And those maternity clothes bags...talk about more than 2/3 of the items being badly dated and daggy now! I had the widest bell-bottom leg jeans that were super cool when I was pregnant with Oscar - a few months ago I cut them off and made them into some comfy denim shorts!
I could go to the shops and buy some maternity clothes...but for 13 weeks of wearing I can't really be bothered or justify spending the money. So, last night I took a good-fitting top that I like wearing at the moment (see the end of this post) and drafted a simple pattern from it. I had a heap of this navy spotty knit fabric in my stash - I bought a few meters of it last year on clearance (for $4 a metre) from Spotlight. The quality actually isn't too bad, we'll see how well it washes and wears after awhile though. A couple of hours later, I had a brand new, comfy top that I can wear for the next few months (and what ever time I need to after the baby is born!)
I do love the white spot on navy - if I was game, I would sew myself a pair of leggings out of it but I'm not sure that I could pull them off! Lil could though, so one of us will end up with spotty leggings soon enough!!
So, my photography goals for 2013...inspired by this lady, I am going to take a decent portrait of each of my children each week for the year. I figure this will be motivation enough to help me pick up the camera and take a few more photos than I already week. My second goal is to capture moments from my day-to-day life. Inspired by this cool blog, I am going to participate in the 12 on 12 challenge - to take 12 photos documenting your day on the 12th day of every month. Sounds easy now...I'm going to have to set myself some reminders so that I don't forget!
