That's not true--I'm doing plenty of sitting, I swear (is my midwife reading this?). Really, it's only my hands that can't keep still. I don't know if all this energy is coming from being pregnant, or being near the end, or just plain fear--that once I have this third child my crafting days are over. I'm thinking there's a damn good chance I'll be sewing well into labor--hell, maybe I should set up the birthing tub next to my sewing machine.
Whatever the reason for the energy, I'm getting lots of "little" projects completed lately. Like belts! Apparently, I'm thinking I'll have a waist to put these on sometime in the near future. Such a fun project--some D-rings, fabric, and a bit of interfacing. I was on a total mass production line roll with these till I ran out of D-rings (need to search online for even bigger and more fun rings, JoAnn's had only small, boring ones).
And, is there much more fun than crafting for little ones? This mini drawstring backpack is for Calvin's friend who just turned six. I know these backpacks are so simple, but gosh, it took me a while to wrap my head around how it needed to be constructed. I filled it with "art on the go" supplies--markers, notebook, stickers, and a felt marker case. Now I want a bigger version for me. Hee hee.
And this bag is a gift for my acupuncturist, who I'm in love with for making this pregnancy such a breeze. This vintage fabric matches the skirt I made awhile ago (and wear every day!). Thankfully, I still have a bit of the fabric left for a Mama bag. Gosh..we really need to paint our porch, don't we? Maybe I'll get to that next....
