sewing central

There has been a lot of sewing going on here. This first picture is a great representation of what my sewing table looks like all the time. Computer open to a pattern, a heap of fabric waiting to be made into something and a half drank cup of warmish tea. I wish i had a more tidy place to sew but for now the only place is right in the middle of my living and dining room. Now that it is all out all the time i definitely get more done than when i was using the dining table and had to put it all away for every meal and company. Long ago Avery asked for a baby doll sling. I used one for Mitch when he was small and she wanted one the same. That tells you how long she has been asking for one. I was inspired this week, found a simple pattern and they literally took barely half an hour each. Don't they make lovely models? Mitch is very into the dolls and make believe right now and he has a baby with him just as often as Avery does. That is his Rudy. I hope they make good use out of their new baby slings. I particularly love the goldfish fabric that Mitchie's is made from.

Julia and I think that the slings are awesome. I love your curtains and we got a kick out of seeing our blog page up on your computer!

aah, a perfect place to answer your sling question. I think that was one of the last times I had her in the sling, in that picture. She loved it but I couldn't figure out how to get her in there without all the fabric covering up her face, and I was always paranoid that she couldn't breathe. I love the baby bjorn and used that all the time with Joshua (who wanted NOTHING to do with the sling) but was hoping to use the sling with Zoe more. Fortunately, she does not mind at all being put down so I guess there's really not much of a need for it. She can almost hold her head up well so I'll be able to use the baby bjorn soon. What I should have done was have someone who was a sling professional show me how to get her in there good. Any tips? I have the NoJo one.
