The Big Announcment

Hello friends!  I know I told you last night I would be posting some news today so here I am to tell you about it! 

Last Saturday my husband Mr. Fox and I were going to go to his parents house and as we tend to sometimes make sweet fruity mixed drinks when we go over there I wanted to know if I could have a nice full one to myself (as opposed to sipping off my husband's) plus I'd been feeling a bit off lately.. More emotional for one, and my face was breaking out more than usual and some things were just.. off.  So I took a pregnancy test to find out what was going on and if it'd be ok to drink or not.  The test was questionable.  The horizontal line was very faint but the vertical was very strong.  It was exciting to think maybe I was possibly pregnant but I wanted to get another test to make sure. 

The next morning I took the second one and it confirmed clearly what I had wondered--Mr. Fox and I are expecting a Little Fox--we think sometime early next June!  We are both very excited!  The funny thing is we were at his parents' all day but we keep the exciting news in because I had asked Mr. Fox if I could tell my family first as they live so far away and don't get to see me--and therefore might find it special to learn first.  That evening when we went back home we called up my family first and for the first half of the phone call mostly all you could hear was exciting screams and such!  I guess my siblings were calling each other aunts and uncle :) 

We then called Mr. Fox's parents--aka the Ravenwood Whimzie peeps!  They also were very excited and wondered how we could be with them all day and manage to hold it in!  Believe me--it wasn't easy!  The day we found out was also our three month wedding anniversary so that was very special.

 I am also excited to give you a preview on a project I am working on!  I FINALLY got my sewing machine wedding present set up and have been wanting to sew SEW bad!  Haha (pardon my pun).  I had a desire to make a pumpkin.  Here is what I have so far--it isn't done and it looks better in better light.  It's made from hand painted, sanded, and stained muslin with a curly vine and wool felt leaves!  I will be making a crow to go on top of it. 

I have to go now--it's family time but I'll keep you all posted!  Thanks so much for reading!
