Henna tummies


Am absolutely in love with preggy belly henna art! Think I will have to get some henna and decorate my big belly :) 28 days til his estimated due date, starting to feel very spiritual and holistic about my baby belly, its hard not to when you are carrying another little person in your body. Am going to miss feeling him moving, though I can't wait to hold him in my arms.

Mendhi henna, :)

Bookmark completed :)

It was only a little project, in the midst of moving house, and driving 14 hours interstate. However I'm really happy with how it turned out, and Joshuas mum, Debbie, really liked her present - which is the most important thing :) All up it took about 5 hours, including construction.
The pattern is an altered version of this one -

A great pattern and a great site.

Back.

 

Hope you enjoy, currently working only on little projects, an waiting til I find a pattern that really speaks to me before I start a big one.

Getting really worried now...

Ok...dont panic, breathe - my current mantras. We have 8 days til we are supposed to start moving out and 15 days til we have to be out, completely finished, and driving to canberra.
We dont have a lease or a property yet!
We have viewed about 5 bizzilion now. Every single rental in the right areas that are on realestate.com, and still nothing. Our first preference has been umming and ahing over our application for almost two weeks now, and one of our very last preferences is the only one still available. Its nice...I like it. But it is tiny, and unless joshua gets a normal 9-5 job (not likely) I'm going to end up killing him trapped in that little house. We are still waiting to hear back about 5 others. Why is renting so difficult!
To top it off, all the new properties that are coming up now arent available til after we have to move.
Please, lots of prayers and happy wishes for us, we need all the luck we can get.

Toys made for buttons hanging mobile :) josh is making the frame.

(stuffing holes not yet sewn, so excuse their gaps )

Oh and help! I need a weekend long project to make for Debbie (Joshuas mum) for her birthday on Tuesday, ideas please!
I also have to come up with costumes for me and josh based on favourite childhood characters, I was thinking cat in the hat for josh, then its just a hat, bowtie and gloves, but what the heck am I going to wear? I'll be 8 months preg by then. was thinking a big spider incorporated into a hat, as charlotte, but I'm not sure how to go about it...ideas please!!!

My first attempt at an origami crane, not brilliant lol. I want to paint a large piece of paper with scales and glitter and fold a 'dragon' crane to hang in buttons room, with goodly eyes. Bit more practice required I think lol.

Currently attempting to embroider all the seams of buttons quilt, photos to follow :) It's only taken me 2 months lol. Getting close to completion now, am still trying to source beautiful green buttons, ribbons and trims to add, I hope he likes it.
I'm also finishing off some softies, and Joshua is making a wooden mobile frame to hang them off, am planning to make several different ones and change them round regularly so he doesn't get bored. Having a baby to make things for is awesome, the range of things to make is so much more fun.

First entry, new blog!

28 weeks pregnant today, and sewing projects in full swing. Have made muslin wraps, water proof play mat - simply for the conveinience of having button be able to play nudie rudie and all accidents are easily taken care off - also, babies need to paint too, its just messier lol. Am currently in the midst of a nappy bag, toys to hang off a mobile (considering doing a second mobile to mix and match with origami hanging from it) and am embroidering a baby crazy quilt, which I shall post photos of next time I'm on.

This is not a blog to see how many friends I can add or to talk about much other then my crafty projects, pregnancy and being a pagan mama. I do all kinds of crafts but tend to stick with embroidery and sewing most often, though I will try my hand at just about anything. Intend to add many groups and people with similar crafty natures.

I'm a Aussie, hippy, pagan, seamstress, craft nut and home maker, with a lovely partner and a baby on the way, living in the heart of the Adelaide Hills.

Feel free to add me,
-Claire
