Sigh. It's the last full week of my maternity leave. Oh, what I wouldn't give to have another month to look forward to. Not only because Baby E is becoming less larval everyday, but she's also settling into a delightful nap schedule which has allowed me to do all the laundry, dishes and tidying I need AND do things like sew and exercise. Which makes my heart very happy. But on the bright side, I did get a lot of things done around here that I'd hoped to. Setting goals when dealing with a newborn is a dangerous thing. The whole cliche thing of moms not being able to shower, brush their teeth, or feed themselves? Totally and utterly true. It's really amazing to go from a fully (mostly?) functional human being to a person who is just happy if she's got clean underwear on.
Anyway, on to today's sewing:
This is the 4th or 5th time I've used this pattern. I keep going back to it because I love it. You get lots of different fabrics, the rectangles aren't supposed to match up so you don't have to sweat lining corners up, basically it doesn't take a lot of brainpower and it's virtually impossible to screw it up. Which is very important when every moment counts and the last thing I want to do is have to re-do something.
