Last Burst of Energy?

I think I may be going through a sewing nesting phase. I felt like I wanted to, or needed to, complete many projects in a short amount of time. And now, I think I am ready to resume my normal napping schedule!

I am seven months into this pregnancy, and I think I should start getting ready to welcome a baby. I am not sure where he will sleep- do I move one of the children from their rooms into the big playroom? Should I put the older two in the bigger room and put the baby in one of their rooms?

I was standing in Strawberry Patches yesterday, mesmerized by the fabric selection, when I realized that soon and very soon I would have to choose fabric for a blanket and sling and car seat cover for my own little one! I am nowhere near ready. The poor dear does not even have a name yet.

I was finally able to commit to purchasing this pattern. I have had my eye on it for quite some time, but the thought of working through this particular dress intimidated me. I started it during nap time yesterday and was actually able to complete it in under two hours. It was so much fun. As I sewed and cut, it kept getting cuter and cuter. The tie in the middle is an obi. I love it! I can't wait for Rebecca to get a chance to wear it. She won't let me take pictures of her in it right now. I respect that. : )My girlfriend Megan called me recently. She participates in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure every year. This year, she will walk with her brand new baby girl, Madeline. She asked for a pink sling so she could walk with the baby a little easier, and so she could advertise for me. Thanks, Megs! Good luck.

I was going to do a hot pink sling, but I loved this soft pink fabric, and it went with the mint green contrasting fabric quite nicely. I hope it helps !I made a nursing clip to match the sling. That way, she does not have to pack a separate nursing cover on her journey. The clip slips into the sling's pocket and she just has to pull it out and clip it sideways onto her sling. Instant privacy!
Race for the cure!

You are amazing at your sewing! I LOOOOVE the dress and as usual I'm quite impressed by your latest sling. What a blessing that sling will be.

Thanks for the encouragement! Rebecca wore the dress for family photos today...I can't wait to see how they turn out. The dress was definitely a size too big, though, darn it. Hopefully the obi helped!
