To seal them I used my new Japanese Washi Tape! Rodrigo got it for me for Valentine's Day! Wasn't that a sweet surprise?! It's so pretty! I had been admiring it for a long time online, but have never bought myself any. I think these are just perfect!
And in other news I have been working on this sundress for me. I am making it out of some quilting weight cotton that I've had in my stash for a long time. I found this free pattern online from the fabric designer Heather Ross. (I love her fabrics... so cute!) I liked the pattern because it is so easy to make, even the shirring is simply done using elastic thread, and because it has pockets! I love a dress with pockets! It still needs to be hemmed and to have the shoulder straps attached. I think I'll make a few more of them and maybe a couple for Claire as well... matching sundresses for Mama and tiny girl!
But most importantly I liked the pattern because it will work for me throughout the coming Spring and Summer with my rapidly expanding tummy!
I am very thankful to be able to announce to you all that we are expecting baby number 5 to join our family this coming September! Such exciting news, and truly an important "work in progress!"
* lack of energy... that has been my main pregnancy symptom so far. I am just so tired all of the time! I am 9 weeks along right now, so I should be feeling a bit more like my normal self in a month or two. But for now, this mama is taking things easy.
