Or maybe not? A few friends were not surprised when I called them up with the big news. Perhaps you're as observant as they are and have noticed a bit of a bump in my recent photos?
I found out I was pregnant almost exactly 24 hours after learning that I was selected for the Fabric Mart Fabricista contest. It was my own special kind of challenge to sew garments, photograph myself, and be judged all while trying to hide a baby bump that grew a lot faster than the last time around (apparently you show sooner with a second pregnancy...who knew? Not me!). Pretty much any photo of me that you've seen in the last three months, I'm sucking in my belly as much as possible!
Expect a change of pace here on the blog over the next few months (or year...). I'm struggling with the question of what to sew, as all my fancy fall wardrobe plans went out the window. My thought is to make some maternity clothes with stash fabrics that I don't totally love, or to make a dent in my upcycle bag. Luckily for me I still have a small amount of maternity clothing from my previous pregnancy, which was also over fall/winter. Currently, I'm working on a coat, since my old winter standby is too fitted to make it through a pregnancy.

Baby #2 will be arriving in May, just in time for me to run happily back to all my me-made summer dresses. Would it be crazy to sew that far ahead? I'm sure my coat will keep me busy for a while, but I have no queue in front of me for the first time ever!
