Catching up with me!

I haven't done a whole lot of sewing lately, but I feel a creative urge coming on. Tonight I finished an apron that I'd started weeks ago, and that felt really good! Pictures will be coming soon.

I have tons of ideas and things I want to sew and make. I think I want to make that cute pincushion I posted about earlier, and I want to sew curtains for my bedroom that look like these white ones here:

I want to finish the other apron I have that is almost done, and I then I want to start working on some pregnancy clothes for myself...that's right, my friends, I'm expecting! Baby is coming in the middle of Febuary sometime. We're happy and excited.

I just found a note in my sewing room with all my meaurements pre-pregnancy and discovered that at 13 weeks I've already gained 2 and 1/2 inches in my waist measurement. It's really weird to see my body changing like this.

Below are a couple of pictures from my cousin's wedding 2 weekends ago. Bonny was a beautiful bride and her wedding was so special. I was honored to be a bridesmaid.

I made my bridemaid dress, and it turned out very pretty. I felt very like I'd just stepped out of a Jane Austin novel with the long skirt, puffed sleeves and high waist. I loved her colors...lavender and white are so weddingish.

That's all for now!

The pattern was McCall's 3954. It went together very well, and fit me with no alterations needed.

With me above is my cousin Wendy, the maid of honor. Bonny and I are below.
