my mom came to visit a couple weeks ago and i put her to work. i bought a bunch of flannel (in cute baby prints, not 90's plaid. i have no idea why i felt the need to distinguish that.) with the intention of making a crap load of burp cloths. burp cloths are the one thing i found we blew through (other than diapers, of course) that i thought i could make myself. i sewed exactly one before the bobbin ran out of thread and i was all eh, i'll finish these later.
enter, my mom. she knocked out about twenty of these in no time (thanks mom!). i got all of the fabric from fabric.com and paid about $3-4 a yard. so, uh, i think i saved some money? and i don't need to do laundry nearly as often which is nice too.
pulling out the sewing machine totally reminded me that i was making a quilt for adelaide. oops. i managed to get through four whole rows of sewing those damn triangles together while i was still pregnant. it's just so tedious! (especially to a horrible sewer)
but i'm determined to finish it! i'm guessing my best bet is to finish before i go back to work in six weeks. hold me to it!
on second thought, my best bet was probably getting my mom to do it.
