freeform custom cot quilt in progress, just for a little pretty in the post.
• so i've been invited to be a part of magnolia square this may, which i'm super excited about and want to do soooooo badly, but the days and hours that it runs are causing me some probems. what does one do with a small child for two weekdays? especially with no immediate family nearby and the fact that mae has never been left with anyone outside of our own home? i know i have friends who would offer to take her but i have no idea if she would nap for anyone else (it's hard enough for me to get her to sleep) or if she would just be a cranky terror all day. it worries me, i hate to put anybody out, ever (except maybe my husband but, you know, that goes both ways - he's going fishing AGAIN this weekend).
• we've been discussing adding another baby to the family and, while i'm pretty sure i do want more kids, the idea of being pregnant again, giving birth again, and having a newborn again frankly almost makes me break out in hives. wer're all just barely getting enough sleep now as it is, barely getting the housework done and i'm just barely finding enough time to work - add another baby to the mix and i just foresee chaos. and tears. it's scary stuff. i'm obviously not ready yet.
• and on a much less personal level, i'm working on a pattern for some baby leggings for mae and am puzzled at how to hem those tiny little legs. they don't stretch around my sewing machine arm - any tips?
