Dragons and sewing and babies, oh my!
October 22, 2012

Last week my daughter’s preschool hosted a costume parade and party.  So, after several months of listening to her tell me that she would really like a “Chinese rainbow dragon” costume please, I finally cranked one out.

As you can see, I AM NOT A SEAMSTRESS.  But there was something so phenomenally satisfying and empowering about meeting my daughter’s requests at the sewing machine that I suddenly wish I were.

So.  Goal Number Six Hundred Forty-One for 2013: practice sewing.

As you can also see, I AM STILL PREGNANT.

So.  Goal Number One for the next couple weeks: HAVE A BABY.

    That is awesome. Nothing made me want to be a seamstress more than making Jenson his little love blanket. It’s just two pieces of berber fleece sewn together, but he loves it like crazy. He’ll cry if he doesn’t have it at bedtime—He holds it in his hand and sucks his thumb.

    I have a few projects I want to get done, (like this crazy project: http://katy-a.deviantart.com/art/How-to-Plush-your-Dragon-161986356) but this whole morning sickness thing has put a pin in those. Haha.. Puns.

    You are amazing! I’m way behind you at 28 weeks and cannot imagine having the energy to make such a kickass costume.

    Amazing. LOVE the costume! And you just might be the cutest pregnant person ever. Seriously - you cannot even tell you are pregnant from the back I bet!

    Jessica - If only you could see the stitches up close =P Also, the pink part of the costume I didn’t make - my parents picked that up for Charlotte as a souvenir a few months ago.
