Joining Ginny for Yarn Along again this week!
I haven’t been doing much crochet this week- just a few more rows onto the square for my neighbour… I’ve been taken up with painting (see previous post! – and I’m partaking in the Lineanograta Illustration eCourse) and I’m almost too tired to even crochet by the time I flop down late at night.
On the reading front, just as I needed something to read, a parcel arrived from a dear friend of mine, with this book (Birth Without Violence), this morning! I have wanted to read this for so long, and I reckon as I approach my third trimester on my fifth baby, maybe it would be good to read it now 😉 …
And there is also a lot of reading with smallies going on here too (we have had a complete weather change: from balmy warm days to rain and wind, so we are all indoors a lot more) My children love the Oliver Jeffers “Boy” series:- what gorgeous illustrations and funny, touching stories!

I made an apple tart for our smallest son last night, then had visitors (They could smell it cooking, we reckon) so that was scoffed rather quickly, and so I had to make him another. So there is a pot of tea on the table and a slice of that second tart beckoning me now… enjoy looking through the other “Yarn Along”s!
emily! i don’t know how i missed that you were pregnant with your 5th baby! oh my! congratulations! my sister has 5 children and i always felt that if my husband and i weren’t blessed with kids that would be ok because i have them. they gave me a gift on mothers day! such sweethearts. well i’m so happy for you and i pray your family will always be blessed!
Rita, I’d missed Emily’s upcoming baby, too, so don’t feel bad. Are you using a midwife? My daughter did and they were wonderful. She didn’t read that book, but I think her births would qualify as non-violent. What a lovely way to bring a child into the world.
I still love the colors on your block. I’ll get my yarn along post up later.
We have an Oliver Jeffers book and I love his illustrations. I find the boy and penguin so endearing.
I am thinking if I could paint pictures that are as gorgeous as yours, I would not crochet either!
Love you work, you are an extremely talented woman.
Best wishes with your third trimester
this is all so DELICIOUS!!!!!
