Maternity Plans

Thanks for your kind words on my dress!  Another month has flown by, and I thought it was high time that I shared my plans for maternity sewing.

I don’t plan to go too crazy, since I’m almost six months pregnant (whoa…when did that happen?) and there’ll be limited longevity to these garments, but there are still a few things on my list before I start sewing for Ms. Baby!

Cara Maternity T-Shirt

I made one of these when I was pregnant with Cheeks and really liked it, and also recently made a long sleeved Christmas version (matching family PJs:  the guys each got one, too!).  This particular iteration will be in a mint thermal wool jersey that I recently picked up from Fabric Mart (which was a bit hard to photograph):

It’s July! Summer Updates

I’ve been gone for a spell; ah, the ebb and flow which is my blogging.  I’m either on it and posting every week, or *poof* gone.  Well, we’ve been a bit busy since I last posted in June!

So, what’s up, Buttercup?

After three months of looking for a new house, we put in our fourth offer and it finally stuck!  FINALLY!  I’d say I’m probably most excited about this at the moment…

Amidst this craziness, I was lucky enough to be able to attend PR Weekend and got to meet and room with the delightful Meigan of Get My Stitch On.  <3

April Ruminations, May Plans

Been a bit of a quiet blogging month, but since I actually set some goals for once, thought it would be nice to follow up!  To recap, here’s what I was hoping to accomplish in April:

  • Sewaholic Minoru
  • 2 Oliver + S Bucket Hats for Cheeks
  • Jalie Cora running tights
  • McCall’s 6873 for Cheeks
  • Simplicity 8291
  • Unblogged plan:  Blue Calla Iris for my mom’s birthday gift

While writing that post, these didn’t seem like THAT much work, but looking at it now:  bahaha…like I was going to get all of that done.

So, how many did I finish?

April Plans

Happy April Fools Day!  I met my sweet husband on this day 6 years ago…so glad we met for that blind date.  <3  Happy Date-iversary, honey bunny!

I haven’t done a planning post since February (1 2), so thought it was high time!  The new goal is to post a little something every month, but we’ll see how it goes.

I did way more blogging than sewing in March.  And couch sleeping after Cheeks went to bed…lots of couch sleeping.  Though, I did manage to finally get some work done on the Minoru I had planned to sew up at the February retreat.

The Retreat

This past weekend, and the awesome sewing retreat, came and went so quickly.  I didn’t get a lot of photos because I was busy sewing, but thought I’d write an update on how the event went and report on what I was able to finish!

I’m pretty sure I packed up my whole damn sewing room.  I even took my sewing chair, as was suggested by my sister in law.  This is what 3 machines that sew in some way, plus half a sewing room, look like in a hatchback:

See that last photo?  That’s my personal stuff for the weekend.  The rest was allllll for sewing.
