all too much...

I haven't felt like doing much at all lately, blogging included. I'm too afraid of sounding like a tired & cranky pregnant woman. Nobody wants to listen to me whinge & carry on... so I save that for the husband. There's only three & a half weeks to go & my stamina is dissappearing.
My days at the moment are spent pottering about, a little crafting, a little cooking & lots of organising. The hospital bag is packed & all last minute baby items have been purchased, just in case the little man decides he's coming early.

We made a trip up to Melbourne on the weekend, where I was treated with a lovely afternoon tea. It was so good to catch up with the girls one last time before I become a mama. Everyone bought a plate of something delicious & we sat & chatted our little hearts out in the back garden. We were spoilt with gorgeous gifts too & everyone helped decorate three onesies for him to wear.
The crochet hooks have been quite active, with amigurumi animals & the ripple blanket on the go. These booties & helmet were whipped up too. The helmet is my own pattern & I'm going to post it soon... I just want to make sure it fits a newborn head before I do.
Crochet is definately my craft of choice right now. I can sit on the couch or curl up in bed & still be very productive. Top stuff.

Hey, I'm tired & cranky and I'm not even pregnant! But I do remember those last few weeks of pregnancy so well. All mine were late so it was a long haul. Hang in there, it won't be long before it will all change and your new little sweet baby will be in your arms. Rest up and crochet your little heart out. xo loving the helmet..

your crochet is top notch...nest away, rest up & pamper yourself.

Nearly there. In the last few weeks I felt like I'd been pregnant forever but then you get your lovely little one and it's all forgotten. Good luck and enjoy the feverish pre bubba crafting.

Sounds like time to slow down and ponder a bit....The last few weeks can seem longer than the whole rest of the pregnancy...

I'm with Jodie, those last weeks were long ones, but I got a lot of crafting in too! I love your crochet. It is my craft of choice too. I figure I will crochet in Winter and Embroider in Summer - or try to Embroider...

Where did you find that bootie pattern? And I would be interested in the helmut pattern too! So many of our friends are having babies and I think a handmade present is so special. :)

I want a growed up version of the helmet!
(actually I'd like booties to match too)
