i feel like i'm slowly getting back to my normal self. mentally, i mean, creatively. when i am pregnant i just don't feel like myself. be it the hormones or whatever, i had so little creative drive or energy to even bother with sewing, something that normally is a huge part of my life. and since sophie was born, i have felt the urges to sew and create come creeping back. i actually had a crazy urge to cut out oobees while i was in the hospital with 5 hour old soph and in the last couple of weeks my desire to sew and play with fabric is almost overwhelming.
physically i feel absolutely fine, like i was never even hugely pregnant, and i am so happy to discover that i didn't gain a crazy amount of weight this time around. being back to a decent size (not quite my normal size but a decent one, nonetheless) is making me all crazy about clothes, clothes, clothes and wanting to sew myself a whole new wardrobe. unfortunately, time and space don't permit me to break out the sewing machine just yet but i've been scouring the internet for inspiration and have hit the motherload. breastfeeding provides me with plenty of internet browsing time while my mom is here to play with mae and i have found so many new-to-me blogs to fuel my dreams of sewing summer clothes:
made by rae
tea rose home
gertie's new blog for better sewing
harmony and rosie
the sew convert
and, just quietly, i have been buying a bit of fabric online for future projects. shhhhh.
a meter of liberty tana lawn to further wet my appetite...
more to come...
