A swap parcel, a quick baby update and some woolly goodness :-)

Hi guys.
How are we all today? Have we all put out heating on yet? It is getting rather cold down here now But the sun is still shining too so we mustn't complain must we lol.

Firstly I would like to say a rather belated thank you to Beki. Back in august I signed up for her pincushion swap and was lucky enough to be paired up with the lovely beki herself.
So anyway, last week I received my swap parcel......

A lovely big pin cushion which sit's perfectly on the arm of my sofa and of course a wheel of pins to go with it. A nice selection of fabric scraps to play with and a quarter of CK boats fabric. A quilting magazine which I Have never seen before, can't wait to take a look through it (I'm hoping that now river's at school full time I might get a bit more time to do these things lol), a yummy little scrapbooking kit which I know somebody had his eye on so I've had to hide that just now And well I was sure there was a bar of chocolate in there somewhere but hmmmmm I wonder where that's gone hahaha :-)
So Thanks again beki I hope you loved your parcel as much as I loved yours.

Ok so a quick baby update. I'm afraid there really isn't that much to tell at the moment. I had my 16 week check up last week and we listened to baby's heartbeat which was all good and I got my 20 week scan date thorough which will be on November 9th so I shall be looking forward to that.
Oh and we are now the proud new owners of..........

Which is now safely stored away in the attic so that's one less thing to worry about.

And The woolly goodness ......... well how better to relax on a cold evening than with a ball of two of wool. And with having a couple of friends who are also pregnant I decided that it might be a good idea to start making a few bits and pieces now so here's the pile so far..........

Wich will soon be joined by this ......................

Just as soon as I complete it's border lol.

Well I think That's about it for now. I'm gonna head off and try and visit a few of you before I stop for luch.

Have a lovely rest of the week and I'll speak to you again soon.

Nice pram!
The blankets are lovely!

Okay...now I am jealous! How cool would it be to be able to make an adorable cap like that! Oh how I wished you lived next door & I could run over & have you teach me! You are way too amazing! But you are inspiring me! Maybe I should look around to try to find someone to teach me!

Are you going to find out at 2o weeks if you are having a girl or boy? i like the torture of waiting & I can barley stand to not even know what you are having! :) So I don't know how I will kmake it the whole way myself...but I will. :)

LOVE your cutiest stroller! I have such an oldie & it is so out of style from Annie just six little years ago but I am sure I will just keep using it since this IS my last babe...I mean five would for sure kill me :) Four will only knock me out for a few months....FOUR KIDS!!! What was I thinking :) Oh well ...fun to see what you are up to...lovely pincushion! Why did everyone get skillz but me :) Take Care Karen!!!

Hey Girl,
Okay, Libbie was telling me you were going to find out on Tuesday. So, PINK or BLUE? Or are you keeping it a secret. And Lib is so right, four will knock her out for a few months... I think Bo has that effect on people!

Have a wonderful weekend,
