been busy

So we had our bug last Tuesday. Margot Bea. I have been busily posting on her blog and dig this chick has been neglected. But here I am and I actually have something to talk about besides painful nipples, her perfect lips, watching her with my man, my swollen heart, her giant, wrinkled feet and how I cannot believe she was in me and is now out: Margot’s first holiday skirt.

It is super simple. Rectangles. But I managed to turn it into a full day project that involved a lot of seam-ripping and cursing. I have felt surprisingly energized after the 15-hour, drug-free labor and delivery that rocked my world. I have been craving for Margot to meet friends and get out and about with her. Sewing has been a great way to spend time. She snoozes and sighs in her sling and I, distracted by her amazingness, mess up over and over. And over. But I am super happy with the result. She wore it to John, Tony and Pam’s Christmas Eve party.
