Everybody Needs A Little Time Away

After a bit of time away from sewing and blogging, I'm coming back.  I haven't been completely idle in my studio but I have shifted gears and slowed way down.  In fact, I have very few completed projects over the past few months.  And I have quite a few half-finished projects just waiting for me.  So in the spirit of productivity and to overcome my great Indecision lately...I took a cue from Stitched in Color's recent blog post and made A Sewing List.  Well, actually, mine is a Crafting List because it isn't exclusively sewing.

Also, if you haven't heard, I am just about 4 months pregnant, so I know that my list is for projects to be completed before baby's arrival in late October. 

My List
  1. Two Maternity Dresses - Mariposa Dress and Empire Waist Dress
  2. Blossom Blouse for myself and Lil Hoot
  3. Sun Hats for myself and Lil Hoot
  4. Central Park Quilt for Lil Hoot's room and some throw pillows/pillow shams.
  5. Spectrum Quilt for our new baby, The Kid
  6. Collaborative Wall Art with Lil Hoot for her new room
  7. Finish Lil Hoot's Robin Hood Jacket
  8. Knit a sweater for The Kid
I could go on but I feel like since these were the first to come to mind then I should stop here and focus on these.

But I realized I couldn't just make one list.  I enjoy making things for others and already have plans for several things for others and their young 'uns.

For Others List
  1. Camera Bag
  2. Two Growth Charts
  3. Three Summer Dresses
  4. Two Mini-Quilts
  5. Henny Penny
  6. Crib Quilt
All is subject to change of course, but I'm hoping this will help me get moving forward.
