I am not sure if you heard yet, but my sister is gestating.
Last week, my Brother in Law needed to go out of town. So I went to Death Valley for seven days to pre-baby babysit.
Which meant...really...I went to Death Vally and watched every Jane Austen inspired movie available, season 1 of Bones and Modern Family and crafted. Yeah, yeah...I did some teleworking too...but that's not all that exciting compared to all of the sister time and crafting that took place.
I have not done a whole lot of crafting at home lately, despite having my own Craft Cave.
Crafting happens in spurts, around the births of children and gift-giving holidays. And also when Archy G goes out of town for long periods of time on hunting trips. I think there may be a correlation there.
We made a graph together to show you. This may count as crafting.
I also tend toward this problem....
What did I make? Just a few little things....
A Hospital Gown ala The Crafty Cupboard. It has a detachable front for hospital nursing photos which do not show too much ta-ta. Sister is modest. I've never actually made something for an adult to wear.
A quilt top for my cousin's now 9-month old son. Seriously, Albrey...I've had this fabric and plan for Little Nolan since you announced he was a boy and his nursery would be nautical theme. I am hoping he gets this before college. I still have some work to do...like the rest of the quilt.
Sister whipped out two crocheted blankets and I also did some knitting, but I didn't get any pictures of those.
I asked if she would tell me her name ALREADY...but nope.
She took great pains to be sure I didn't find out. Foiled by foil.
Next time we pose for this picture, we'll be adding a little bundle to the frame...
Did I mention how excited I am to become an Auntie?
