Ok, so I feel a little whiny after my last post. I really do enjoy sewing home decor stuff. I especially enjoy when it all comes together in the end. So I shouldn't whinge too much about all those straight lines... ;)
I brought over the last few pillows to the friend I was sewing the nursery set for this weekend. I snapped a few pictures of everything together. They live in a really neat old house- high ceilings, great moldings, old wood floors. The fact that the house is so cool makes for a great setting for all the fun baby stuff I sewed. I made curtains, pillows, bumpers, a blanket and a crib skirt. My friend picked out all the fabric. Isn't it fun? They are waiting to find out if they are having a boy or a girl and I thought the yellow/taupe combo was a really nice gender neutral color combination. I had nothing to do with fabric choice. I was merely the seamstress.
This is the second time I've done baby bedding and I have to say, it was much easier this time around. Probably because I knew what to expect. It didn't seem to take as long as last time either. I even printed out a few business cards and gave her a stack to give out. Am I crazy? Maybe. It's not that I want to play seamstress all the time. I enjoy selfish sewing way too much. But it is nice to generate a little extra cash here and there. And baby bedding is fun to sew. J thinks it's funny that I have business cards when I don't have an actual business. I say pfffft to him.
In other news, the sofa is almost done. It's so close. I'm super excited to show it off. It looks great and I can't believe J and I have actually persevered. I started to make myself a quick knit shirt after I wrote my last whingy post but couldn't go through with it. I think my sewing block lately comes from the fact that I have so many projects started, but I'm not completing anything. So I'm on a mission this week to finish some things up. Just a one more home decor-ish project to go. Then I'm definitely going to make some totally frivolous garment.
And L and M, if you are reading this, I am so excited for you guys and I cannot wait to meet that baby!
Hope everyone has a great week.
