May 2011, bring you what you desire.
I've loved catching up with you. My heart skips a beat whenever I see your diamond hexagons. I would love to start something similiar, but must finish one of my ongoing projects first! Did I tell you I ordered some fabric from Saints and Pinners after reading your post? It's the first time I've bought fabric online. Must post some photos of it. So thanks for that. Have a good week.

I can appreciate where you are coming from as we have been trying since we got married five years ago in September. Obviously I managed to have our little boy and the 7 months of joy he gave us is priceless to me but after many ups and downs I am at a point where a feel the need to stop trying to achieve this feat and just be me...just for a little while...xxx

Hi Clare, I've been thinking of you all week since I first read your post, wondering how you must be feeling and what I could say. And couldn't come up with the words, except to wish you a very heartfelt *good luck* and lots of love for the new year, hope it's everything you hope for sweetheart;)
Hugs
