Making Room For Baby

He's fast approaching. Only 5 1/2 weeks left until he makes his arrival on Valentine's Day. I still have plans to design and sew his crib bedding and now I will be reupholstering a glider I bought. Wish me luck ;) It will be my first try at upholstery. But, it doesn't seem like it will be too hard.

The crib bedding should be adorable. I'm planning to mix chocolate browns, baby blue and lime green. I'll post a picture when/if it gets Crazy how fast 9 months (actually 10) can pass by.

I have had a lot of custom orders lately. So, I had to get those done first. I made my first article of clothing for my son. I drafted a pattern for lounge jammy pants. Made him three pairs for Christmas. He loves them! Planning to make a couple matching pairs for his brother. Start the bonding early ;) Nice to finally have tackled clothes. Much better than expected. Funny part is I bought a pattern for them and then tossed it. My brain works better at it's own design. Plus fit is always important. That pattern looked like it would be too big.

Happy New Year!!! Hope your holiday season was memorable.
