Been a while...

Hello to anyone who checks this blog. It's been a while since I posted - first Christmas came and then that was shortly followed by morning sickness. I'm pregnant! I'm now at 11 weeks (due date is August 28) and so far I've been exhausted and nauseous for most of the time, leaving little inspiration for blogging. I think I may finally be turning the corner, so, here's hoping.

Below is a little photo tour of the last couple of months. :)

Reversible knit earflap hat for my 6 month old nephew

Pajama pants for the same nephew (I still need to get a pic of Q in the shirt I made him using the robot fabric as accents. I had to make him something with it, since the robot fabric was originally bought for him!)

Handmade journal for my dad. This was the second book I've ever made. It's also the first one I made using fabric for the cover. (Note: Be careful to not stretch the fabric at all when you're gluing it to the davey board because it will shrink as it dries. I think it's only noticeable enough on this book to bother other bookbinders and me though.)

Binky in a box on Christmas Day

Marbles asserting his bossy, brazen kittenness. None of our cats are normal but he's the weirdest yet.

I made egg drop soup for the first time (before morning sickness hit) and it turned out really well.

Yay! You're back! Congrats on the baby news- I really can empathize with bad morning sickness. Blah! I hope you start feeling better soon!
