Boy has this been a crazy month. The last few weekends have been action packed and the weather has been gorgeous so sitting down at my computer has been low on the priority list. But I have been getting a few things finished in the house. The family room has been painted and our couches and TV have made the move. I have bare walls to fill but I’m working on it. Now the upstairs living room is looking a little bare until we save up some money to purchase a few more chairs as that will now be our reading/library area (and future homework area as well).
I actually did a little sewing! I purchased the fabric for our guest room long before Nora arrived, I just never got around to actually sewing them (as it was a little difficult sewing with a pregnant belly). Of course it is a little difficult sewing with a 5 month old that doesn’t like to nap, but we are making do. She likes to play with her building stack, rings, and books so she can entertain herself for a little while without getting bored. So in between nursing sessions and playing with Nora I managed to get the curtains done! And I’m pretty happy how they turned out. Now I just need to get some artwork and pictures on the walls so the room is more inviting.
So my sewing machine has been driving me crazy, for pretty much ever. The bobbin is finicky, which makes getting the tension right a nightmare. Well I was making a baby blanket for a baby shower and was getting frustrated with my machine, so Derek hopped on Craigslist and found me a pretty awesome used machine. I tell you this machine may be older than me, but boy does she sew beautifully! I have fallen in love with sewing all over again.
So with my new found love of sewing, I have started sewing for another baby shower coming up next month. I starting with a cute quilted book bag to match a small baby quilt I’m making.
Now I just need to finish quilting the back panel and this book bag will be done! Back to sewing in between enjoying this fabulous summer.
