Sewing While Pregnant

Just an update on the current status of my sewing life and the lack of posts:

Ugh.  I have so many things to post and more projects to do but haven't been able to do much in the last couple of weeks.  I haven't been on bed rest, but I have been advised to not do much for a bit because I've been having A LOT of contractions.  I've been doing waaaay too much.  At my last NST (non-stress test) I was having contractions 5-7 min apart even after spending a week chilling out.  Drinking a ton of water and just sitting have lessened it a little.

Last night my sister helped me tie the last quilt of the 3 I've been working on and I'm paying for it today so I will have to wait a couple of days before attempting another sewing project!  I have 3 tutus, 2 more quilts, and one other project I finished that's escaping my pregnant brain right now that need to be posted.  Hopefully I can get these posted up here in the next several days after I get some help setting them up in some decent light for pictures...the house is so dark!  I wish I had some more lamps...  Time is just going by too quickly and I have 8 more projects that I really want done here in the next few weeks!   Fortunately most of them will require minimal movement.  

Anyhow, we'll see what I can do with 3-4 appointments per week till this baby comes (thankfully not all for me) and the ability to do them without getting down on the floor or walking around a bunch.  Who knows, maybe I can bribe my sister into cutting them out so that all I have to do is sew them together!

Wish me luck!

  1. I am still following your sewing! I even stitched up a quilt top that Leota designed from some left over squares I had. If I get it put together, It may become Alylia's. I know I must have misspelled!
