I'm back!

Sorry I have been gone so long! I haven't had much computer time. I was busy with some small projects. They are almost all done (I have to mail out several of them this week). I have 2 to finish up and then I hope to sneak in some free time to make some things for my family. I have a LONG list of things I need to do before I deliver this baby in Sept. I want to make up a ton of cloth diapers for this baby, baby slings, Mei Tais, baby pouch, doll pouch, baby wipes, wet bags, bibs, wash cloths, baby blankets, and I would love to learn to knit enough to make something for this baby. Anyway, I thought I should get back to posting on this blog. I am also going to post some of the simple things I make for my children to keep them busy. I will try to do at least one thing a week. I now feel like I have to get this done because I wrote it down and shared it with others. I hope this helps keep me on track. I don't want to be up all night the day before I have this baby making diapers! I would LOVE to not put ANY disposable diapers on this child ever! I should be able to do it! I clothed diapered both my children from around 1 week old. I could have done it from birth but both times I read over and over how that would be more work than a new mom can do. Looking back I know I could have done it! I know I need to have enough diapers to do it! I hope to get it all done. I will be happy if I get 5 or 6 dozen NB diapers done 5 or 6 dozen smalls some fitteds some AIO or pockets, diaper covers, a baby carrier, 6 dozen wipes and a wet bag done in time. I will post my progress weekly. My son will be done with school soon and I hope to have a bit more free time in my day. I hope that my 2 children will play nice together and I can do some sewing early in the day right now I teach my son from 7 AM -1 PM Mon-Fri. I hope when he finishes his classes I can sneak some of that time for sewing. I have to finish up a small project for a friend now and I hope to have some time to start sewing later in the day. It is going to snow again today so my hubby has my car again. I haven't had my car much at all this winter (hubby has had it for over 4 months now). I hope to get a lot done today. If I do get some of it done I will post again later in the day.

So glad to see your post! I'm impressed with your list-hey, if you can get school started by 7 am then I have no doubt that you can get your sewing done :~) I look forward to seeing your progress!

Hey Amber! How's your list coming along? I hope you are finding some time to get ready for baby! Mine turned THREE last month! He's just now starting to use the potty :~)
