– This week is sewing my ass off week (I wish it worked like that, I’d sew every week). My fabric stash is small but my cupboard space is smaller and so now I know that it was worth saving all those pink fabrics for so long I can put them to good use. Smocks, pants, oh the plans! The next blog post should be very cute indeed.
– Sewing is the craft of choice around here because…sob…carpal tunnel has hit. I had it before pregnancy so I wasn’t surprised to get it now but I was slightly surprised that pregnancy carpal tunnel is like having your hands run through a mincer. Wrists that feel like every bone has been broken, burning fingers all night long. So no knitting until I give birth! I’m not impressed with that at all.
– My belly has exploded. I look Quite Pregnant. A friend dropped by yesterday and her eyes nearly fell out of her head. Yes, I get it. I got big fast. I’ve noticed. Dave has been called on several times to help me out of my chair. I call myself the Hungry Hippo now. I’ll shock you with a photo sometime.
– The best part of nesting has finally arrived – the urge to bake. There’s a chocolate cake ready and waiting for me to ice it. I think that if I turn into a baking fool though it might be time to invest in a proper cake mixer. The hand mixer, while adequate, gets a bit tricky to manuveur when you’re trying to hold a tea towel over the (too small) bowl to stop splatters. The tea towel sagged too close to the mixer blades and….one big fat mess in 3 nanoseconds.
