So I Sew 2

Why have I not been blogging?
My only good excuse is that John is hard to take good pictures of at this age. He is in constant motion and I am no expert behind the lense. However, disgruntled aunts and uncles requesting pictures finally win out in the end. So here is an action shot of the little man himself.
I also haven't been able to post about my creations lately because most everything coming out of the workshop is for Christmas. Except for today!
This is a purse from Amy Karol's book, "Bend The Rules Sewing". I added some extra pockets on the inside so it can double as a diaper bag if I so choose. This book has been a lot of fun to work through and I am learning a lot. I would say more but that might be giving away Christmas secrets! :)
I also wipped up a mini-diaper bag with the left over fabric that is just big enough to hold wipes and a few diapers. This pattern is also from Amy's book.
I started a hat last week for Chris that turned out to fit John better. I don't know what happened but it was not the size I intended. John seems to enjoy it and will actually leave it on for a little while before casting it aside. The pregnancy has been going well. I'm "livin' large" and according to the magic baby calendars, I should only have about 7 more weeks to go. Although my doctor told me as we were discussing due dates, that it's all just a 'crap-shoot' anyway. What is a 'crap-shoot'? And what am I supposed to do with that? I think Mr. Sam will come when he chooses. I just hope he chooses on this side of 9 lbs.
Did I mention we are having a boy? I can't remember if I did or not. Samuel is the name unless he turns out to not be a he. I admire those who can leave the gender a suprise, I'm just not one of them. I found that the delivery room holds enough suprises for me as it is. I will spare you any pregnancy profile pictures but here is a shot from my birthday earlier this month. Chris took the day off of work and we went to Saugatuck for a date. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time browsing the stores, eating good food and walking on the beach. It's grand being married to your best friend. :)

I'm so glad you updated finally!!The bag looks great. I made the woodland elf hat on Monday and tried the scalloped baby blanket yesterday but scallops are hard to sew. John is such a cutie!
