Oh hi. So, it's been a while since I blogged last. Actually, there has been very little blogging at all, this year. And I never quite know how to begin after a hiatus. But I've thought about not blogging at all anymore, and it doesn't quite appeal to me, either, plus I may have a little more time in the next few months, so.
Boy, there's been a lot of stuff going on in recent months, RL wise. The biggest part of which, I guess, is: I'm pregnant. Yay! (That was quite a longer time in coming than I envisioned in my innocent youth...) I'm just about 22 weeks along, with the tiny person due in mid-November, so I guess I'm joining the the mommy blogger brigade before too long. (And coincidentally I've been enjoying reading the Ease into Motherhood series over at the blogs of Seamstress Erin, MexicanPink and SewFearless, which is going on during the month of July!) I'm also just about entering the stage where maternity clothing plays a role (let me tell you that my fit&flare jersey dresses have held up very well for the first half of this pregnancy) and branching out into pattern types that I never quite thought my style, but which are great for a growing baby belly (like elastic waist trousers, jumpsuits and lose kimono style tees) - fun!
Not sure if that's a smart to-do-list.
But we'll see what sticks in the end.
I've losely planned about monthly sewing updates from now-on, instead of even trying to blog individual things (which tends to paralyze my blogging mojo as soon as projects start to pile up). Thich sounds fairly do-able, I guess, provided I can get myself to take decent pictures - another of the reasons my blogging has been so sketchy in the last months.
So with minimum fuss, here's some of the stuff I've been sewing during the first part of the year - spring sewing, if you wanna say so. Which is actually still pretty weather-appropriate around here, even in July. Oh well.
lillestoff fabric. Actually, in the 3/4 sleeved version, this feels a little louder than I'm comfortable with, sometimes. I'd think I'd do contrast bindings and a midriff band (in solid blue) next time...
lillestoff summer sweatshirting fabric. I heart this one quite a lot.
This isn't quite all I got around to sewing, but it's what I have nice pictures of, so it'll do for now.
More about maternity sewing next time, I think. :-)
