Baby can arrive any day now. I’m 38 weeks and super excited to meet the wee mister. But I have to admit that there’s still a bit to do so I’d appreciate it if he arrives any time after the last week in February.
Unpack the stash, even if not in an orderly fashion.
I’ll be honest, I’m not great at waiting (I’m the person that arrives to places early). But luckily there’s quite a bit of distractions in these parts. That reminds me, I must distract myself with more macarons!:)
**Instagram friends, sorry these pics are repeats from my feed. A camera phone is so much easier to use these days.
We made it to San Francisco. My brain is a bit mushy so I’ll update you the easy way: our week in pictures.
Goodbye sticky toffee pudding.
Hello American breakfast!
The spread! We only left behind one pumpkin pancake.
Unlimited coffee; as it should be.
Baby bump in my me-made stripey skirt.
My niece makes a friend.
Finally. At the hotel along the bay.
No machine means crochet time.
And that my friends was my week. Now we are waiting to hear back on an apartment. We only have a few details to sort out so we may very well have a place to live before Christmas. Huzzah! Nesting can finally begin!
May is getting closer and closer and it brings a long ago booked holiday (Crete!). I thought it was still far in the future but…nope. It sneaked up on me and my plans to sew my vacation wardrobe might be thwarted. Might! I still have time to make a handful of pieces. Assuming I get the fit okay I hope to pack these (mostly button-up) beauties in my suitcase:
I totally jumped on the Lobster fabricbandwagon . Freya and I were browsing on Goldhawk Road recently and we instantly snapped some up when we saw it. I settled to make it into a skirt because I don’t think my lady lumps can pull it off in a dress.
Another pattern that I am planning to finally make is the Sewaholic’s Renfrew. Marie’s gorgeous takes on this simple T settled it for me: must make now. I have some plain red and coral jerseys in my stash that I can use but I will be on the look out for stripey ones at Walthamstow market this weekend.
So that’s my sewing plan for April. It should keep me nice and busy.
