Good for you!

There's the motivation I need

I cleaned my kitchen last night so I have somewhere to sew and cook.... does that count? lol

Grace - wife to Jeff and mama to Nigella (11/08) and Orrin (01/10)- expecting a new addition (05/12)! Life is a whirlwind, but I'm learning to enjoy the ride!

Way to go!! I have sewed a little bit recently too, after procrastinating for a very long time. I made two baby sleep bags, a silk/velour blankie and several newborn diapers.

I need to add snaps to the sleep sacks and the diapers though! So not motivated there.

Thanks for sharing!! Hopefully I will get moving on some mama cloth and rec blankets too!!

Go you! I haven't sewed anything. Not that there's nothing on my list, there is for both baby and for CHristmas but I just can't be bothered. Doesn't help that my sewing table is covered in laundry and bags and bags of fabric.

What pattern did you use for the dipes?

Wow. And I was proud of myself for finishing 20 flannel wipes today.

Will this link work?

Oh those wipes are CUTE! What's the non patterned side? OBV?

I use the Darling Diapers Unlimited pattern, and I dabble with the KCK One pattern every now and then. I did sew a KCK One modified with snaps as a holiday gift, it's laundering and then I need to pack and send it!

I want to try some sleep sacks and get to some projects for DD that I've had on the list for. ever. but when I sat at my machine today, I was totally uninspired.

I still need to finish sewing holiday gifts. I should probably get off the computer.... nah

No, just simple cotton flannel.

I also have Christmas gifts I SHOULD be sewing rather than preparing for my late Jan baby... But which is more fun?
