I am expecting!! (well, WE are)

Hi all,

I have been non-present lately. Not many blog posts from me...

But it has a really, REALLY good reason:
I am pregnant - yaaaayyyyy!!!
Today is 8+4.
We expect to become parents in the end of October

And consequently I am tired - mostly in the evenings, when I have time to quilt and read blogs, alternatively write my own. And sometimes I am nausious, but that part is fortunately not so bad :) I think that many of you are mothers already and know what I am talking about?

Just as a side note: We have been trying in 3 years, this last year with blessed help from a public fertility clinic. It turned out, that we could never have done it by ourselves...
Thank God for the 3 free public fertility tries here in Denmark - I shall pay my silly high taxes with gratitude (at least the coming year)!

Dangerous virtual fabrics!

Virtual fabric shops are dangerous places for a person as easy to tempt as me!!
I have discovered Etsy through many of the other wonderful blogs out there, and it has cost me.

Admitted: not huge amounts, but a little drip here, another tiny drop there... it all sums up :)
Wanna see what I have gotten in the mail so far???

3 absolutely authentic Japanese fabrics from sonatine

These hand dyed beauties can be found at stichindye, handmade lovlies from America.
Very rustique and unique.

Now, I still await the mailman to bring me my fabric from Ink & Spindle in Australia!

The only problem I have with all this international shopping is the cost of shipping it all to me!! I cannot have too small orders: the shipping will cost more, but I cannot afford too large orders either (and I do not want to place large orders).

Well... That is a minor problem, I recognize :) For now I am happy with my virtual prey.
And watch out, out there - it is a dangerous place *giggle*
