    Oh! I hope it wasn’t too much of a worry for you when that happened! I’m glad that they were both delivered safe and well. Were they due in Oct? I remember we had similar due dates?? Coniah was born on the 21st of Oct, a week early. I just started having contractions at 2am on the wednesday and gave birth at around 8.20pm that evening so i’m glad I didn’t have to stay in hospital for too long. She is doing well thanks, she is nearly 3 months old time does does fly! How are you finding motherhood?:) bx

      I know what you mean ;) I’ve got a muffin top that hangs over the waist of my jeans… please go away soon…

      I never actually went into labor. Little Aeralind broke her water and because she was breech we had to have a c-section.
      They were born on September 11, 2009 :D

      How is your little one doing?

    Hello, My name is Sarah and I have been looking at all your great stuff here on Burda and went to your husbands blog and then yours…it is so funny we have so many things in common ie. sewing , twins (a boy and a girl), great husbands (lol), and sewing machines. I have an old singer and just a couple months ago I bought a new one. The only one that didn’t have all that technology junk, Viking Emerald 116…I don’t like all the bells and whistles either. I also sew almost everyday…so much that I don’t put much on here! Just thought I’d say HI. Trying to sew when our twins were babies was crazy. Get all your projects finish NOW…lol! Twins are hard work but well worth it. Now back to my sewing, Saraharion

    Thank you very much for your nice comment in my Regency dress. I wore my Rococo undergarments, I know not really authentic, but I had no other. But I was surpirised that a stay is so comfortable.

    Wow! Best wishes for you and hubby and babies. Children are great! We used to do English Country Dance also. I really miss the fun—we had a homeschool group that hosted the dances, and had lots of re-enactor friends attend also. It’s not very popular in Texas—wish we could find another group. Have fun!

    hi! my cat is constantly in the sink too! i saw your fish cat bed and got so excited cause i actually bought that pattern a month or so ago and have just been waiting for the time to make it. im thinking my other cat will use it, hopefully. anyways i was just thinking maybe you could give me some pointers (im new to sewing) or suggestions to make it easier for me. I know that usually once you make something, you can think of a bunch of things you could have done differently to make it better or easier. anyways yours looks so great i hope mine turns out that good!

    Hi! I wanted to thank you for the comments you posted on my last couple of sewing items. How are your sewing projects going? Last night I was in the mood to follow the rules (the last few things I’ve attempted have been sloppy and makeshift, most of which have not made it on to burdastyle) and made a shirt that I’m proud of. I’ll be posting it soon. :) Good luck with your endeavors! RB

    Thanks for your nice comments on my Anda dress. I just started sewing 2 months ago, and it’s my 2nd dress ever, so it is quite nice to receive positive comments, it’s a bit of an confidence boost. I am happy I have found this site, with all these nice clothes & people!

    Thank you very much for your comments on both my dresses. I am so intrigued by your period piece creations (it’s like you have a collection of stories), especially the dress inspired by Lord of the Rings, amazing! I hope one day to make a Victorian or Renaissance style dress, was it very complicated?

    Thank you so much for the kind words on my Ingalls dress!! The checks weren’t really that hard…, actually I love sewing with checked pattern, I find it much easier…, maybe that’s just me ;)

    Maldrich: I haven’t gotten that far with the skirt, this is only the first panel (though I’m almost done with the third). I am planning to use fold over elastic. I bought mine online at Fabric Hound. Lots of great colors, but no 1". Mine is 5/8. Hope it’s not too skinny. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for the nice comment. I absolutely love the book, and am planning another skirt already.

    Just a note to say thank you for the kind word on my retro brown dress for my daughter. All the compliments have been a great incentive to create more, more, more! I took a look at your creations and you really have a great style. It’s just my opinion but I think you have a bit of JJill style going on. Very nice! Happy sewing!
