Getting Crafty

Something very strange happens to me when I am pregnant. I get crafty. I normally wouldn’t consider myself crafty…artistic, yes…but crafty, nope. But all of a sudden I find myself wanting to make things…sewing, knitting, even baking. It probably has something to do with the “nesting” instinct, I suppose.

Dave and Coen are on a little trip to visit his family in Colorado and since somebody has to make some money around here 😉 , I get to stay home and work…boo! But it does have it’s advantages…one being I can pull out all the fabric and yarn that I’ve been hording away in the corner of my closet for the last 6 months and make stuff!

My first attempt at a baby quilt…for a coworker of mine, turned out pretty cool! And I only had to try twice!

I’ve got a few little projects to work on up my sleeve for the rest of the week…in between reading and shopping and all around relaxing by myself. I miss my boys but it sure is nice to have a few days alone after 3+ years of having a constant side-kick!

Oh and if you are feeling a little crafty yourself…check out some of these links!

    The color coordination you got on the quilt looks very cool. I like it!

    Wishing you a great week to yourself!

    P.S. The grin on Coen’s face with his little cousin in the airport in Denver is priceless! (Mom forwarded me the pics).

    Cool. But doesn’t soule mama leave you feeling terribly inadequate? Maybe that’s just my own insecurities!

    Your quilt looks great! Although the taggy blanket I keep meaning to make for E.C. totally languishes on the sewing table. Some day I keep telling myself. LOL

    And yep, easy bake ovens are totally the best!
