Half way...

Firstly a belated Happy New Year to everyone!  I hope you all had a safe and happy Christmas and New Year's.  I've been reading everyone's blogs but I'm very slack with comments... I will make more effort with comments in 2010.  I really appreciate the comments I receive so I do need to make the effort for others.  Especially as I enjoy their blogs so much! 

Well we're more than half way now...  I had my 19 week scan a week & a half ago and everything is looking good, which is such a relief!!  I still can't believe there are 2 babies growing inside me. I'm not as big as I thought I'd be yet which makes it more unbelievable...  This photo was taken at 19 weeks - 1 & 1/2 weeks ago and I'm probably bigger now - I feel like I grow every day - but I'm still not huge.  We have chosen not to find out the sex of our little id twins, but of course we're hoping for girls (we already have a 2 year old boy).  I was looking at Corrie's blog last night and thinking that if these are boys I'll never have a little girl to sew for... I'll be so sad.  I have so much fabric in my stash that is special to me and that I want to make something for my daughter(s) one day... I really will be quite upset to not have a daughter...  but of course it's all decided already so we'll get what we've got!!  :)   Of course the most important thing is that they're healthy though, so I will be ok with sons, just sad for my sewing... there's only so many shorts you can make!  :)

I haven't been doing much sewing, I've only just started to feel normal again since about week 18-19.  The all day morning sickness was just terrible.   I'm still quite tired and a bit nauseous in the mornings, but I'm much better!   I did make a dress for myself that I have half finished... I tried it on and I need to take quite a bit of length off and make the sleeves shorter.  When clothes don't go well I can lose interest sometimes... which is what's happened... I really need to get it finished though.  And I really want to have some machine quilting lessons, I'm itching to do another quilt but the hand quilting, although lovely, takes sooooo long to do!   I'd really like to make 2 boys and 2 girls quilts that I love for my twins before they arrive!  God knows how I'll get anything done once they are here.  Although Corrie is very inspiring I'm just not sure I'm that much of a superwoman!  You're a star Corrie!  :)

I wish I was better with my blog too, I apologise for probably being the most boring blog you read... I just don't seem to have any time anymore... And I'm starting a job tomorrow so I'll have even less time!!  I'm gonig to work 5 days this week, then drop back to 2 or 3 days after that till the first week of April.  I hope I cope with it ok... I haven't worked for over 2 years!!  I thought it would be a good opportunity and could set me up with some possibilities for the future.  We'll see how it goes... anyway, I'll give it a go. 

Thank you all for your inspiration, there are so many talented women out there!!  I look forward to seeing more incredible work this year!!
