. As you can tell though, I'm pretty convinced that he's a boy. I'm not sure if you can tell in his picture, but he's using me as a pillow with his legs in the air and his arms folded behind his head. We were so lucky that we had such a clear view of him. He was very active and alert, sucking his thumb and even waving at us! It was the most magical moment of my life!

So anyway, I hope you don't mind me neglecting this blog for a little bit, I will be back to posting craft related posts again shortly and hopefully I'll increase my posting from monthly very shortly.
