New Life

I have some news to share which is the reason for my previously slack blogging. For some time now we have been wanting to give our Princess a brother or sister so that she doesn’t keep getting so spoilt. We thought things were moving in the right direction late last year only to end in miscarriage two days after Christmas. This hit me for a six and for a little while I found it quite difficult to deal with and was having a real downer – which meant my pattern writing was put aside. As you can tell from my last post pattern writing is back on the agenda and I have some exciting news – we are expecting a new addition to our family, who is estimated to be just over 13 weeks old

(photo: 11 weeks, 5 days).

I must say that the pregnancy(ies) have meant quite slow progress in Niche preparations and sewing /pattern writing due to awful morning (or better description ALL DAY) sickness but I am hoping I am on the up and up and it doesn’t last as long as it did with Chloe (1/2 way through the pregnancy). Anyway that is the latest at Clare’s Place. The weekend Niche market was fantastic but I will blog about that later.


I hope you have been able to do what you love this week.

Congratulations on the new baby. I also had a miscarriage between my first baby and my second. It really rocked me to the core and left me feeling flat and down.

Congratulations! Morning sickness again may mean it's another girl as both my girls gave me morning sickness but my boy didn't. A glass of water and a dry biscuit before getting out of bed helped me enormously with morning sickness. Hope you're over yours soon.
