A clutch and a pregnancy update

Somehow my puter doesn't want me to upload pictures from my camera... So the Harry Potter style wand tutorial I made this week will have to wait!

I did LOTS of crafts but they are all for swaps, the cupcake purse is for the rockabilly swap but I think my partner doesn't check my blog so I need to show you:

I've used my labels! yay!

It's the same fabric as my daughter's cupcake dress :) Now I don't have any left!
And it's the first time I add a zipper to something :P

Else I wanted to show you how my cloth cubes are doing... I'm almost done with the appliqué part and the rest will get done pretty quickly once I get my ass of the puter and back at sewing.

On the pregnancy side, I saw the physiotherapist today. She gave me a belt so my hips are not too loose. I've actually napped with it and it's not annoying at all. I feel improvement already even when I'm not wearing it! How great?
She also used some ultrasound on my knee, which is too flexible and the point of my rotule bone is somehow kicking on the other bone which is what hurts on top of the inflammation. I also got an exercise to do (which is easy and painless) So there's hope ladies! I might be able to sleep well tonight!

I got my result from the blood take... my iron is very low (like it did for the previous pregnancy) so I'll have to take supplement. Hopefully there's that bio grocery that sell some kind of a grape syrup that does the thrick so I don't have to take those nasty iron pills that are as big as my palm! The syrup is expensive but very worth it! If I don't get my iron level higher I'll have to give birth at the hospital, ew!

But yeah, no wonder why I'm so tired, being borderline anemiac. Oh, but I love you, little thing that stoles my vitamin intake! hehe

I have an ultrasound next week, too! I don't need it but since the BF missed them all I wanted him to see one, so the midwife asked for a placenta check on the paper, even if we know the placenta is at the right place and the baby head down :)


  1. Wow! That purse is amazing. I would be jumping around with excitement if I received that in a swap:)

    Good luck with all things pregnancy related^^

  2. The clutch looks so nice! I love the inside lining.
    I always want to do more crafty things but I am no where as good as you!
    ps love the labels
    check out the blog if you get a chance!

  3. Love love love!! And I'm so glad you are able to get some relief now. I know how much the pain has been bugging you. Soon enough we'll get to see the newest addition! I can't wait!!!

  4. I sooooo love your crafts! This is such a cute clutch! I'm happy that you can sleep better now, and that you can take an alternative to the iron pills (I remember the smell of it when my mom took them years ago! blarght)! Just two months left, wow! :o) Will yu have your bay at home? That's super!

    Kisses and love from us.

  5. Adorable and I love the labels! Glad to hear the pregnancy is going well. Take good care of yourself!
