We Making

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments and good wishes on my last post. I'm almost behaving like a normal person now that the morning sickness has passed and am back to sewing, fuelled by double deckers and monster munch. I do seem to be suffering from a touch of pregnancy brain though - this week's highlight was dropping my mobile phone down the toilet, I know not how, so I am now without phone or any means of telling the time while out and about. That's really going to help with making me more organised ...

The We Make Christmas fair is now looming large, taking place in Chelsea Town Hall next Saturday, 5th December. Please do pop in and say hello if you're in the area. I'll be sharing a stall with Florence and Joanne in the ante room, in proximity to the Cadogan suite, where there'll be tea and cake, which I must say is an added bonus.

I've been trying to work production-line style and make batches of different things for the stall. Last week was pencil case and coin purse week. Although I have to say cutting out hundreds of rectangles of interfacing, fabric and linings was rather tedious, it was good to get it all done in one go and immensely satisfying to end up with a stack of finished items.

Purses and pencil cases for We Make

This week it's make up bags, and I have a pile of fabric pieces and zips awaiting my attention tomorrow. I've been slightly distracted today by the need to whip up a last-minute king costume for my daughter's nativity play next week. It's all finished now, and my girl is delighted with it, in spite of it being a little hastily thrown together! I'm so looking forward to being a proud mum and watching her singing on stage next week.

plus one

From late Summer sunshine to the edge of Winter without a blog post. Not like me to be so quiet! I have had good reason, though:

expecting baby no. 3!!

I am expecting baby no. 3, due at the beginning of May next year. I couldn't be more excited, but have had to take a bit of a blog break due to chronic morning sickness for the past couple of months. I'll spare you the details!

My boy and girl are beside themselves with the anticipation of having a new little brother or sister. The girl wants a girl called Lily or Milly and the boy wants a boy called Frank or Toto! I'm looking forward to doing a bit of small-scale sewing, naturally.

In the meantime, I have a lot of catching up to do. Hundreds of unread blog posts, reopening the shop and sorting out some new stock, plus the small matter of preparing for the wemake craft fair on 5th December. To say I am behind is something of an understatement!
