using up scraps + nature baby ribbon
God it‘s good. My new Elna 5100. Really good. I can sew while Astrid is asleep even. And in the next room even. My sketchbook is full of ideas, full of projects being ticked off. More batting has been ordered. Blankets are being made. It’s cold outside. And inside my stash is rapidly being got through.
We think I might be allergic to the cats. Or have sinusitis. But things are looking up. It was a bleak old Christmas. A bleak old Chops birthday. Now I can count my blessings again. Life is happy. The cough has stopped. Life is good. Life’s lessons are here for learning. And while things may not be perfect I am surrounded by and filled with beauty, peace and contentment.
My hospital bag is packed. Babychops ii’s hospital bag is packed. Each bag packed with smaller bags of categorised items. Receiving blanket, first outfit, second outfit, nappies, maternity pads, labour outfit, bed outfit, socks, taxi money, floral water, arnica.
