Despite having gone through the newborn stage with C, I still somehow thought I would get through several projects while on maternity leave. Well, here I am with about two weeks of leave left and not a single project crossed off my list. Hind sight is 20/20 and I was crazy to think I'd have time.
At first, I was a bit upset that I "got nothing done," but looking back all I could remember was lots of cuddling with G. Two months of squishy baby time. Time cuddling a baby is not time wasted, my friends, and I don't regret one second of lazy time with my girl. Heck, most days we didn't even leave bed! Jealous? ;-)
Still, the truth of the matter is that there are several projects that I'd really like to get into and finish - partially because they're taking up space in my craft room and partially for my own sanity and down time. Once G gets into a more reliable night time sleep schedule, I plan on cleaning up my craft room and getting back to work.
What is on my to do list? Oh, just a few things...
Landon's quilt (that has been in the works since March 2010)
Charlie's iSpy quilt
Another iSpy quilt I have pieces for
Ginny's crocheted rug
Finishing making wool dryer balls
Start Ginny's baby book
...and who knows what else that's buried in that room!
I miss sewing so much. It has been months and months - maybe even a year since I've worked on a project and I miss it. Step one is cleaning that room, step two is getting rid of stuff I don't need, and step three is getting to work! I'm going to attempt to start step one this weekend. Wish me luck!
