I'm Back!

Well, when I mentioned in my last post back in, ahem, February, that I'd be back Monday, I didn't think it would be SEVEN months later!  So here's a little update:

Back in mid-March we decided to make another addition to the family, a puppy named Rose!

she loves to lay in the warm sun
Here she is on our vacation last month, practically all grown up!

One week and 3 days after we adopted Rose from Cape Ann Animal Aid we received some exciting news that lead to this....

That would be me last month 6 months pregnant!  Wow, this one was a doozy.  For the first 14 weeks I was SO SICK ALL THE TIME and EXHAUSTED.  I was hoping with this one being number 5 that it would go a little easier, but alas, not so much!  I had been sick like that with our twin girls, a little less sick with our single girl and not at all with our boy, so we thought for sure this one was a girl, but...IT'S A BOY!  I needed the Spring and Summer to spend my small amount of energy on my family and my home duties. I am now 27 weeks along, everything is moving along great and I am glad to be back sharing with you again!  :)

In addition to sewing for my Etsy shop, I have sewn a few things for my pregnant self, including this bathing suit using this tutorial from Cotton and Curls with a few modifications:

And this super simple A-line skirt:

I'll have Ben take some pics of me in 2 dresses I've made as well and blog about those soon.

Phew, I've been wanting to share that for a while now!  Hope you have all enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to the Fall season of harvest and cool weather...I know I am! :)
