It’s all about the preparation today. The plan is that if I trace out patterns and cut the fabric out today then I’m set to sew sew sew on the long weekend. Ms. M has outgrown loads of her clothes and is in need of some warm items ready for the cooler season, and even though Mstr. E is better prepared he could probably do with a bit of a top-up too.
In addition to sewing for the children I’m also hoping to make some gifts this weekend. A close friend recently had her 40th birthday and I wasn’t organised enough to arrive with a gift (so so slack) so her pressie is also a top priority, and there are some other occasions approaching and I am hoping to be ready ahead of time.
So what are my plans for the Easter long weekend? Hopefully I’ll be bunkered down in my sewing space making some headway on my over-ambitious list of things to do. You see I have to be careful this weekend. Easter is the pagan festival of fertility and I have managed to unintentionally conceive both of my children on this weekend… don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have #3 – but not anytime soon. Ms. M is still breastfeeding like a trooper and I want my body to myself for just a couple of months before resuming the “pregnancy/breastfeeding my body isn’t my own” path. There is imminent danger present. My birthday is this weekend too… so no doubt I will indulge in a couple of glasses of red wine, my first for the winter season, and after sometime cuddling up to my mister … well… who knows what could happen?!?!?
