Merry Christmas

It's Christmas Eve and I am 38 weeks pregnant. Have I had the baby, haven't I? I don't know because I am writing this post in advance. No offense to my lovely readers, but I have other things to be doing on Christmas Eve (like baking and putting my feet up and trying to find something nice to wear tomorrow!).

Anyway, regardless of my current baby-carrying status, I'd still like to wish you all 
a Merry Christmas 2015!

And a few more Christmassy miniatures because why not?

Still crafting

I may have had to put a hold on the miniatures for now while I await my impending new arrival, but I'm still crafting when time allows. Here is my first ever attempt at a cardigan and booties, and my second attempt at a baby hat (the first one did not end well!).

I cannot decide if my favourite part is the TEENY TINY pompom on the hat.
Seriously the cutest thing I've ever made, it's no more than 2cm across.

Or the world's happiest piggy buttons. They are so excited!

Anyway, for a first attempt I'm quite happy with how it all turned out. Baby will be able to wear this a few times and it will hopefully stay together for as long as needed. Plenty of little mistakes in there, but plenty of learning done too. Thankfully my mother, who is an awesome knitter, has made me some outfits I feel confident will outlast the baby's size stage.

Cheerio for a short time

Now I'm 37 weeks pregnant and officially off work, it's getting hard to ensure I can make it to the post office with any regularity. Plus I expect the impending arrival of my favourite new miniature to be a bit of a distraction!
So I've decided to temporarily close my Etsy shop for the time being. I haven't set a grand re-opening date, but it certainly will re-open once I feel like I am getting the hang of this motherhood business. Please keep checking out the blog as I will announce it here first.
Thanks for your well wishes during this time. I am equally excited and daunted by the upcoming change to our lives, but really I can't wait to become a mum. Well, I'd appreciate being able to finish my Christmas dinner in peace, but once that's done, bring on the baby!
Merry Christmas from me and the bump!
