Project 31 of many. . .

One of my favorite things to do is have a big project going on while I am in labor. With Jonathan it was a purse, Benjamin a wedding dress, and with Levi it was this little number. 

I actually tried really hard to get this one done before Levi arrived, and with the dress done and the coat mostly complete on Sunday night, June the 3rd, I was feeling really good about things.  

Kyle was out of town and I was feeling very productive. I went to bed at about 2 in the morning. That morning I got up earlier than usual to work on the coat some more and realized that I was in labor. And I laughed. I laughed because you really don't want to be in labor when your husband is over 1000 miles away, and when that happens, you might as well laugh because freaking out is not going to accomplish a single thing. . . and I had a lot of things that needed accomplishing that day. 

I put the line lead project on hold and made a wedding veil for a friend of mine who was getting married in Greece in two days. I don't know if I worked on the coat anymore that day. . . I am thinking that I did not. 

Finished the project while my mom was here and got it sent out. Competition starts sometime in July, I'm excited to see how she does!

I had a lot of fun making the reversible headband. . . I am thinking it is a good Christmas present idea. Maybe if I ever do a craft night again I can teach how to make them  . . . Sadness.
