it’s only wednesday, but so far it’s been a lovely and busy week-between-christmas-and-the-new-year!
now that all the christmas crocheting is done (hats for everyone!), i was able to finally finish this sweater for sweet little baby. i think i might like it even more than the first tiny sweater i made.
this week, i’m about to make the leap into sewing…with an actual sewing machine. (thank you, grandma, for such an awesome christmas gift!) i’ve got the most darling fabric all washed and ready to go. tiny little baby dress, i think you’ll be my first project. you know, after i’ve learned to properly thread the machine. perhaps it would be a good thing to read the instruction manual, as my twitter friend lottie pointed out. ;-) in any case, i’m really looking forward to this new sewing adventure.
not that we’re short on adventures around here. i mean, we’re about to add another real live person to our family. eeee! i had my 38 week checkup a few days ago, and looks like baby is still very much content to stay where she is. (it doesn’t feel like she’s very content where she is, though! pressing up against my tailbone isn’t really the most comfortable of places. =P) my doctor doesn’t think baby will make an appearance any time before next year. my due date is still 12 days away. but who’s counting? who’s paying attention to all this heartburn and nerve pain and random contractions?
it’s all becoming so.very.real.
