Yay! I missed out on this last months challenge due to all day morning sickness. This week I am catching up on my housework and next I was planning on sewing some shorts and maybe some maternity blouses. :) (and weeding my garden. LOL)

How exciting! I would love to make Anne some shorts and big news! I now have a working serger...which I am told I need to make "finished" clothes. Maybe this will be a good first project for the serger...
