I did the unthinkable this weekend… I didn’t work much, outside of some emails.
I don’t know how much I really enjoy not working but I am still alive and kickin’. In fact, all that I developed was a slight twitch from my addiction withdraws. My dorky, yellow beaver blogging friends are the only reason I got through this weekend because I am no Martha Stewart; I have no desire to be Martha Stewart; I can now see what pushed her over to the side of being a bad girl because her career sort of blows.
Instead of work I was poked a countless number of times, in a not so fun way. Then my hands started to get sore from all of the opening and closing they were doing. To top it all off, I had to watch a video on YouTube to figure out what I was doing wrong and that didn’t even help! I got so frustrated that I had to call a friend to help me finish what I started.
I can’t believe you went there because I was not spending the weekend doing anything sexual! Although, Michael would have preferred sexual over me pretending to be Martha Stewart. I do have a JUICY story coming up all about Michael and the word sexual so keep your eyes peeled! I am just trying really hard to keep this PG-13 because it is about a baby shower, not how to make a baby. ?
Do you know what ended up helping with my almost epic sewing failure? A stiff hurricane!
Back to business.
I cut, pinned and sewed stuff with an actual sewing machine. There… I said it! I used a sewing machine this weekend and I am awful at it! Once the bobbin ran out I wanted to throw it out the window but I used it! I want a sewing machine for Christmas but that could just be for appearances…
I don’t care who you are, these Star Wars burp cloths are pimpin’! The backs of them are 3 ply Gerber cloth diaper prefolds because they are so absorbent.
Baby shower guests- I have 20 burp cloths made for shower gifts right now. This weekend I got bibs, blankets, the crib bumper and the blocks halfway done but nothing is priced yet. I will have prices once I make as much as I can and divide the cost of supplies by what I have made. You will have to stay tuned for the last minute details.
