First 2009 finish

Here's my first finish of 2009! A wee pillow for my friend Lori's new baby girl.It's a Lizzie Kate design. The fabric is kinda eastery but i thought it looked pretty and birth is all about new life etc etc so i thought why not! Speaking of birth, today is my due date! Unfortunately there is no sign of baby, not even a twinge. Although my pelvis is so unbelievably sore that i could barely get into bed last night and walking is incredibly painful today. I do have SPD though so maybe this is it back with baby getting lower. Or maybe its because i walked/trotted to my car too fast last night to get out of the rain. Whatever the reason, i hardly slept because of it last night and cried getting into bed. Woe is me LOL

Here's hoping this is my last pregnancy bump photo! Taken last week

Just want to thank Anna for the beautiful handmade card that just arrived for Christmas along with some overdyed skein of thread. So kind of you! Thank-you. I already have a project earmarked for the thread!

Oh, ive joined the stitch a mirabilia blog to inspire me to work on my Feather Fairy this year. This will be a weekly SAL.

All the best for 2009 and hope all goes well for you over the next few weeks and that baby T arrives soon. Although my nephew was 10 days late and Iona was 9 days late too! You may still have to wait a little while!

I think all the babys are coming late at the moment I am sure they have been informed about just how cold it is on the outside.

Look forward to hearing soon that he/she has arrived safely.

Very cute finish, and I like the fabric you chose I don't think it looks to Eastery. Hopefully you'll have your new one soon. I remember at the end of my pregnancy I was soooooo ready for it to be over. Good luck,
Sue
