Pregnancy Sewing Plans

I recently found out I'm expecting baby number 3! I wasn't a regular sewist until after my first was born, but as with baby number 2, being pregnant really affects my sew-jo.

#sewingthescene : Shades of Blue

I love a good Instagram sewing challenge but I rarely participate. #sewingthescene appealed to me as it wasn’t about sewing a specific garment or pattern.
