This will hopefully be quick as it has been kind of a tough week over here. My back started acting up on Wednesday and has done nothing but gather speed. In kind of a weird spot. It is hurting right around the shoulder blade on the right side. I had this YEARS ago on the other side, and I remember it took a long time for it to go away. I am trying everything I know to baby it along, but sleeping has been somewhat of a nightmare, in that I can barely sleep. Pretty weird for me. This is the gal that usually nods off at the drop of the hat....sigh. And to finish it off making me somewhat frustrated today is that it is 94 here and our air is NOT working. These homes are sooo poorly insulated that it is 88 in our house right now making it somewhat unbearable to do anything but sit directly in front of a fan. Oh, and to taunt me I can hear several of our neighbors air conditioners whirring away, lol. My hubby thinks he has our air conditioner guy able to come out here tonight so I am keeping my fingers crossed as it is supposed to be EVEN HOTTER the next couple of days. I am not going to lie. It makes me nervous when it's this warm and it is only March. We need to replace our air conditioner all together as it has been on wobbly legs for at least 3 years now, but biting off what it will cost to replace the whole thing makes us even more nervous. Sooo, that's my whine story this afternoon...sigh.
Other then that, I did get some sewing done this week. (I know...SHOCKER!) I finished up ALL of the bedding for the nursery. Which is basically the quilt, 3 crib sheets, the bedskirt, the pillow and 2 changing pad covers. The only thing I have left in that area is a couple of stuffed animals out of the left over fabric. I am thinking maybe a cat and an elephant. These are really pretty quick and fun to do so no big deal there. And then I finished up the gifts for Weston. I had already made him the legging pants and shirt, but I had some black leather left over and I wanted to try and make him a pair of baby mocs. As it turned out I didn't have quite enough. But I changed a couple of things and made it work. I don't think anyone else would ever notice. And hey, if they don't work the leather was just going to waste anyway. And then, I made him a pair of pj's as this is what she said he could really use. I find some super cute fabric and they went together really fast. Now it seems like I have gotten him a lot for his birthday, but a first one IS special, and honestly it cost me VERY little. Then, I want to bring a couple of new things for Melody's boys when we go when the baby is born. And what better then a couple of pairs of summer jammies. I had some fabric so I tried to make it work for both boys but didn't quite pull it off. I did get Lukes's completely made, and Sam's top, but I will need to buy a little more fabric to make his short bottoms. And then I had some fabric left over from Weston's PJ's and it is sooo cute I decided to make the boys some out of that too. I got the bottoms cut out for Luke, and both of the sleeves for both of the boys, and the front of Luke's top. So I will have to buy very little to finish these up. All of these jammies were made from a pattern I found on etsy, and I am REALLY happy with it. It goes from 6 months to size 8 so I think I will get a lot out of use out of it. Let me show you this weeks work....
