6 More Weeks...

That's right. Today marks 30 weeks into this pregnancy and (hopefully) no more than 6 weeks left! Here's to Sam staying strong and active until then. He definitely has his own little dance party each night -- James even commented on it last night. I just hopes he keeps it up!

With edging a little closer to the end, I have started to look through the stuff that we had for Liv, including a few projects that I had planned to do back then but never got around to it. One of those projects included a Boppy cover. I had gotten a brand new Boppy pillow for super cheap while I was pregnant with Liv, but I wasn't a fan of the cover and knew I could easily make one. I had fabric that I had also gotten for cheap that matched Liv's bedding, so it would work out perfectly. Well, I never got around to doing it before the awful news came, so the fabric and pillow just sat after that. That was...until today.

After talking with a friend the other day about various sewing projects, I finally found the motivation and pulled everything out that was needed to create this cover. So while I worked on the project, Oba laid next to me...snoring...

I must say...I probably could've done a better job on it, but for just looking at the current cover and eyeing how to make a new one, I suppose I didn't do too bad. It's super soft and is already making a certain 4-legged someone jealous. He's been staring at it since I finished, but hopefully that punk doesn't get his paws on it!

Front...


Back...
(You can see that due to not having a zipper in my sewing stash -- and not wanting to go buy one -- I created an opening similar to a sham where one side folds over the other...)


Now if I could just find the motivation to start/finish the other projects that I had planned while pregnant with Livy. Maybe one day soon...

  2. Just wanted to say hello. I've read a few of your posts and can relate to your multiple loss, and I'm rooting for you. Women like you give me hope that even after more than one loss, there is hope and courage to be found to try again. ~Lindsay
