Reason #183 to stash...or me at 32 weeks

Hey there friendly readers! So, what have I been up to? Well, currently I am what I have come to think of as *seriously* pregnant. Almost 35 weeks along and counting the days, that's for sure! Lately I find myself feeling every ounce gained thus far and, dude, creating life is exhausting work. But, truthfully, I can't really complain. Thus far it's been fairly easy going and I am feeling pretty great overall :)

So, even though I haven't sewn up very much, I have been fairly active in the use and contemplation of fabric (but what sewist isn't, really?). I had decided early on in the pregnancy that I wanted to capture the, err, magic of pregancy on film. Now, I happen to have a good friend that is also a talented photographer! Convenient, no? She came over and we set up the studio in my bedroom, making awesome use of the stash, I must say! We draped a length of black stretch poplin (5 yds worth) over the frame of my four poster canopy with dramatic results! Not only that, we draped and clipped a 1 yd piece of poly shantung for this lovely result...

There were others as well, but this one is my favorite, using a rose from the birthday bouquet my husband gave me. Now, the only thing left to do is decide what to do with it!
