Well I have two new loves in my life. One was an early mother's day present and the other was a late one. So obviously this post is a little late coming but as you can guess I've been busy.
This is my new girl. She sews beautifully so far. This is the first I've ever gotten to play with a new machine and I'm loving all the fancy stuff she can do. She's a Laura Ashley CX155LA by Brother. Up until this point I had been using a 30yr old Kenmore that my husband's grandmother generously gave me and I was able to teach myself to sew using. I must say that I love the new machine but I think everyone should still learn the basics on an old tank like my Kenmore. I plan to teach all the children to sew using her because I think she's ideal for learning the basics. Not to mention she will stay in the family for the sentimentality as well. One day my kids will love looking at that old work horse knowing it once belonged to their great grandmother.
My new Laura Ashley is pretty cute but not nearly as adorable and sweet as.....
My new son! I had to save the best for last you know! Isn't he a sweetheart?!
I've said it before and I'll say it again now..... we make tiny girls and giant boys. He was 9lbs 11oz and 21in. An almost 10lb baby is considered big for most people but I'm only 5'4" on a tall day so I was quite the site when pregnant. He is 8wks old today and already in 6m clothes! I've got to make him some little rompers because he's outgrown just about everything I had for him that we hadn't given away from our first son. So you can expect a post and possibly a tutorial about that sometime soon.
I wanted to sew and blog during my pregnancy but I was so huge and tired that I just had to take a break until I had him and we got into a routine. My next post will be Nova and Wren's birthday dresses though. Here is a little sneak peak of one of them.
In case you're wondering those are vintage Czech milk glass buttons. Aren't they pretty?
