I've been a busy girl

My back is some better, but feel it still, maybe it's staying the rest of the pregnancy. The little baby is kicking a lot , so it's such a joyfull time. Noah is loves school again. What do I want more.....

I put Bumba still aside, and finished my April piece of the Lizzie Kate SAL:
I've started also on the May piece: Not much too see yet.. but I'm in a stitching mood so I will finish soon.

Then the Halloween Sal I talked about in my previeuw post. I wanted to make it on a orange fabric so diged in my teabox, tryed some tea and loved to color of the rooibos tea, so cooked the fabric then baked it in oven, and tada:

The fabric turned out light orange with some darker orange/brown spots, I love it, exactly as I wanted it to be.
The is the beginning of my first part of the SAL: It looks great on the fabric.

Then sewing pieces.
I've made another PJ for Noah, it's a picture before it was ironed At the moment he is sleeping in it, he loves his new PJ, everything I sew is a PJ he says...

My pregnancy of Noah was mostly in the summer, so I don't have many winter pregnancy clothes. Can you remember the knit fabric dress I made last year. I so loved the dress, it still fits great, my big belly fits in it too, so I decided to make a winter dress of it. The pattern has short or long sleeves, last year I made it with out sleeves, now I made it with long sleeves, and made two of them.
The pictures are very bad but DH is not home so can't make a photo wearing them, maybe next time
It is one pattern with two version, and I wanted to make them both. The pattern of the bleu dress is a bit strange, but love the fabric. The dots dress is the one I really love. It's a normal dress but because of the knitted fabric I can wear it in my pregnancy too, so next year I still have a two beautifull dresses.

So this is the long post for this time, thanks you all for stopping by and leaving a comment, I love reading them..

Wat een mooie jurken heb je voor jezelf gemaakt Annette! Ik vind de blauwe stof prachtig.
Gelukkig is je rug al wat beter. Geniet van je zwangeschap, het is zo'n speciale tijd met die kleine voetjes in je buik. Ookal is het inmidddels meer dan 10 jaar geleden ik herinner me het nog goed hoe mooi het was.

Cute little LK piece! And what a great job on the fabric dying. Perfect color!

Pretty clever of you to modify the dress for winter and to make it in a fabric that works for you, pregnant or not!
