Well what a few weeks!
More place mats woven (and awaiting hemming, washing – oh sorry, “Wet finishing”, photographing and posting on Etsy ). The mohair shawl was washed, finished, fluffed up and photographed. I had thought of putting it on Etsy, but ended up speaking to my friend Nula of Noolibird, and she persuaded me to try NOTHS, so that is where it has been listed, on “Not On The High Street” of the UK, just to see what the results are.
Anyway – to cut a long story short, it turns out Nula and I are both pregnant to more or less the same degree! I’d planned on telling her that I’d be wanting to buy some of her cot quilts, babygros and baby pjs…but being very Irish (and superstitious), there’s no naming or buying things until it’s out and healthy
and we can see it’s got all the fingers and toes etc it should have.
To make matters even more amusing, another friend in Germany (another weaver) is also pregnant…due 5 days before me – ha! Full moon’s have a lot to answer for!
My mum (who’s a retired midwife) says accidents happen in threes!!!
