Sewing adventures

Since I am on bedrest and classes haven't started yet, I have my sewing machine set up on a wooden chest next to the couch. If I put the pedal on the couch and lay on my side, sewing is not too difficult at all. I have sewed 8 new fitted cloth diapers and modified some fitted cloth diapers that I bought and used with Dorothy. Here are some of the pictures of my diapers....

I am also starting to work on embellishing some prefolds. Since they are plain white, I wanted to add some color to our diaper wardrobe. I have a ton of cute prints, many of them girly, that I can add a wide strip of down the middle of the diaper. I'm excited to see how they turn out and I will make sure to post some pictures when they're done.

I'm also excited to be 24 weeks now! We're now at the beginning of viability, so if my contractions start to change my cervix, the baby would at least have a chance of survival. Her chances get better by the day, really. But 24 weeks was our first major milestone. This pregnancy is flying by!!!

And just because she's my sweetie....

Birthday pictures!!

I don't think I've ever commented on your blog before, but I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so happy things seem to be going well for you, and congrats on 24 weeks! What a huge milestone!

Just keep 'taking it easy.' There are lots of us out here thinking about you and pulling for you and your sweet baby.

Congratulations on 24 weeks cooking time! I think she actually wants to finish baking for the next 10 to 12 weeks, don't you? The time will go even faster now, Honey, so hang in there!

That is an adorable picture of my adorable granddaughter on her birthday! The pictures I got of her were often turned away from the camera because she was so excited with it all!

Love, Mom

Woohoo! Congrats on 24 weeks! Happy birthday to Dorothy!

And I am hugely impressed that you can sew while lying down.

We need to set up a time to get together!
