My Turn

March 18, 2011

Seems everyone else from my season of SYTYC has announced their big news, so I guess it’s my turn now!!

We told our families last week and are slowly telling everyone else in our lives. I’m 13 weeks today and our last little bundle is due Sept 23rd. I’ve felt like hell–I’m blessed with 24 hour morning sickness the first half of my pregnancies (yes, I have it until around 20 weeks, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone!) so I’ve been really dragging lately. I’m still shocked I made it through the competition alive!

Things are getting back to normal around here. Our house is nearly spotless and it feels good to have everything clean and organized. I’ve got some projects to finish and my tutorials to get up (had to send my computer off to Apple this week to be repaired, so I was without it for a few lonely days), and I’m trying, I promise! So stick around for some cute projects soon to come!

    Congratulations to you and your family. I hope that you are blessed with a shorter span of morning sickness this time around! I am in awe at how much you did and how wonderful the projects are! BTW, what place did you finish? For some reason I have not been able to find where it states who “won” the competition.

    Thank you for all that you share! You have a WONDERFUL blog and I just love your tutorials!! Your blog is one of my very favorite “crafty/family” blogs! :o)

    Congratulations Melissa!
    So sorry you are having bad morning sickness.
    I had the same problem when I was pregnant (many moons ago!).
    It’s awful!
    I just wanted to tell you how much I love your projects.
    They are just beautiful and they inspire me to want to sew more!
    Thanks…I will be following and I hope you feel better soon!

    I am new to your blog. I have three daughters near your age. In all they have 7 children I sew for. I look forward to seeing all your projects. I will be inspired and may be able to link my daughters to you to inspire them as well.

    It has been a while since I checked in here, and I don’t think I have ever even left a comment before. Congratulations! That is so cool that they will both be big sisters, and I love the T-shirts you made them. 🙂

    […] was the last time we were all together. Ironically, it was the night we announced this pregnancy. I framed a picture of the girls in their “big sister” shirts to give to my Mom, whose birthday was just 2 days later. […]

    I just found your site and am enjoying all your fun inspirations. I love the font you used for the names and the big sister shirts. Can you tell me what it was? I have a project I have not finished because i have been afraid to do the machine applique….but Now I am going to get ON IT.

    Thanks so much.
