Hi, Its me... I'm back... again!

I am so bad at this blogging stuff. I really want to blog and blog often but something happens. Maybe its just me being lazy. Maybe it also has to do with the fact that I don't have much to show for what I've been working on. I had one large project and its nearly done but can't show it yet, I made a nice dress for a wedding in April but didn't get a nice pic of it and also made a table runner for the newly weds but again didn't get a pic... and then I got lazy.

Lazy and also pregnant! hah. That is a good reason right? I never would have guessed that I would get so obsessed about becoming a mom. My husband and I began trying... working at... working towards... having a baby after we got married and at the end of March our wish came true! I'm now almost 5 months pregnant. Time is going so fast towards my November due date. Just in the last week or so I've been starting to feel the baby move and I'm definitely looking bigger! Soon I will start to actually look pregnant rather than "thick" lol. So that is my very exciting news! Lots of baby's are coming actually. One more on my husband's side and 2 more on my side. I think we'll all need larger houses for the many family dinners we have!

Ok, back to crafty stuff. An old friend of mine, Keith, from my Toronto days recently commissioned a couple of things from me, an ipad sleeve and a messenger bag to carry his ipad and a few other things. He's a student in Santa Fe right now so he wanted something small for his journeys. I was so glad he asked, one because he's a good friend and also to get me out of my non-sewing rut. AND I'd never made a messenger bag before. Here are a few pics of the finished product.







Keith chose one of my favourite prints as the main, the gray map print and told me he likes bright colours, in red, orange, yellow... I didn't have any nice prints in those colours in my stash so when I saw this firework looking print at a store in a nearby town I was so glad. I didn't want to just use gray and black as Keith is much more exciting than that! He's seen the pictures and loves it, now we both can't wait til he gets it in the mail. Thanks again Keith!

Powwow season is upon us, that means I really need to get busy. The one powwow I definitely want to have a booth at is just over a month away and I haven't made much product yet. So we'll see if I can keep to my blogging and my sewing and maybe, just maybe you'll see previews as I go along.

Bye!
