That's right - I'm feeling great! I've been cooking and sewing up a storm with the bare minimum amount of cleaning thrown in for good measure. I'm not quite back to normal though. Chocolate doesn't make me sick anymore, but I'm not enjoying it that much yet. So I've been trying a couple of pieces of chocolate each day to make sure that I don't miss a day of my old chocolate self (my husband thinks I'm an absolute nutbag!)
And I've managed to sew up a couple of new quilt designs that I've been dying to try out for a while using this gorgeous pile of fabric. I had forgotton how good it felt to sew until I started again, and then I just couldn't stop. I'm up to the hand quilting stage on one of them. Its only baby size so I should finish before I get sick of all the hand quilting.
As you know I love hand quilting with perle cotton no. 8, its nice and chunky and rustic. This is my new thimble - lovely and comfortable. I still like my old metal one, but this one never falls off. I just realised that this is only my second ever thimble. I used my metal one for over 2 years and never lost it - I don't know how that happened! And the needle I use for quilting is a chenille, size 24 (the brand I use is Scarlet Today).
I always baste my quilts with curved pins, and unlike my thimble I'm constantly losing these. I don't know where they go, but I have often have to top up my supply.
And for those of you who are interested in the bubbalicious, well here it is, busting out.
Princess Mary and I like to be pregnant at the same time, but I'm not impressed that my bump is bigger than hers and she's 5 months along with twins. What's going on there???
