Why is it that I wait till last minute to sew? I mean, it’s Friday Morning and I’ve finished only one of the baby gifts!
My son’s class is throwing a Surprise baby shower for their teacher today. There is also a Para (assistant teacher to a specific Special Education student). The Para is not my son’s teacher, but is always there to lend a hand. However, she’s not due with her baby until Fall. So guess what? I’ll work on her gift this weekend and send it in on Monday as to not take away anything from my son’s teacher’s party, right?
So you’re wondering what is my excuse for not getting everything done? I mean, it’s not like I don’t have the necessary equipment. It’s times like this that having 6 machines (3 sergers and 3 sewing/embroidery machines) comes in handy (not to mention the 3 industrial sewing machines in the garage).
I managed to make a twin-sized cotton and chenille blanket, an embroidered burp cloth, an embroidered bib, and put a quick applique on a onesie. I added a plain pair of infant pants to complete the set. My son’s teacher wants to be surprised, so she doesn’t know the gender of her baby. Thus, the unisex baby gift.
As usual, I got sidetracked by my family. Between getting Mr. Diva™ packed for a quick trip to Atlantic City (he thinks he’s the next Poker millionaire), dinner (via delivery, of course), and my son’s refusal to do his homework, the hours just slipped away. Oh well.
Now to start my crazy day:
7:20 am – drive kids to school
8:15 am to 8:45 am – Art Show at school
8:45 am – Drop off boxes to be shipped
9:15 am to 10:00 am – Plant Sale at school
10:15 am to 11:00am – buy birthday gift for friend
11:30 am to 1:00 pm – personal training at the Gym
1:30 pm – pick up son at school
2:00 pm – collapse from exhaustion
Hope your day is more exciting than mine!
