Remember that going home outfit? We finally got to put it to use!Norah arrived on Tuesday just 6 days “late” the same as Silas and still a nice improvement from Jude’s 14 days!In case the pictures don’t do her justice, she’s pretty much perfect!
Last weekend I wasn’t particularly interested in any of the projects I already had going so I pulled out a bunch of scraps and started piecing them together. Here’s what I ended up with.
I think eventually these will find their way into a baby quilt of some sort.
It was fun to just let the size and shape of the scraps steer each piece.
Overall my sewing drive has been dwindling as I find myself more and more focused on getting this baby out! I tried to work on something yesterday and in my haste made a pretty major mistake that will require a good bit of seam ripping. Yay. I’m going to just put things on hold unless something particularly grabs at me. Maybe I’ll trace some pattern pieces I’ve been meaning to work on.
I’m in the end stages of pregnancy where it could be any minute or several more weeks. I hate trying to be prepared while also not having any expectations that it will happen soon. I feel much more at peace at this stage than with my first, but slightly more engaged in preparing for birth than I was with my second. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I’ve been doing a lot of sewing for Norah. So much, that a couple of times Jude has been drawing and said he was drawing dresses for her! It’s cute, but I started feeling bad that I hadn’t done anything for the boys lately. Then I found this fabulous whale and ocean fabric on sale and pjs were born. The fabrics are Seven Seas from Cloud 9 and the whale fabric I absolutely cannot find anymore and I’m not sure who designed it.
For Silas’s pants, I started with the Quick Change Trouser pattern just for general sizing. They don’t have the rear patch and aren’t reversible, so really not the same at all in the end.
I have a lot more respect for bloggers who get nice pics of their kids posing in front of some sort of backdrop!
A friend of mine recently had a little girl and I decided to make her a little something. I went back to that circle skirt tutorial, threw in an appliqued onesie, and a simple little headband.
Have you noticed that I am completely addicted to this Anna Maria Horner Loulouthi fabric? I really do have other things in my stash, but I guess I’m just on a roll.
