Yes, still waiting.

Today is our first day of Winter. I am still baking baby number 4. I will be 39 weeks tomorrow.
I was 39weeks when lil J was born (pictured above).
I feel pretty big but feeling like bub is quite low and getting kicks right in the middle up high.
I am hoping that there will be something happening tomorrow.
In the meantime there was lots of nesting: i.e. cleaning and washing.
We attended a wedding a few Sundays ago and gee it was lovely. The food was great and best of all we too all the kids with us. The only shoes I had which fit my feet were heels and I totally regret it. Anyway, it was fun being barefoot and pregnant at the reception.

I cut up a turtle neck top for Miss 4.5 but have procrastinated in finishing it. I want to double the fabric as the knit is rather light and not warm enough for our cold weather.
I've only got around to making some dresses for her naked Barbie dolls, lol.

So watch this space because I'm sure it will be rather eventful once our last baby makes his entry into this world.

Hugs and kisses,



  1. Ugh, the last days are always the toughest. Hang in there, friend! Can't wait to see the new baby!!!

  2. wow you are so close Kim! Best of luck inthe coming days...

    P.S.) I sent you an email a week back - did you get it?

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…

Janome 19110

Meet my new baby, Janome 19110. Ok so maybe it needs a pet name but for now I sit at my sewing table in awe of her. She is a little bit of an upgrade to my current Janome 521 which has been having a bit of a tanty as of late. This one has 50 built-in stitches and 3 types of buttonholes. Did I mention they are automatic buttonholes! Awesome. There are the 7 piece feed dogs which should mean that my fabric won't get sucked under and hopefully will move much more smoothly AND the bobbin shouldn't get caught inside (unlike my old machine).

That being said there's not much else fancy about her as she was one of the bottom range of computerised sewing machines. You could get fancier but I know myself and I'm not running any type of sweatshop in my office I tell you. I am all about keepin' it real my friends (most of the time).

I started off trying a few stitches and trying the buttonhole foot.
It sewed the first two parts and then it stopped. My heart dropped. What jus…
