It has been so lovely reading all of the heart-felt posts about motherhood and sewing during this second week of the “Ease Into Motherhood” celebration. From the stories shared, it is clear that the daily walk of motherhood is not easy, but sewing has been the gift that keeps on giving during hard times and good.
Last Sunday, Seamstress Erin posted a roundup of the posts shared during the first week (be sure to click over and read them all if you haven’t yet!) and it is now my turn share this last week’s beautiful stories. My summaries will not do these posts justice. You must click over and read them yourself!
Vicki, from Another Sewing Scientist, shared how important it is to “Get Yourself A Thing” after you become a mother.
Snow, from Sewing Curves, wrote about the mission impossible: baby vs sewing.
Beck, from I Sew Therefore I Am, wrote about a special pattern that she used heavily in the first year of her son’s life, and why she loved it. Can you guess which one she loved that much?
Eleri from The Sew and Tell Project shares how sewing played a role in a turning point of her mothering. She also lists 10 things she learned that apply to both motherhood and sewing.
I posted my latest postpartum make that is everything that I require during postpartum recovery (it fits me now, it will fit me as my body changes, it makes me feel glamorous, I can sew it in 15 minute sessions, and I can nurse in it).
Keep your eye out on Monserratt’s blog for the roundup next Sunday!
