I find a bunch of flowers found in the wild (considered by many to be a mere weed) far more satisfying than the most beautiful, arranged, bouquet from a flower shop. These are on my table right now.

This past week I was really inspired by Kids Clothes Week. If you haven’t heard of it you should definitely check out the blog: http://www.kidsclothesweek.com

I would have loved to participate, but with a 3 year old, 11 month old, and 32 weeks pregnant I do not have the energy! I’m doing a good bit of sewing for that sweet baby girl due in June, but can’t commit to an hour each day. They do this with the beginning of each season, so maybe next time I’ll participate.

This week I’ll be sharing some of my recent projects: A baby blanket (which of course is not the one I was planning to make at all!), a baby circle skirt, and hopefully a little baby gown that I’m working on currently. Baby on the brain! It’s hard to think about much else when your stomach is this big!
