Belly Beautiful: 24 weeks and latest maternity skirt

Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes! It's so nice to hear from friends and family.

I finished my latest skirt tonight and I love it. I added a couple inches to this one (compared to the last one I made) and I like it much better. When I sit down it still covers my knees. I am soooo happy that the brown Down East shirt is one that fit me well! I needed a brown shirt so badly. (Thanks again Julie!) I only have one more skirt I plan on making. Matt suggested I make and sell these, but I think it would be kinda hard to make a skirt purely on people's numbers without them being able to try it on! (The skirt fabric is Moda: Tranquility Geo) This ran about $15-20 in fabric alone since I didn't get it on clearance and it's a good quality fabric.

I was going to post my 24 week pic. from last time, but it was in a flowy baby doll shirt and it's not really a good comparison.

Very cute skirt! I am going to have to try my hand at a few skirts myself.

I seriously recommend the book Sew what! Skirts if you want to draft your own pattern.

OK, totally on a different subject from 2 posts ago.

You mentioned that you earned like $6 in interest from your bank last year.

Have you heard of Rewards checking from Deseret First Credit union?

I don't mean to sound like a commercial, but when I helped my parents do their taxes (they are on a mission) and I saw that they were earning hundreds of dollars in interest and not like $10 I was amazed.

The Deseret First rewards checking was how they did it.

Of course, they've now lowered the percentage earned from 5% to 3% but that is still pretty dang good.

I have since learned that there are other credit unions starting up similar programs, with various high interest rates.

I have much more to say on the subject, but don't want to go on and on. If you want to know more, leave a question over on my blog.
