So all the baby sewing is done except fixing the crib bumpers. They tie in and with how our crib is, that makes them sorta saggy, and saggy around baby sleeping areas is bad. So, I bought some sticky velcro and I am off to velcro them in so they hang better (and they are a quick change). I plan to gather everything together tomorrow morning and take a bunch of pictures of all the projects I have accomplished so I can share them with you. I could still make a pair or two of baby shoes, but I am kinda waiting until he gets here and I can see how big he is first (and how impractical baby shoes might be, or if I think I can handle them).
Man I have just loved being at the sewing machine every day this week though, which was a huge surprise to me. After running my handbag business for about 7 years and doing production sewing on literally thousands of bags, it sort of lost its charm. But apparently I have had enough of a break that I am back to loving it.
I have a couple fun things to share today. A little late, but this is the best April Fool's joke I saw this year. I have been thinking about it since the 1st, so I might as well share it.
And darn that Kim Hargreaves! I don't even know why, but I hopped on her website yesterday and discovered she has a new pattern book out that I am lusting over. It is called Whisper, and it is drool-worthy.
I mean for goodness sake she even threw in leopard. It is like my 2 favorite things in the whole world are now combined in one place. (Those 2 favorite things being leopard print and Kim Haregreaves books) I do believe it will be ordered and on its way to me before I go to bed tonight. And then I can dream all night of having a waist again and playing it up in her beautiful designs......
Off to fix those bumpers and then knit the rest of the day!
