skirt skirt, I made a skirt :)

So I've been crafty lately and I promised I'd post the things I've done so here goes!

I've wanted a circle skirt for a long time now and I figured I could make one easy enough. Six cuts later, some pinning and sewing I had done it!

You can't tell from the picture ( I had to use my phone because my camera is dead ) but it's a very pretty plum color. So all layed out it looks really cute and fun but I made it out of Jersey knit material (so it would stretch over the growing belly and fit after the baby arrives) which is a great comfy matterial but it looked like a limp rag around my body and I was convinced that it was a lost cause.

I was pouting over the loss when I looked at my lap to find the skirt bunched a little to I pinned it and stood up; SO COOL! It hung really nicely so I proceeded to pinch and pin all the way around until I found the pattern I liked and then stiched all of the gathers in place.

I love the final result!

Here's a list of some 'Firsts' in this pregnancy;

obviously it's my first pregnancy :P
I first saw the baby at 10 weeks
In the same ultrasound he was perfectly still untill he started kicking like he was running a marathon. This marathon only lasted a few seconds and then he was perfectly still again.
I felt my first kick at 16 weeks while sitting on the couch at work.
We think the first time I felt hickups was at about 20 weeks.
At 20 weeks and 3 days we descovered that he was in fact a boy.
This is the first time in my life that I've had heartburn and I really don't like it.
By aprox 22 weeks I was noticing his first responses to things outside the womb; he kicks when Griff leaves in the morning and kicks when Griff puts his hands on my stomach.
At 24 weeks I saw his face for the first time (in an ultrasound).
25 weeks marks not only where I am now but also the first time he has moved for long periods of time; today he kicked and rolled over one spot on my side for 25 min! It was very entertaining and yes, I sat there and just smiled the whole time. Who needs Tivo? I have a kid! Well Fetus :)

So my life is full of changes right now and I'm working on more changes too.

I've finally changed the look of my blog.

I've made a resolution to update at least once a week. (please be patient as I work into this since we've seen how well I've done lately haha!)

I'm moving to a new apartment where Griff and I will be able to begin to really build a home together and I'm beyond excited! For those that don't know we've been living in his grandparents basement; not that I don't love it here and everything but I will be able to expand from a bedroom and bathroom to a full apartment with two bedrooms, a bathroom, my own kitchen, living room and walls I can decorate to my style and hearts content!

Packing; packing totally counts as change :)

The biggest change in my life right now is the ever growing Roblecito. He weighs about a pound now and he's about a foot tall. If you're still confused; I'm pregnant, it's a boy and I'm 24 weeks and 5 days or in other words 6 months along! Yes, I realize that I should have talked about this sooner but with everything going on I've lost track of time and slacked off. Only under the recent circumstance have I been able to to really think about the blog thing. Present circumstance being bed rest, now granted it's only for a week but still, I have a ton of time and not much to do so what do I do? Play games on the pod, sleep, eat, sew what little scraps of fabric I can get my hands on, wait for Griff to get home and entertain me or just talk to me, watch movies and then it hit me; *thought* "You have totally forgotten to update your blog!" * So here I am repenting and doing my best to start again.

I know this is not entertaining at all but I'm going to try and write more often and maybe even get my camera up and running again so that I can show you all the nifty crafts I've been working on over the last while.
