Pretty Amazing

Today I have a day off (a bank holiday in this part of the world :-)). As my sewing mojo is on its highest, I wanted to use the day for sewing. In reality it´s late afternoon right now and I haven´s even made a first step towards sewing anything. My problem: I didn´t find a single piece of fabric in my fabric stash, that I´d be willing to sacrifice to make a pregnancy outfit, that will only serve me for a couple of months (or weeks, looking at the speed my weight is going up. Blah.) I also don´t have the courage to sew anything for my post-pregnancy life, because I don´t feel like sewing without being able to do any fitting is a good idea. I´ll have to think about a plan to solve this dilemma, because I really want to sew something up! :-D

I have one idea in my mind - I want to make some things for the baby (a quilt, a pillow and blanket cover...) - things like this, but since I don´t know the gender yet, I don´t know what colors to use. And I don´t see yellow as the central color of my choice :-)...

Talking about the baby. This is also the second reason for which I wasn´t blogging for quite a long time (I talked about it in this post). I wasn´t feeling well and I was terribly exhausted as soon as I left my bed in the morning. Fortunately, this has improved with time and I don´t fee like sleeping 24/7 anymore. 

Now, back to the present.

Can this post get any messier :-)?

As I was feeling as quite a useless creature today - a day off and no sewing going on (!), I went to my last refuge - other people´s blogs. I mean, at least someone else is sewing, right :-)?! So I stared with the most recent blog post on my following list. It was from a blogger I just began to follow recently. A couple of nights ago I couldn´t sleep and I was browsing the internet and looking for talented bloggers for some feel-good read and inspiration. That´s how I discovered Rhonda Buss of Rhonda´s Creative Life. According to the picture that was showing on my blog roll, Rhonda blogged about the same dress that I blogged about lastly - the McCall´s 6553. Ah, great, I want to see it!

But waaaaait :-O! I nearly fell off my feet. Well, only nearly, because, fortunately, I was sitting :-). This lovely lady had put up a post about two bloggers, one of them being ME! I mean, I nearly had a heart attack, because there are so many wonderful bloggers out there, that I can´t even compare with (so I better won´t...) and someone has really wrote about me and my humble blog. 

I have to say - THANK YOU, RHONDA. Thank you even for the survived almost-heart attack :-), because the reason was a very flattering act. It has also brought me to the thought, that I should mention other fellow bloggers more often, especially because a huge amount of inspiration, good read and things I keep constantly learning come from them. Meaning you, other sewing bloggers :-). 

With this feeling of gratitude - towards Rhonda and other great bloggers out there, I am leaving you for now.

Happy sewing and see you soon!

  1. I am so very happy that I was able to put a little spark in your day. And it sounds like it couldn't have come at a better time.
    Go ahead and sew for that new baby. Who says that the colors need to be pink or blue? As inventive as you are, you'll come up with something really special I'm sure.
