Around here (not so) lately, as the first few pictures were taken months ago, before first trimester fatigue kept me from even feeling like simply posting pictures. :) Above, Dragon napping by the window.
A picture I didn’t realize was slightly blurry when I took it – my second weaving, made with my little makeshift loom, and hanging out with a beautiful little watercolor by my sister-in-law.
Some things I drew for a baby shower thrown for a dear friend. Little one is now here and is super precious.
A very recent photo,unedited, from the pattern I’m putting together for my pleated skirt.
Hopefully I’ll get some more random pictures in the next few weeks, as I’m getting back into the swing of things thanks to second trimester regained energy.
A quick confession of sorts – I originally wore this outfit a few weeks ago, when the belly was a bit smaller, but didn’t have time to get pictures then. I’m getting pictures now because it’s a type of outfit that I should be able to recreate with various pieces throughout my pregnancy. Basically a skirt with the waist positioned as an empire waist; above the belly, with a tank top or shirt underneath.
Other than that, I was really pleasantly surprised with how the color combinations of this particular outfit wound up; the colors in the floral skirt seem to make the light green of the shirt pop, and all the colors compliment each other really well.
Long, gathered skirts, it’s no surprise, work really well over a growing belly, as they give room and length, and so can be worn even as weeks progress and the belly gets bigger and bigger. And it’s a plus that it allows me to be able to wear a skirt, and probably some shirts, that I already had before being pregnant.
The weather has been pretty hot here most days, with blocks of heavy thunderstorms in between. Hope the weather has been kind wherever you are!
