I’ve lost my posting mojo lately. But I have a good explanation. In fact, it was good to finally have an explanation for the lack of creativity, lack of energy, lack of ‘getupandgo’, lack of emotional stability. I have a very important work in progress going on….I’m pregnant!
I’m just at the very beginning stages, only about two months along, I’m guessing. I still have yet to find a doctor to get that official due date. But I’m guessing early April. I have had the best luck with doctors for Emma and Mary’s births. I’m hoping I’ll find another wonderful doctor here, as well. I’ve had each of my daughter’s born in a different state, Emma-Illinois, Mary-Wisconsin, now this baby will be a Maryland babe. I hope I don’t have to cover any more of the country after this. It would be nice to have the same doctor twice, you know!
So, how am I feeling? Medium. Some days, I don’t even feel pregnant. I’m full of energy, in a great mood. Other days, I can barely get the energy to make myself and the girls a bowl of cereal. Ahhh, the first trimester. This has definitely been an emotional pregnancy. Before I found out I was pregnant, I was about ready to sign myself up for counselling! And I’m sure Dan was ready to sign me up for it, too. I can’t count how many times I heard him desperately say, "I just don’t know where all this is coming from!?" as I cried about some drama that I was sure was effecting the stability of our lives. Anway, I’ve settled down now…settled down into tiredness coupled with pure excitement over another life growing inside me.
In the meantime, I’ve been sticking to easy, no brainer sewing projects with fulfilling results–CURTAINS! I’ve gone a little curtain crazy, I suppose. It started with emma’s room when Angela of Colorfool, graciously offered me some of her vintage fabric and sheets for the project. She showed me her stash, and let me PICK what I wanted!! She sent so much, I’ve been able to stretch it into two projects:
First some curtains for Emma’s room. Brown and white gingham with Angela’s fabric border at the bottom:
A cubby in the living room–more of angela’s fabric and some binding at the bottom:
And a kitchen window…now orange and white gingham.
Mary’s room is next….it’s amazing what a little color in your windows can do for the soul.
