Absentee

I haven't blogged for such a long time because I haven't sewn for such a long time.  In fact the sewing machine and all accessories were put away for a good two months.  Why?  Nausea, headaches, tiredness and all else that goes along with pregnancy.  I am still coming out of it, but think I see a light at the end of the tunnel now.  I managed to pull out my machine to make Christmas jammies for the kids.  I think I only did it because I bought the fabric so long ago.  And I didn't even make full pajamas, just the pants, which I paired with white t-shirts for all.  I did make pillowcases with their names stitched on the corners though.  The girls fabric is Riley Blake.  Also the pillow cases are Riley Blake.  Jack's pants are made from a skiing monkey flannel from Broadbents.  I didn't pay attention, though it may be a Michael Miller.  I just used other pajama bottoms for the patterns. 

 I didn't take their pics in the pj's until Christmas morning, so it's a bunch of sleepy kids.  I think my kids are the only ones that sleep in a bit on Christmas morning.  Sophie went to awake Bella and Bella told her she just wanted to sleep a little longer.  Funny!

 Anyway, I have great hopes of my sewing picking up again over the next few months. I have some projects I want to start-namely a Bliss quilt, and some baby stuff to make.  I did notice this is my 100th post!  Yay!  More projects to come in the new year!
