Scrap heap project
I don't know what happened. I thought I cleaned it up pretty nicely when I moved into my current place last August. I love fabric. As I wrote in the guest blog post over at the cupcake goddess, visiting fabric shops became a hobby in and of itself. I always buy way too much, but in my defense, the majority of left overs come from pieces bought for custom orders. The reason being that I don't like to worry about not having enough fabric to fill the order, and so I often end up with much more than I need.
I am going to be on maternity leave soon. I'm excited and nervous at the same time about this. I'm excited for the obvious reasons - to have some vacation time and time to spend with the baby. I'm nervous because I am a bit of workaholic. I get jittery if I'm not busy. So, as soon as I get out of the hospital and am able to get up and move again, I want to start a project called "Scrap Heap". For this project I will make something from this fabric mess. I plan to make one item a day, Monday through Friday for a month. I think this will give me some schedule so I won't be sitting in front of my TV wearing pajamas all day long. Have any of you done something like this? Has anyone found a post pregnancy, maternity leave hobby?
During my leave sabattical, I also am thinking of learning how to create patterns on computer. Does anyone know any good software for that?
By the way, thank you so much for those who commented on my last post - I feel so relieved that I don't have to pinch my own nipples! I will leave my nipples out for the time being:)
P.S. Check out my interview post over at Willow Would..thank you Amber!
