The turtle pincushion looks so cute, just unable to open up the link… Thanks for sharing all your neat project ideas!


Thanks, Curried Cupcakes, I was just about to post the correct link, too! It's SO cute, isn't it?


Thanks Fabricworm and Prudent Baby for the cute romper pattern! I'm gonna give it a try even though I won't be able to wear it as well as your model đŸ™‚


I love that turtle pin cushion. We are all about turtles around here right now, or as my 2 year old calls them "dur-durs".


ok, thank you SO much for the blog about chocolate being good for a preggo mama! with my first pregnancy i had preeclampsia. with this one (i'm 38 weeks!) i've allowed myself to eat more chocolate because so far, i haven't gained as much weight as the first – and you guessed it – no preeclampsia symptoms so far! yay. it may have nothing at all to do with chocolate, but it makes my heart happy to hear that chocolate = good. i know you understand.
