I have tried to hide it and wait as long as possible, but I just can’t hide it anymore.  If you have wondered why I have been MIA for so long, it’s been a small part moving and packing, and a large part being in my first trimester of pregnancy.  The thought of blogging, let alone sewing, seemed way too daunting for the last few months.  But I am feeling so much better and am excited to be back!

I am about 15 weeks and am due during the first week of February.  We are thrilled.
