Baby is still working on finding his routine. He has a 3-hour period of awakeness every day but so far those times have changed throughout the day. He also must be ready to grow because he nursed last night from 8 to 11 p.m. and again from midnight to 2:30 a.m. It makes for a tired day since Connor decided to wake me this morning at 5:30 a.m. Although I will not complain because he wakes me with hugs and kisses.
Right before baby was born, I did finish Emily's quilt. She picked out all of the fabrics and binding color and loves it. The minky and the batting make for a very cozy little quilt and it has a nice weight to it. I have a couple spots on the binding that I need to hand sew that I missed with the machine but I can't get it away from her long enough to do it!!
I also finished another sleep sack. This time using a brown and turquoise ooga booga print. I seriously love the concept of a sleep sack and wish I would have had them with my first two children.
My daughter loves the fact that her momma sews and often asks for dresses for holidays. She has a valentine's day party at school next Monday and wanted a new dress. Which I'm more than happy to sew and we even picked out material from my stash. Then yesterday when we were getting ready for church, I remembered a dress I made for her last spring for Easter and she wouldn't wear (I think she said it was too big...which was true). I pulled the dress out and she declared it her Valentine's Dress. Her only request was that it was "poofy" which can easily be accomplished by adding a layer of tulle underneath the skirt.
I am so jealous of that beautiful bright green grass in the background. Looking out the window now I see a sea of white!!!
This morning when I was checking my email and google reader, I was found out that I won a giveaway. Lora from Eager Hands (who by the way has 5 lil' cuties and still makes beautiful jewelry and sewing items for her etsy shop) had a giveaway for a gorgeous lil' blanket made from vintage material.
I normally do not enter giveaways. Mostly because I feel guilty winning sewn items when I'm a seamstress. However, yesterday at church we had a potluck luncheon and during lunch I went upstairs and sat in a pew while nursing Logan. I was thinking of how I should sew a blanket for his baptism since I had with both of my other kids, along with a baptism outfit. When I was reading blogs last night, there was a reminder to enter her giveaway and I did thinking it would be a beautiful little blanket for his baptism. And I feel so blessed to have won something made with God's Love.
Have a blessed day,
