Thank you so much for your congratulations and encouraging words, especially all you, experienced mums! It's a slightly scary step to the unknown but we can't wait to see who this new person is. Only four months left of the old life...
But there's still time and so above are some new offerings of the Rara Avis variety. They'll be listed shortly.
I was reading in Jenny Balfour-Paul's Indigo about the belief in some cultures that pregnancy could interfere with successful indigo vat preparation and dyeing. She reports that
in Bhutan it was thought that if a pregnant woman dyed yarn in an indigo vat the baby in her womb would 'steal' the colour from the dye pot.
I've done a lot of indigo-ing lately and haven't noticed any colour theft. Is the little one going to have a passion for blue, I wonder.
