Here's me at 38 weeks and 4 days pregnant (but who's counting) and looking it.
I'm wearing a tube skirt I knocked together with a stretch knit from Tessuti fabrics that I bought a long while back. Aren't I a good girl using fabric in my stash instead of buying more?!! I'm so good at sticking to New Years resolutions ... in the first week of January ... whatever.
Group challenges on the horizon
Start thinking gorgeous Mad Men dresses, as there is a Mad Men Group Challenge 2 coming soon!
Last years Mad Men challenge introduced us to some amazing vintage dresses with clothes inspired by some of our favourite small screen sirens such as Joan, Betty and Peggy.
I am so excited to see what we come up with this year!

Oh Hay! It's just me, hanging out in the German BurdaStyle magazine issue 1/2013. No big deal...
Ever seen a 38 week pregnant woman trying to do cartwheels? It aint pretty (our lounge room will never be the same).
In this little snippet I'm wearing Burda pattern #7494 and you can see the blog post about the dress here.
Good way to start the year don't you think!?!
A special thank you to Esther and Inges who spotted me in the BurdaStyle magazine and sent me pictures! My poor husband, I am going to be impossible to live with now :)
Seeing as I'm only a week and a bit off my due date, baby could come any day now. Or baby might set up camp and not come for another four weeks! Cheeky little thing.
If I am suddenly MIA in the blogging world you'll know that I have met my little bundle of joy and am thoroughly distracted by cuteness. Once things settle down I'll be back in action.
Here's a few sneaky little shots of some baby clothes that I have made.

We don't know if it's going to be a boy or a girl so I've made both types of clothes. Clearly I've gone a little crazy with girl clothes, but they're just so pretty! The embroidered H is the first initial of our family surname. I like my baby clothes extra cheesy :)

Thank you to everyone for your kind words and well wishes. I'm so excited it's ridiculous!
