I am so behind with sewing projects

  Original post made 4/22/10. 

     I feel like I got overdone getting things made for Christmas. I usually burn out from frenzied holiday sewing and it takes me a while to get back in the swing. The weird thing is I didn't even make any gifts this past Christmas.  I just haven't been in the mood to keep up with my quilt projects or round robin blocks for the guild. And it didn't help my umpf that I totaled my car January 12 on an icy road on the way to work. Grrr!!

     In late January/early February my daughter and I made some accessories for my new grandson's nursery. It was really fun working with my daughter: measuring 4 times, cutting once, then realizing the fabric is a one-way design, and looking at each other "Huh?" It all worked out, even turned out better than we thought. We call it Baby Coutoure. Yeah, that!  Her friend made valances for the two windows. We found the same fabric and made a cover for the pad of the changing table, a Boppie cover, and a skirt for the crib (that was the doosey, but ended up turning out better than first planned). We also made a pillowcase for a pillow insert to use in the rocking chair. It was in the same colors, but a different print. And the most amazing thing was that we finished it all BEFORE the baby came on February 9.

     Unfortunately this picture only shows the valance her friend made, nothing that we made. haha

So since then, this is what life has been up to:
