In November, Mr. RLQ and I learned we were expecting our second child, and in February the ultrasound technician told us we are having a boy! Cue visions of snips and snails and puppy dog tails, of dinosaur quilts and little homemade vests.
Of course, those things have had to remain mere visions for quite a while - starting in Mid-December, I got a case of all-day "morning" sickness that knocked me down until well after the first trimester was over. In fact, I'm in week 26 now, and still on anti-nausea meds (admittedly, a smaller dose than I was on at week 14). But just as exhaustion followed me around with baby A, "occasional morning sickness" seems to be my nagging companion with our as-yet-unnamed baby boy.
But, despite the setbacks, I was able to get unbury my sewing machine this weekend, long enough to make a (much belated) birthday present for a friend. Below is a preview: the gift itself is still in the mail.
The collection is Under The Sea for Northcott fabrics, and I can't wait to reveal the finished product. It sure was refreshing to sit in front of my sewing machine again.
