news


It's been awhile, let's catch up.  After the Marguerite dress collection, Joe and I took a trip to Portugal.  I loved it.  Upon returning from my trip, I planned to finish and publish the Marguerite sewing pattern.  However, instead I came home to find myself unexpectedly expecting.  Yep, totally pregnant.  I was shocked!  

My life has been so very different since I found out.  Plans changed.  The first few months of pregnancy were pretty rough because I felt useless and awful a lot of the time--the nausea and exhaustion kept me from doing much that didn't involve me laying on the couch.  I really had to cut back on my work hours and rethink everything.  Luckily, now I feel so much better.

As of today I am 24 weeks along!  I've been pregnant for 6 months.  (I know you know how to do the math, but before I was pregnant I hated it when people spoke in weeks and trimesters--it felt like a secret language that I didn't speak.)  Around 18 weeks I started to feel the baby move around inside me, which is such a weird and amazing feeling.  Until then it was really hard to wrap my mind around the fact that there was a tiny creature living inside my belly.  It just didn't seem real.  And then about a month ago at our 20 week ultrasound, I found out we were having a girl.  A GIRL!  Cool.  I really wanted it to be a girl, but I would have been pretty happy with a boy too.

I still want to get the Marguerite pattern published before I give birth (my due date is January 9), but in the meantime some other projects have come up that I've been working on as well.  I hope to share them here soon!

Congratulations! So funny how this is the number one reason that female bloggers under 40 disappear for long periods of time. Glad you're feeling better.
