Next Week's Sneak Peak

February 5, 2010

I know I've been a little absent from sewing these past two weeks. I'm hoping you understand. It's been hard to fit sewing into my new life with baby. I think I may need to rearrange my upstairs to make a living room/sewing room so I can be with my family AND sew at the same time.

However, in the last few days between naps and kindergarten, I've been upstairs in my sewing room working on a 'coming back' Valentine's Day refashion project. It should be up by Monday. For now, here's a little sneek peak. This is the BEFORE.

I bought it at the Salvation Army for $2.50. Stay tuned next week for the 'after'.

Everybody understands your bloggy absence. Rest when you can, and enjoy your new bebe! Can't wait to see your 'after' dress!

So excited to see it! Honestly, I'm sure we're all impressed that you can blog or sew at all with two little girls and a new baby. Feel proud of yourself!

Wow! I can't believe you are even able to sew at all with a new baby who has two big sisters, you are amazing! That before is pretty horrid, can't wait to see the transformation!

Take care and recover thouroughly! New babies, and that precious new family dynamic time is so short. You rest and enjoy all the newness. Your blog efforts are way worth the wait.:)

Don't worry, it's a special time that you can't get back, so enjoy it :)

I have moved my entire sewing space upstairs, downstairs and back again multiple times... it all depends on what stage everyone is currently at!

Okay, is it sad that I like the 'before' also?

I just had baby number 3 four and a half months ago and I can't even think of getting back into sewing like you do.
But on the other hand, I can't wait to see what you will do with this dress.

I linked too you. Ahh, it's too bad this is too big for me. I admire that you can sew. With my youngest son he didn't understand that there was anything else in his tiny world besides milk. We were connected nearly 24/7. I guess if he wasn't hungry he just needed to be near the source, LOL.
