In spite of the weather, your sewing projects are looking great. Ariana must be thrilled with her costume. She'll always remember this one! It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the first photo of the cloth wipes (orange and green) looks rather stiff while the others look softer. Washing will change that though if in fact it is stiff.
I'm hoping for less humid weather SOON!
I loved reading about you! I think it's great that DF is so supportive of the choices you have made.
I think the wipes look great and so does the costume. I am pretty helpless with a needle and thread, so it's always amazing to me when people make things like that!
Yes, good eye! the circle pattern is new fabric washed once where as the other two are old receiving blankets that were washed probably hundreds of times. I guess i need get to washing the new fabric up a bit more.. same for the others i want to make.

I'm so excited my GBS test came back negative so I don't have to worry about the hospital if I have to transfer. Everything else looked good for the appointment. He said that he won't do a VE again until the very end unless I want one. So thats good.
Took DD to the park to feed the ducks and geese and was amazed at how many nutria were there.. I think we saw about 10 of them or more. They freak me out well their teeth do anyway. I think they're regional so here's a pic of why they freak me out the orange things are their teeth.
The playground was still closed but it looks like they're putting up new equipment so that'll be great. I can't wait to move back to town I hate living this far out even though there are a few nice things about it.
I was too for a long time. I started sewing about a year or so before I had dd. I was involved with the SCA at the time and I went to an event with XH and some friends and loved it.. I wanted an outfit but took one look at the prices and said there is no Effing way i could ever afford this. A friend I went with gave me some pointers and a basic pattern and i started making my own stuff. Even now I've never bought an outfit for it. I started with basic stuff for me and then DH and started making DD dresses for it just last year. This one is my first costume for her. and i've never attempted to make "real" clothes. The only thing i'd ever made before that was a skirt in high school with my moms help. i think i sewed one line of it..

I made both of the blue dresses. this is the type that I love to make.
made both of these tunics but for other people so they both fit kinda funny.
ok heres one of DD in march this year
munchkin.. dont have good ones of her outfit but she had a blast.
Oh my goodness, I totally enjoyed your pics :D TFS!
I enjoyed reading how you and DF met etc! Aria's costume looks great! My mom used to make ours every year.
I hope they get the playground opened back up soon! I've never actually seen one of those creatures but I've heard there are a ton of them at the park. Are y'all planning on moving closer to the city?
Will you be having another u/s? Last year Dr. H was doing them at about 38 wks for everyone...
Hey, I keep forgetting to tell you - if you want you can text me when you're in labor and I'll update on here. Just let me know!
I think your sewing is amazing! You are inspiring me to go and sew something.
I think the wipes are really great. I did some a couple of years ago and just serged the edges, they started fraying almost immediately. The ones you made look nice and sturdy.
I love your costumes and the wipes look great. I totally cheated and bought some. But hubby said I can get a sewing machine!
Connie, I'll def. keep you posted on labor. He hasn't mentioned any more u/s but who knows he did say that he wont do any more VE until the end unless I request them which is good i really dont' want any i find them more discouraging than anything else. No set plans for moving but we're both dying to get out of this house so hopefully by the end of the year if not beforehand.
Yes those things have totally taken over the pond at the park. I'm not used to them coming up that close to people but they were getting pretty greedy with the bread.
I cut some fabric to sew some more wipes but haven't done it yet. Been pretty blah today.. DF's got the weekend off and nothing really to do, not even any movies out that we want to see. I hope we can come up with something to do this weekend.
I didn't really use a pattern for the wipes but after I made those and was wondering about the size I did find this site. http://www.myhappycrazylife.com/make...n-cloth-wipes/ with 3 different ways of doing them.. I never thought about serging/zig zag the ends, and I don't have a serger anyway. But the "tricky" directions is pretty much what i did though. I'm kinda trying to think of anything else that I'd want to make and not coming up with much right now.
That was his policy on VE's for both my pregnancies too. He said they do nothing but give false hope or discouragement so they're useless;-) When I had Ethan the late u/s wasn't standard but when I had Gabriel it was.
Are y'all looking at houses or apt's? Or nothing yet, just a direction for the future...
