I have to apologise for the extreme lack of activity on my blog in recent weeks. Now I can finally share the reason with the whole world... I'm pregnant! And for the past 5 weeks or so I have spent most of my time looking down the toilet. I'm starting to finally feel a bit human again...

It's been a struggle for us. I was told in May 2008 that I had started my menopause (at 39!!) and there wasn't a hope of me producing my own eggs. So we started on the long and financially crippling road of IVF and egg donation. The third attempt worked and thankfully all is going well. I realise we are incredibly lucky - I've heard some real horror stories of 9 or 10 attempts and counting!!

So now I can focus a bit on the months ahead. One of my first baby projects will be this beautiful mobile from spool.

You can select the pattern for the bird under their 'Free Pattern' menu on the left.

And I love this Lizzy House fabric from A Fabric Outlet

I'm going to try and be a bit more productive here from now on, so see you very soon!
