It's been a week of restless nights and lots of work for me. My 'to do' rail is still full and as yet I've only managed one little African girl's dress this week. Most night's M starts contracting after tea and has got them down to every 3 minutes before yet again they ease off and she manages a restless night's sleep. This means the rest of us as you can imagine are waiting for a phone call 24/7. These little twinnies really are playing games with us all aren't they?
So? What is on my desk today?
My 'to do' rail has....
- 5 dresses, all needing altering
- 1 pair jeans needing shortening
- a really nice pair white trousers that need shortening [or was it the owner of the trousers that was really nice? :-) ]
- a top that needs repairs
My box that I keep the cut out little dresses is now full to overflowing. Twiglet and I keep cutting out dresses from all the lovely material we've got to play with and bagging them up into dress packs.....then she has taken lots of them home with her cos just lately she has been the only one with any spare time to make them. I am desperate to delve into my box full to run a few up but something always seems to get in the way. No rush....they will get made and little African girls will always need dresses wont they?
This is the only little dress I've managed to make this week. It's number 68 for me and I've made it with a lovely yellow pillow case Elizabeth send me. I've prettied it up with some of the lovely material Sarah bought for us from Holland. I'm sure this will make one very lucky little girl smile.
I snapped this pic on Saturday and thought you'd like to see that even Boots is setting up their offers just for us....buy 2 packs of nappies get 1 free......just perfect for Grandparents expecting 3 new grandchildren within the next 5 weeks eh?
M will defiantly be having the twinnies within the next 3 weeks cos they are inducing her at 38 weeks and A should have her little boy in about 5 weeks.....ooer it makes me all excited just thinking about it :-) I can't wait.
My last pic is one of our yummy fresh tomatoes just picked....red ones, green ones and orange ones....all warm and sweet and tasting like nothing you buy in the shops......Please help yourself and enjoy one with your lunch today.
Thanks for dropping in. Please leave me a message before you pop over to visit Julia and all the other WOYWWers. Have a great week.
