Is there anything you would LOVE to get for the new baby, but haven't splurged on?
Sewing....I first learned to sew when I was 4. My grandmother taught me how to make tiny stitches on my grandfather's hankies
I graduated to the manual (treadle) machine at age 10 and finally to electric around age 12. I've always loved it! I used to make clothes and blankets for my dolls. Now, I like to make all kinds of things - when I had a serger, I was loving making clothes for Colin, but we had to sell it to cover some bills this past summer. Alas. Lately, I've been making some toys for DS (sock monkies) and trying my hand at hippie style skirts...though my success with the later has been somewhat limited...haha! I think I need to try plain strip skirts and see if I can fair better there....though I think trying to make my pregnant self anything is going to be a pill at this point.
I've been toying with the idea of reopening my WAHM business that involved sewing...I can't name it here due to the rules and such, but it was an AP type thing.
DH and I really need the extra funds since I will be heading back to school sometime in the future.
Splurges...nah. $ is much tighter now than it was with Colin, so I've tried to be restrained in my buying. I did pick up two of the froggie print Bummis covers off the TP a while back. I think they are so cute - we used the plain stuff for Colin, so I wanted to have a wee bit of fun this go around with dipes. They're newborn size, but look like they run a little big, so I'm hoping to get to use them a lot.
Wanna-be splurges...oh, yeah! I love to pretend web shop...I think I could easily be a diaper or baby carrier addict! One thing I really wish I knew how to do is knit...I think I would really like using wool soakers. I had one with Colin and loved it so much...almost too much because it was our only one and I was afraid of ruining it...so he only wore it on special occassions...and after his daily poop. LOL!
