This baby hasn't come yet,
Around Wednesday (or was it Thursday?)
I got terribly bored with all this sitting around doing nothing.
So I signed up for a sewing class at our local quilt shop.
It was an apron making class based on the book
The Apron Book: Making, Wearing, and Sharing
a Bit of Cloth and Comfort
by EllynAnne Geisel
It was a lot of fun.
I've been sewing for 15 years now
and I've never taken a sewing class before.
I am working on finishing up the details of my new apron today.
Pockets and such.
Will post a picture as soon as I get it finished.
(It's finished! Love the way it turned out!)
And other news...
we still have no new baby.
I'm really tired of waiting,
day in and day out.
Not making plans,
not cooking dinner,
not going anywhere,
not doing anything,
not having new projects to work on and complete,
can't even make Christmas plans.
I've changed all of that.
I've been completely inspired.
I now have my list of Christmas gifts made out (two of them actually)
and have decided that all the women~folk in the family are getting
one store bought item and one handmade item,
all friends are getting handmade or hand-baked items.
and the guys are all just getting gift cards,
(with the exception of a select few)
because they are all way to hard to buy for and
I just don't have the extra time this year to agonize over
Catch my drift?
I'm very pleased with my new course of action
and have marked pages in magazines for ideas,
blogs marked for inspiration,
the Christmas music playing,
(shhhhh...don't tell Mike!)
and I'm so excited to be moving forwards.
believe it or not,
have a small list of projects
that I want to whip up for my Etsy store.
So I'm going to be one busy pregnant lady for this week.
I'm even planning on getting all the boxes of decorations out of the closet,
and drag them downstairs (tree included!)
to await the day after Thanksgiving.
I'm crazy, I know.
So be it.
I'll be the crazy pregnant lady...
But only for a week or two.
Then I want to go back to being just
~ Fairlight ~
Then one of you guys can take over on the crazy part.
