plus one

From late Summer sunshine to the edge of Winter without a blog post. Not like me to be so quiet! I have had good reason, though:

expecting baby no. 3!!

I am expecting baby no. 3, due at the beginning of May next year. I couldn't be more excited, but have had to take a bit of a blog break due to chronic morning sickness for the past couple of months. I'll spare you the details!

My boy and girl are beside themselves with the anticipation of having a new little brother or sister. The girl wants a girl called Lily or Milly and the boy wants a boy called Frank or Toto! I'm looking forward to doing a bit of small-scale sewing, naturally.

In the meantime, I have a lot of catching up to do. Hundreds of unread blog posts, reopening the shop and sorting out some new stock, plus the small matter of preparing for the wemake craft fair on 5th December. To say I am behind is something of an understatement!

  2. What exciting news! I'm so happy for you and your family. Will you find out whether it is Lily or Toto? We did with number three as we had two girls and wanted to know if it would be three. Hope you are feeling better and moving into the next phase which can be much easier. Take care sweetie xo

  13. Hi Helen!

    That is such good news. Congratulations!! I was wondering why you wasn't blogging. I hope the morning sickness eases. When I was carrying my rascal, toast and butter or chips helped with the morning sickness.

    Take care and I hope to see you at the fair.

  20. Congratulations, fabulous news!!! Sorry to hear about the morning sickness - it's the worst isn't it? I remember spending most of the We Make fair we did hoping I wasn't going to turn green and chuck up but mercifully I seemed to get a day off from it that day.
