Filling out

After only 15 weeks of being pregnant I'm already having real trouble fitting into any of my clothes. None of my trousers fit now - not even my lovely loose hip hugging jeans, and most of my tops are just too short to hide my bump.

Luckily I have a sister who has kindly passed on to me a large box of her maternity clothes. Going through them was great fun - it was like having bought a huge amount of new clothes but not have to spend hours in those tiresome shops. So to thank my wonderful sister I quickly made up this card which uses up two cute miniature pieces of clothing which I saved from an old Birthday card years ago.

I've also done a tiny bit more crochet - finally updating my curious Alien pattern with a good few more foot-os (the feet are the trickest part of this pattern - but hopefully these photos will make things a little clearer).

There are some lovely photos of the little aliens that others have crocheted already up on Ravlry. If you have a Ravelry account then go and have a look here.

I think that the alien is fantabulous! That green is beautiful.

Yes, apparently your lovely weather of last weekend is making its way back to LA. Fortunately I brought my travel umbrella. :-(
