Sewing Frantically because Elly will be Here Soon

The curtains are finished!

Baseball buttons adorn both panels now allowing me to fold up the bottom half to make room for the radiator.

While waiting for the buttons to arrive, I whipped up a nursing cover, a.k.a. hooter hider.

Since it was such a joy to sew, I’ll be posting a short tutorial on the cover in a few days.

Currently, I am sewing up Elly and her little friend in Seattle matching bloomers. If I finish them as quickly as I would like to, I plan to sew one more item for Elly: a bathrobe. Then, there is also the Mei Tai sling I’d love to find time to sew.

But the clock is a-ticking. Elizabeth is considered full-term now at 37 weeks.

With a little luck, she will enjoy hanging out in her current abode for a few more weeks, giving her Mom time to finish all the current sewing and knitting projects and time to reorganize the guest bedroom/sewing room. It pains me already to think that I will have to pack away my sewing machines for over a month to accomodate our overnight guests. Yet, the help I will receive in return should more than make up for it. Besides, will I really have time to sew when Elly is a newborn? I suppose not. And, of course, I’ll still have my knitting.

  1. I don’t think you’ll have much time for anything, except maybe using the hooter hider, and if you do have time then you should take a nap.

  2. Well you do look about Done! With Elly and everything else. Now take some time and relax before the big day gets here.
    I can’t wait.
