Megan Nielsen pattern Giveaway!

Megan Nielsen is giving away one of her fabulous maternity/nursing patterns over at her blog, DIY Maternity! I've already used one of her patterns, the Pina Gathered Dress & Top, to make some maternity things for myself. I went shopping with a friend on Saturday, and we each bought fabric to make more of her patterns!

We both want to make the Perfect Maternity and Nursing Top

and I'm also going to make the Wrap Around Maternity Top

Head over and check out her lovely patterns and enter her giveaway!

Shopping for a Cause!

I belong to a forum for discussing cloth diaper making. It's a tight-knit, supportive group, and we discuss far more than diaper sewing - parenting, mothering, birth, crafting, keeping our homes. One of the many women I've met there, the woman who started the group several years ago, just shared that her husband was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. The medication he needs will cost them over $7000 per month, which is not covered by their insurance. If you are moved to help this family out, please check out Berritt's two lovely pattern shops:

Lille Skapet (Children's clothing patterns)
Birdiful Stitches (Camera bags, accessories, ereader covers)

And not least, please keep Berritt and her husband and daughters in your prayers!
