Thanks so much for the all the well wishes and comments lately, it makes it easier to manage the not so swell days/weeks/months of being pregnant. And WOW I can't believe it's 60+ degrees today!! After all the cold & snow of the last few weeks, I don't want this warm spell to ever end!!!
I really am glad tho because it prompted me to get out the house & take kiddo swimming. Now I NEED to be in the pool, but I'm using not having a swimsuit that fits as my excuse, lol. I'm just enjoying the sunshine and being able to hang out indoors in short sleeves.
I have been working on some thangs lately when my energy allows, no maternity wear surprisingly, just not in the mood - I've been sewing for others. I made kiddo-on-the-way AKA "Deuce," a baby quilt (gasp) and a floor blanket. I'll post those pics soon.
I made kiddo a pair of plaid slacks and a mattching purse, and now I'm making my little sister a suit from McCall's 5814 and BurdaStyle 6012. The skirt is done and it's really cute. I really impressed myself by following through on a non-envelope Burda pattern, now if I could just finish a BWOF.....
On My Mind...
In the past few months the blogosphere has blessed us with stories of the bitter and the sweet. I'm not yet ready to unguard myself and get too personal, but I truly admire those who share the good, the bad, and the ugly in their lives and remind us of the strength one can possess within and the love & support that the community can provide (reminds me that there are some good souls still in existence on this earth).
A couple of women have really inspired me lately and I just want to pay homage and THANK them for being so inspirational and sharing the blessings that can come from a painful situation - on top of being super creative and super classy ladies - OKAAAAAAAAYYYY! (lol). I don't know about y'all but they have left a sweet taste in my mouth.
Life Happens Be Positive
Domestic Diva's Disasters
So I am awarding them with the:
Now this is my own personal choice to do this thing but if you know of a blogger who deserves this award spread it around so we can share those positive vibes.
Let me get this out of the way... Although I haven't worn it yet, here is Simplicity 3678, preggified. I just added 1.5 inches at the waistline to make room for Deuce. My sister says it's too bright for the current season, but I NEED SUNSHINE WHEREEVER I CAN GET IT FROM. I am a SAD sufferer. (That's why I need to get to the west hubby OK?? Are you listening?? hello???? lol.)
I leave you with a song for now.
I'd post a freebie, but support this sis!
