My latest stash acquisitions are actually a gift from one of my friends. She thought of me and brought me fabric from Japan! And you're probably wondering why she's given me a bunch of baby-boy themed fabric... Well...
Time for a confession. It's been a bit quiet around here on the blog, but in real life, it's been a lot more chaotic. See, I've been holding something back from you all. If you know me in person, then you can see what's going on, but I didn't want my life's issues to spill over into the blog. I try to keep the blog focused on my work: knitting, illustrating, sewing, quilting, etc. But, I'm about to shift gears, and I wanted you to know ahead of time. As I look around the blogosphere, I've noticed that I'm at that age... that age where bloggers who are in my age group are starting families. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pregnant. I'm very pregnant.
And, that's why I haven't really been sewing for myself. It's been crazy. This will be our first child, and we are over the moon to be almost at the third trimester. As a nice science project-type thing, I started taking my measurements on a weekly basis starting from the early weeks of pregnancy... Let's just say we (baby + me) are growing at a quite rapid pace. So quickly that if I started a dress today and it took me a week to finish, I may not fit into it. We're talking about an inch (2.5cm) to two inches of bust difference in just a week some weeks. So, I'm taking a break from sewing for myself.
Instead, I've been illustrating and finishing up loose ends. I'm done with the blankets for the twins and will have photos to share soon. I also would love to get some baby sewing done! I hope I get time to do it. I was hospitalized for a whole week last week fighting a serious infection, and I'm truly hoping that everything goes smoothly from here on out. The baby is okay, but that was quite a scare. So, I'm going to try and check in as often as possible with the latest projects, but just know I'm not as nimble as I was, and life... well, life has a way of letting you know when to slow down. Point taken!
