In anticipation of the arrival of my pattern I decide that I would clean up my sewing space since it was a disaster. As I entered the room, the very thing that I was hoping to ignore was the first thing that caught my attention - a UFO from 2013. I really don't have many UFOs, an Easter dress from 2012 and a maternity dress that I really wanted to make last year. The UFO that is sitting on my dress form is that maternity dress. I started it right about the time that things at work exploded with business and I didn't have the energy to complete it before my daughter was born.
I don't know why I am like this, but I feel like I can't start a new sewing project until I complete what I have already started. It's almost like I am too logical, or possibly just crazy. So, with a newly cleaned sewing room, I feel like the best way to prepare for the pattern that will be coming my way is to finish sewing my maternity dress. No, I am not pregnant again, I promise. However, I have always wanted a big family so chances are that I will be pregnant again. I now know from past experience that it is hard to sew while pregnant, so it only makes sense to finish this dress now and be able to wear it when I have bump number two.
|Here I am at 41 weeks pregnant after a long day of work!|
Fingers crossed that I will find some time to finish this soon in hopes that my sewing room will be completely ready to start a new project.
