New Ways to Spend My Time

The sewing machine has been in the repair shop for two weeks now, and I must admit, I’m going through serious withdrawals.  Especially since Bambina has started taking some really great naps.  So, I’ve had to find some new ways to spend my time.  Here are a few ways I’ve been spending my time lately…

Embroidered Bambina’s monogram onto her baby quilt.

Embroidered a sleeping dragon onto a Onesie for a friend’s new baby (it’s the year of the dragon!).

Made a simple baby doll for that dragon baby.

Made some magnets for the grandmas for Mother’s Day.  (And a couple for myself.)

And a whole lotta this…

Yep, lots of time doing this.

Did I mention I’ve been working on this?

Ok, I admit, what you see in the pictures is actually 18 months worth of knitting.  I’ve actually only put on about 10 stripes in the last two weeks.  This little knit blanket has been sitting in my project basket untouched for probably 8 months.  Every so often I’d pull it out and add a few more rows, but then once the Bambina came along, I kind of got distracted.  Now that she’s got a decent bedtime and I have a few minutes to just sit in the evening, this little puppy might actually get finished and given away!  (When a friend asked me who I was making it for, I said it would be for the next baby who was born after it was finished.  Since that conversation, not only has she had a baby, and I’ve had a baby, but I know of five other babies who have been born to close friends and family.  Blanket still not finished.  I’m just waiting for the right baby, I guess.)
