I finished my SWAP!

Woohoo! I finished my SWAP.  Am I in love with every single piece?  No.  But I finished!  I'm proud of me!!  

I find it amusing that of all the contests I've planned to enter, this one, requiring 11 pieces, is the first one I completely followed through with, finished the requirements, and entered.  I guess I figured once I got through a few pieces that I really owed it to myself to finish.  

The one piece I really don't think I'll wear much is the jacket.  It fits ok, but it just doesn't seem flattering to me, and, quite frankly, it's not very well constructed.  I think I overestimated my skills to put it together without using the directions (in German, and still indeciferable with the help of online translations).

Here are the photos I submitted.  You may remember the first one is from February (wow, my hair grew!), when I first completed the skirt and top.  Um, yeah, I can't button that top anymore.  Everything else, I can wear reasonably well, although the white pants won't button, the skirts won't zip the whole way, and some tops are a bit snug.  All the other pictures were taken this week, though.









Next up, I really need to get to making coordinating shorts for my little man and a bubble for the baby.  He's supposed to pop out in 3-4 weeks (my due date seems to change with every doctor visit), and I'm having contractions like mad already, although they're not really painful, thank goodness!

Yay for finishing! You'll be so pulled together looking when the baby comes that people will wonder how you manage to always look so good!! Great job!!
