And the Baby is.......

............... A NO SHOW....

no tummy ache, no back ache... nothing, nill, nix



I tried to look up other words for Nothing...
 when I googled it I got a link to a Facebook page....
. on NOTHING..... how about that????

So I am waiting, waiting.......

'It' was due on Sunday..
.......... and my brother (who had a birthday yesterday) was due heart surgery tomorrow.... 

baby is postponing itself until 'It' decides on an opportune date... 

and my brothers operation has been postponed till further notice ...

.............. well as you can imagine I haven't been able to sit still 

and I WANT TO SWEAR at those people who ring my phone even though I am on a DO NOT CALL register...

... and so I had coffee.....

and mulched my roses.....


don't they look pretty.... I should go and pick some....

Excuse me..... 

I'll have a coffee and go and pick some



that's better... they are lovely and happy....


hold on ......

... look at the lovely ginger jar I am using for the roses...


isn't that dragon just awesome... you can see the jar has a big dent in it... 

still beautiful.... made of some sort of metal...

that's my treasure.. used to belong to my Mum..... aren't I lucky to have it now?

....... so once the roses were done, 

I had a coffee

and then I had a wash, 

 and watched some Needleturn DVD's

whilst I sipped some coffee

and did some of my new quilt......


and some stitching.... oh no ... you can't see that one in-case Sharon is peeping.... but this will give you a general idea..... but you should pop over to her and see her stitching.. we are making the same quilt and she has done so much....


then a quick cuppa
and then I sewed on some eyes


I learnt to do it on the machine....


not sure if it is quicker, or stronger.
but I have the attachment
so why not

I think I need a coffee


Melbourne Cup day.. the race that stops a nation here... I missed it!!

but there is time to bet on WHEN and WHAT 
pink or blue and what date?

I say a boy too, but think he will be bigger at 8lb 5oz and he will be born tomorrow! (but I didn't pick the winner of the cup either!) Just remember- all good things come to those who wait!

I think you need to talk to that tummy and let it know that there is a warm and cozy quilt and lots of love just waiting for him/her to make and appearance

Kathleen said...

Love the roses, so maybe, it will be a girl.

Hillbilly Tonya said...

That little one is already showing his/her independence, huh?

Love the dragon. Your new project is looking good and I love the eyes, how nifty to sew on the machine.
Mmmm Can I say, I don't think that is a cup of coffee in the last pic?

Lets hope he wants out real soon ,maybe tonight ;-0 Gorgeous roses and the container is lovely too especially since it was your Mom's .You always make me smile so thanks for that. hugs Sheila
