More sewing! I will admit I've done some knitting, too, but it really does make my hands ache, so I need to stop it! So this is one of the sewing projects meant to take over some knitting time: cute bibs. I have lots of sweet fabrics, from a south-of-the-border trip in the spring where I found bundled fat quarters of 1930s-repro prints at a Jo-Ann store.

I used this free pattern. Cotton prints for the fronts, plain white flannel for the backs, and snap closures. Pretty simple; as with most things, I spend more time ironing than anything else.

(Those little gardeners on the green fabric are killing me with their cuteness. I have them on yellow, too -- and maybe blue.)

So, I'm 31 weeks pregnant today -- two months to go. Still feeling good, other than the carpal tunnel. I'm not sleeping well, but from what I read and hear, that's to be expected, and it's only going to get worse. But in general, all is well -- and fall is my favourite season, and October is my favourite month, so no complaints.
