I am totally and completely antsy. I have done a 180 from being totally great with her staying in there for as long as she wants, to going nuts waiting to meet her already.
I’m still glad I got ready when I did because I’ve been tired and even a little sick this past week.
By the end of the week though I had enough energy to work on some things and keep busy.
Like making Cheri’s nursing strap.
I used fabric glue and trim instead.
I sewed it up first but didn’t like how messy the stitches looked in this beautiful trim that Dana gave him for helping out at Alt...even when I lengthened my stitch. Fabric glue was the perfect solution.
I think I have a new love for it. Thanks to my friend Michelle for convincing me to try it.
To keep my hands busy I’ve also been learning to braid my hair. Sounds weird…but I am totally lame at this skill.
I love all the pretty hairstyles I see on pinterest but I just can’t braid like that.
I figure it’s like any skill though right? You just have to practice.
So, while I watch TV, while I wait for Reid to finish his lunch, anytime I get bored…which has been a lot lately…I braid. And my belly doesn’t get in the way, which is a bonus. :)
Speaking of bellies getting in the way. Sewing can be quite a trick with this precious lump on my lap, but I’ve even done a bit of that lately…
While sewing up some Easter clothes and accessories, I came up with this tunic/top out of the left over fabric.
I’m going to tweak it a little more, and add a lot more color to it for a sequel series coming this June. Wink wink. Yeah…I’m pretty dang excited.
The bloomers are Dana’s perfect diaper cover pattern, size 0-3 months, found here.
Well… enough blabbing. How about we top of this Monday with good news?
