I'm having a BABY!

 I have been waiting soooo long to announce this! I finally had my 5 month scan last week and everything went really well. The baby is growing well ha ha and I don't think I'm in for a small baby! This is our first child and we are super excited. We are not finding out what we are having as i think i would prefer a good old fashioned surprise. So the first photo is from 13 weeks and the second was taken last week at exactly 20 weeks. I have only just recuperated my energy levels and will admit I have done pretty much no work in the first trimester. I'm slowly catching up as i have now hit panic mode-in 20 weeks i will have a baby in my arms and no energy to play with buttons. So my plan is to get as much work as possible done so all i have to do is list and post..ha ha we'll see how that one pans out eh?
I was amazed how clear our 20 week scan was. We even got a wave and a yawn which was just beautiful to see. I cant wait to meet him or her. The kicks are getting stronger and my belly is getting bigger by the day. Ill take some 'baby belly' photos soon. x

New Design

 I made my first Cafetiere cover last December as a Christmas gift to my Grandma. It dawned on me that it would be ideal as she was previously wrapping and tucking a tea towel round her coffee! It looked awfull, and didn't work very well lol. So she was over the moon when she opened her present. I made her the linen and red gingham one above with mother of pearls buttons.

 This floral one is listed in my SewRealicoul folksy shop.
 Hope you like x x
