baby sewing

i have started making some things for the baby on the way.

top photo: with some leftover fleece in my cloudlets print, i made the booties with a pattern from amy butler's book little stitches for little ones.

bottom photo: with some cotton jersey in my new diamonds print, i adapted the baby quilt pattern from lena corwin's book printing by hand.

i'm so thrilled to be a contributor to sarah ahearn bellmare's new book painted pages. the book is a gorgeous look into sarah's process as a painter, and focuses on how she uses sketchbooks in her work. the styling and photography in the book are really stellar, making it extra special. the last photo is of my contribution to the book - showing my path from inspiration to sketchbook to final pattern design. congratulations, sarah!!

i hadn't intended to keep this a secret (and it is certainly obvious to anyone who has seen me lately!) but i am 8 months pregnant. we are getting pretty excited and nervous about the baby to come. we took advantage of the beautiful spring weather last weekend to take a few pictures of my giant belly.
