5 days late......

Well I'm now 5 days overdue! and Waiting....although tonight as I'm writing this I do feel some pains so maybe all the baking I did today has had some impact? My Husband bought this great baking book yesterday I love it all the recipes are simple & I had most of the ingredients which is a bonus the only one I was missing was the Semolina so today I made English muffins, Apple & Cinnamon Muffins & a Blackberry tart....I'm not normally this productive in the baking department & I'm putting down to nesting....and I love that the measurements are universal! Also I completed my Nursing Apron made with some Amy butler fabric.The tutorial is from & I've attached the link as it was very easy to follow & for a beginner sewer It turned out great. Hope to have some baby news soon....x
