crafty work!

hello all!

happy wednesday - hope that you are having a great day! i am most pleased because i got all three of my block swap blocks completed and in the post - yay!

so some sneak peaks.....

this one is for Gina in Brazil who asked for any block in bright, happy colours!

this is for the christmas block swap and is for micki in ireland who asked for a star block

and this is for linda in WA who asked for a star block

i hope they all reach their destinations safe and sound!

on a sadder crafty note, i have had to admit defeat for my friend's wedding quilt.  it is coming along nicely but will in no way be ready for the wedding this saturday.  she was very understanding and said anytime would be fine - i will be aiming for early in the new year.  i have put a couple of swatches of the fabric in the card to give at the wedding, so at least she doesn't think i am a complete slacker!!

on the puglet front, things are going well.  i think i have definitely turned a corner with the morning sickness.  i have only vomited once this week, and have had much more energy.  i am still sleeping terribly, but i seem to remember that lasting most of the pregnancy with the little human.

speaking of the little human, he is going great, and getting excited about all the awesome christmas decorations in shops and in people's yards.  he is still terrified of santa, but loves presents (of course!).  he has now finished all his christmas parties - playgroup, kindergym, his little friends - so just us big people to go now.

he is starting to become more aware of the fact that something is happening to my body, and regularly lifts up my shirt to say 'baby' to my tummy.  this is of course gorgeous, but slightly embarrassing in the check out queue at the shops.  he is occasionally confused and thinks there is a baby in his tummy too, but i guess he will work that out over time :)

here is a recent pic of him in 'summer time attire' in adelaide - don't you just know he is plotting something behind that cheeky grin!

pugs and much love, many christmassy hugs and kisses

Yes it is a good feeling when the swaps are in the mail and then you can wait to gets yours.
I am sure your friend understands how big the job of making a quilt is anyway she is getting the swatches. LOL
so pleased you are not vomiting much anymore. My GD stopped as she was giving birth. Poor girl.
It is such fun as your little one is discovering all about Christmas. Next year he will love it even more.

glad to hear you are feeling better.
I agree with Quiet Quilter... some memories these will be...
Very much looking forward to my SWAP block. Blue is my favo colour.
Let's hope you'll get yours before Christmas too.

Your son is adorable - just love his little rosey cheeks! I'm glad that you are feeling better as far as the morning sickness goes. I will be sharing Christmas with my two grandsons (18 months and 4 1/2 years old) and am looking forward to all of the "Santa" excitement with them.

Glad to hear things are improving. I've been late with hand made gifts many times. I'm not proud of it but like you, my health justprevented me finishing in time. Enjoy the wedding! Your lil human is adorable!!
