Summer House Exchange

I received the most gorgeous summer house exchange from Joan on Saturday. Take a look!My first ever tin! Joan also made me a project bag, a chicken pin cushion and thread drops! And...is if that wasn't enough, a PS Santa with the fabric and floss to stitch it, oh, and some mints too which i notice arent in the picture but that's because DH stole them as soon as i showed him LOLThank-you so much Joan, i love this package you put together for me! It was a great treat to open on Saturday.

The sun is out here! Woo hoo! Makes a nice change, July has been pretty disappointing so far but the last week has been warm and sunny! Im hoping to leave work early today to enjoy it whilst it lasts! My friend is cooking dinner tonight for a group of us which should be good.

In pregnancy news ive only been sick once in the last week! Had a midwife appointment on Friday and heard the baby's heartbeat which was nice and reassuring :) 17 weeks now!

What a wonderful exchange! Exciting news on the pg, major congratulations. If it's any consolation, I couldn't stitch for 9 months, I just had no ooomph at all. First few months I just slept every chance I could and the last few months I didn't have the energy. You take care of that wee little one...So happy for you!
