Bump, bump, bump

Some bump, eh? Almost large enough to bead off, I reckon ;-)

This photo was taken last Monday. Today I'm 38 and a half weeks pregnant...and even bigger! Amazing how much a baby grows in the last few weeks. I think he's finally running out of room though. If he grows any larger, I'll need to be carted around in a wheelbarrow.

Despite the lack of blog posts this month, I've been madly working away on a necklace for the latest challenge on the Beading Forum. I figure that after *Nemo* arrives, I won't have much time for beading so I'm making the most of it while I can! The theme is 'Rockpool' and the piece must be monochromatic, which is a challenge in itself.

I'm hoping to have my necklace finished by the weekend, or early next week at the latest. And if I'm really lucky, the sun might actually come out long enough for me to take some photos for your viewing pleasure.

I've convinced myself that *Nemo* will stay put until I've finished. My legs will be tightly crossed until then!

On a lovely sidenote, I've been bestowed with a "One Lovely Blog Award" by the lovely Julz ! Thank you Julz, you are such a sweetie for thinking of me ♥


  1. That's quite a bump! Good luck with the delivery. Can't wait too see your rockpool necklace. Your last challenge peice inspired me to learn Dutch Spiral which was a new stitch to me.

  2. Thank you Sarah! The big day isn't too far away (hopefully!) Thanks for letting me know that my last necklace inspired you to learn Dutch Spiral...I'm so pleased! :D It's a wonderful stitch, and open to so many possibilities/variations ;)

  3. Oh sweetie I'm dying to know how you're doing and whether your bump, bump, bump as turned into a barely there now!!?? ;-)

  4. I can only say: I'M GLAD FOR YOU !!! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
