I have been home with Amelie for a week now and we are having trouble getting her to settle in. She sleeps relatively well during the day, but spends most of the night grunting and crying away in bed, keeping both DH and myself awake. The last few night I don't think I have had more than a few hours sleep. She wants to be fed every two hours and sometimes every hour, even though at each feed, she is completely full. I know that I had all the same problems with Aurelia, but a 2 o'clock in the morning it's had to recall those times. In a few weeks, I am sure that she will be fine and settle down quite well, but in the meantime it's really difficult to see that.
I have been stitching a real lot in the last week and in hospital, but as they are all secret stitching, there are no photos. I have finished my stitching for the Hooked On Exchanging floss tag exchange. I have actually stitched a lot more than I had to, because a small floss tag looked like a very inadequate exchange item. I am almost three quarters of the way through my Hooked On Exchanging Christmas ornament exchange item as well. I am a little disappointed with it, as I was waiting on some hand-dyed threads to arrive from an ONS, but they still haven't arrived, so I have had to substitute DMC threads.
Finally, my Lizzie*Kate 'Bless The Baby' is just waiting on one thread to arrive with my order and then it's completed. I made a big boo boo with this one, I ordered a JABC leaping bunny button to sew on it, but it's too big. I should have ordered the smaller one. To order another one, I have to pay too much postage to bother (postage is the same if I order a single button or a huge package of items). So I have a proposal, is anyone willing to swap a JABC bunny button (NH1009.L) for a smaller JABC bunny button (NH1009.S)?
I am about to make a start on my Fair & Square Round #10 design. It requires some Vicki Clayton Hand-Dyed Threads, but with the Australian dollar so weak, the cost has become prohibitive, so once again I am going to have to substitute with DMC. So I apologise to my partner in advance.
