New McCall's Fall Patterns

McCall's Patterns introduced today the 2009 Fall collection. Here are my picks.

I owned a shirt like this in the past.

I am into making handbags now.

I like this handbags pattern to make some Christmas presents.

This jacket reminds me of something I wore around 1987.

Another pattern influenced by the 80's.

I like this dress. Pretty, isn't it?

I am back!

A lot happened to me last month. Being pregnant is not as easy as I thought it will be. I tried to do some sewing, but because I was working and had to come home and worry about what to cook for dinner and other stuff, sewing became secondary on my schedule. Finally, my mom came to visit about three weeks ago and she have been helping me. So, mom and I went to Joann Fabrics and purchased some fabrics to do baby receiving blankets. Also, for my birthday my husband bought me a new sewing machine since I have been complaining so much about my not so old Brother Sewing Machine. It was just that I was hating all the problems it was giving me with the bobbin. Anyway, I got an electronic Singer Confidence Sewing Machine. Very nice!

Finally, I stopped working. Today was supposed to be my last day, but I had an emergency during the weekend. Everyone thought I would have my babies this week. I was having preterm labor and was taken to Bethesda and stayed there until Tuesday afternoon. Let me tell you, being three days on a liquid diet while connected to an IV is not fun. All I kept thinking, beside being worry about what was going on is about how unprepared I am due to the fact that I was working and was waiting to stop working so that we could start moving my sewing room to the basement and start painting and decorating the babies room. Now I am on bed rest for two weeks at least. Hopefully my husband will take care of everything.
I been lucky enough to have a baby shower at work. I got lots of clothes for the babies and other things from my baby registry. I am posting some pictures.
