i'm really dropping the ball on this whole blogging thing lately. and i haven't been productive sewing-wise either. i've just been super busy. i should try to squeeze in 15 min a day to sew, but it just doesn't always happen. i should also squeeze in some time to exercise, but that's only been happening maybe once a week lately. ahhhhh.
i have been hanging out a lot with this little girl. she's precious. just the sweetest little thing ever. and she's making sooo much progress from the time we picked her up from the shelter in may.
but this is not a blog about my dog. it's supposed to be sewing focused. so here's the only thing i've made lately. and i whipped it up in one evening. little baby pajama pants for my cousin's baby that arrived several weeks ago. the fabric is a soft flannel type. i used this free newborn pants pattern from Made by Rae. i highly recommend it. it was very quick and easy. of course i don't know how well it fits because i didn't have a baby to test it on and my cousin lives on the other side of the country. i'm hoping the pants fit the baby and i have my fingers crossed that she'll snap a picture of him wearing these. but i know she's a busy new mama.
i have a million projects in my head and there are pattern pieces all over my sewing room floor and i just got in a package of some fabric that i'd ordered. i was dreaming up a dress to wear to a wedding at the end of the month, but who knows if i'll be able to crank that out in time. i am so slow.
i seriously need to set aside blocks of designated sewing time. if only i wasn't sitting in an office all day, right! but i have been keeping up with reading all of your lovely blogs. ella (the dog) likes to play outside in the evening so i usually sit on the porch and read blogs while she sniffs around the backyard. (she doesn't understand games like "fetch" or taking walks on leashes yet). maybe i should set up my sewing machine on the back porch and get in some sewing time then...
