A new hobby and 34 weeeks!

I recently had a friend teach me how to make the cutest hair bows. That got me started on a crafting kick and I've learned two more styles since then. Good thing I have two girls (well almost!) to be my models :) I can say I have learned a lot about fabric types and hand sewing (as well as poking and burning my fingertips off!) this last week, Joanne's is no longer a scary intimidating place full of wacky crafters, for I am now one of those wacky crafters :) I enjoy creating these but can only do it for so long, my dang back kills me after just a few, I might have to set up a crafting post right next to me on the couch!

This last style I just learned but haven't finished yet but the end result SHOULD look something like this.
I don't know how much time I'll have for my new hobby after the next 6 weeks so I'm trying to learn all that I can right now.
Speaking of being 34 weeks...
Here it is... 34 week belly! This is my good friend Wendy at her baby shower on Saturday, she is 3 weeks ahead of me and she is also having a girl. Bryce and her hubs Ben have been friends since about middle school. It's been fun to have someone be in the same boat as me, to gripe and complain about my sickness and pains to, and to compare our growing bellys and to appreciate together such a great blessing to be having these sweet little girls :)
I'm having a rotten dang time loading videos on here... I've tried loading straight from my computer and on fliker and have had no luck getting them to load properly uggghhhhh. So very annoying!

    I had no clue that Wendy & Ben were pregnant too! (of course how would I know, I'm lost from everyone being in Louisiana!) Tell them I say Congrats!

  4. Those bows are WAY cute! I wish I was around so you could show me how to make 'em! They'd be perfect for my little girls! You're very talented! Good job!
