Don’t panic, Jodi. There is still some time left.
There better be, because I am up to my elbows in projects, sewing and otherwise.
I did finish one of my projects over the weekend. I made a car seat swaddle blanket, which I will take better pictures of as soon as the car seat dries from the major (much needed) scrub down it got this morning. Two kids worth of baby spitup. shudder.
I feel like I am losing my marbles. I have this intense desire to prepare for this child, but most of my energy is taken up with just surviving the daily tasks. Mornings with bursts of nesting activity are followed by afternoons glued to the couch with my kids watching too much tv. Is a reasonable balance even possible at this point?
What do you think of this baptism gown bodice? I had hoped this project would be a satisfying meditative experience, but instead I am feeling like a stress-case when working on it. Maybe it is because I didn’t start with a strong enough vision of how I wanted it to look? And now I am bogged down with decision making. blergh. (The pattern is Simplicity 2457) Is batiste too delicate? Is the lace alright for a boys gown? sigh. I am tempted to scrap this one and use a heavier cotton fabric.
Take your time, baby. Mommy clearly needs a bit more time to get all of her ducks in a row.
