August and September

Time flies when you're throwing up in the morning, and it's been a couple of months since I did a bit of a review. So here's what August and September looked like:


We found out that we are expecting again - Mia will be a big sister in April next year.


We spent a week in Sidmouth, and Mia has got over her fear of Morris Men, which is just as well really. This is Dad in Mendip kit.


There hasn't been much sewing, but what has happened has been focused on my La Passacaglia project - this photo is a month old now, so I'll do a post soon to show recent progress.

I completed my Thimbleblossoms Mini swap:




But then as August progressed, the Harry Potter swap started stressing me out a bit - with limited energy, I struggled to complete this on time - but I just managed it and sent off my interpretation of The Burrow on the deadline! I've also re-read all 7 of the books in the last few weeks. It's amazing how much I'd forgotten and how much the films leave out!


And just last weekend Autumn arrived - we visited Wrest Park and left with a very exhausted 19-month-old - perfect! And picked 75 kilos of apples from my parents' tree.



I finished off September with a burst of energy and made a small embroidery to celebrate a friend's wedding. Hopefully this burst of energy is the start of better times ahead!

You still managed to do a lot, with being morning sick and taking care of Mia! Lovely stuff, as usual.
