In waiting ....

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.
I have officially gone into the realm of being 'overdue' my baby.
 The due date was yesterday and still no signs of the bubba yet.
I've been reassured lots by friends and family, especially for a first child its not uncommon.

So while I wait, I've been busy...
My next door neighbour was also due her baby on exactly the same date as me, but ended up having a little boy on the 21st December. A gorgeous little boy called Christopher.
I had already bought a very cheap but plain pack of 10 bibs for £3.00 which I sat and made hexagons to decorate them with. I'm super pleased with how they turned out.

Together with a little pair of handmade slippers and a taggy comforter from flannel and fleece, all wrapped up in blue tissue paper it made a lovely little package for a newborn.

I've also crocheted a hat, made numerous cross-stitch pictures to decorate the nursery with and a patchwork  hot-water bottle cover (to take to the hospital).
 More postings soon!!

At least I know that the baby will be here at least within the next 12 days!!
Already seems like I've been pregnant forever, but mustn't complain I've had a very healthy pregnancy, with few symptoms.  I've been very active throughout and after waiting for the best part of over 20 years for this opportunity a few more days won't hurt xxx
