Bellies and give-aways




A few people have been wondering about how big my bump is getting. So here's my "halfway baked" shot taken last weekend. My belly button has since popped, so Austy's Dad's theory on that being the "done" indicator goes out the window. No, it's not twins but a perfectly on track for size singleton, who has just started giving me some serious thumps, finally visible from the outside (placenta positioning has dulled the movements for a while).


And did I mention give-away?!!


With all these pay it forwards going around, I have been very tempted, but never actually put my name in for one until Emma made the oath on her blog. How could I resist something quilty from her?! She is amazingly talented and I only dream of being as good one day.


So now as a winner on her blog, I eagerly anticipate crafty mail in the next 12m and make the same oath here as my part of the deal:


"I will send a handmade gift to 3 random people who leave a comment on this blog post. I don't know what that gift will be yet (could be quilty, woolly or stitchy) and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."


You have two weeks to get your comment in, and Austy will draw the names out on 31st August, ready for the start of Spring. International participants welcome.
