WOW!! i am "sew" inspired by all of you!
i don't knit - not yet anyways. but i noticed that some of you mentioned "thrumming". i heard mention of this in a novel that i read. (
the novel is called "the birth house" by canadian author ami mckay...fabulous! www.thebirthhouse.com
anyways, i love to sew
. but i haven't had a lot of time for it recently. i have about 4-5 boxes of fabric
which i am reeeeeally hoping to use up for some christmas/birthday presents. i figure that if i start now, i might actually have some things done in time.
i don't have any projects planned for this baby
perhaps another mei tai carrier later on, but not for before birth. oh, wait - i plan on making some cloth wipes and some doublers. but that should be pretty straightforward.
plans i DO have:
-make doll diapers for DD
-make a doll carrier for DD
-make super-hero costume for DS1
-make something similiar for DS2 (who will want one after seeing big bro)
-make some fabric "sculptures" for b-days coming up (see note below)
-make purses/bags for some friends/family as christmas presents
i have become enamoured with the idea of making pillows/fabric sculptures that mimic everyday objects. last year i made some giant shoes (i am a shoe-aholic...another of my non-granola tendencies
) here is a link for some pics (they still needed some refining) http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...2&l=ed6cd68356
my close friends and i heartily enjoy going out for martini nights - so i decided that i want to make them giant martini glasses similar in style/scope of the giant shoes. they each have milestone birthdays coming up this fall (before EDD) so i hope to make them! i need to start prototypes this month
