a revelation !

Well for those of you who don't know me in person and for those who haven't guessed, now is probably a good time to make my big reveal.

In December me and my 2 guys will be joined by a new member - a little girl!  This bub has been a long time in the making and very much anticipated and eagerly awaited.  She is due 4 years to the day that her big brother was due.  He was a couple of days late and she is going to be born a couple of weeks early.


The crochet rug I've been working on is for our little girl and I've been gathering supplies for other projects I intend to complete before December.



Today I made my first baby garment, a cute Kimono wrap top.  And I've discovered another perk to making baby clothes - they are seriously quick and a great way to use up stashed fabric!

I am going to make some little shorts/bloomers to go with the top out of this blue gingham.  The pattern is from Heather Ross's book Weekend Sewing.  This is the second project I've made from this book and I find the instructions a bit light-on and the yardage requirements are often incorrect.
