Thanks for letting me vent. I will be happier tomorrow, I promise! In the meantime, I really can't wait for baby, just seven more days!!!!!!

I know I look like a goofball, just ignore that please.
Now back to making Christmas presents!

I still have a quilt to finish for my shop and some Christmas presents to make for the baby. Today I attempted to make a stocking for baby girl and realized quickly that it wasn't going to be as easy as I originally thought. The goal was to use only materials that I have already and four hours later, I came up with this:
Since I didn't have a Christmasy fabric, I went for Christmasy colors...it's really all I had to work with. It didn't quite come out as I had hoped but it's one thing that I can check off my list of things to do before baby is born.
I have a few more things to finalize and then I will post pictures of the baby's nursery. I have 16 days to get it all done...I wonder how many things will be left unfinished?

Obviously, or not so obviously, many things have happened in my life since August 29 (my last post), and now I will make my best attempt to remember those moments I would have blogged about but was to lazy/busy/pregnant to do at the time.

After, we wandered around Great Barrington hitting up some of my favorite shops, which I just love to do. We did some grocery shopping and then headed to Lenox to fulfill my next craving...hot chocolate from Chocolate Springs (cool fall-like day remember). I added a yummy blueberry scone to that order!

I am always looking for things to do with the mounds of fabric scraps that I keep. And since I recently came to need some drawer sachets, I thought that I would try my hand at making them.
I happened to have a bag of locally grown lavender on hand that I've been waiting for the right project to use, and some ribbon scraps as well. With all the ingredients ready, it only takes 5 easy steps to create a fun little sachet.
- lay out small rectangles and squares of fabric scraps
- pour little heaps of lavender in the center of each scrap
- bunch the fabric up around the lavender
- tie a ribbon in a knot around the center of the fabric (right above the lavender), then tie another knot to prevent spills
- and finally, tie a pretty bow and you are done!
I was surprised at how quick this project is and it uses up some of the beautiful little scraps you saved from your projects of past.
