I'd put this on, but...

I'm still pregnant...yup, 41 weeks as of today. I've gone ahead and stopped working, which has been good for my lack of energy. I am paying much better attention to myself, taking note of every little baby movement, but man my mind does wander and worry! To distract myself, I made this post-pregnancy halter top. It's the Amy Butler Cabo Halter Top pattern. I have had the pattern for a while. I even cut this out once with a different fabric one crafty afternoon with Angie a couple years ago, but never stitched it up.

Last weekend I was convinced that if I started a sewing project, I would surely have my baby, but here is my project, completed...and we are still waiting. In the meantime though, I taught myself how to install an invisible zipper, so I am feeling mighty accomplished! The fabric is new Anna Maria Horner purchased from Sew to Speak last weekend. I really hope I can fit into this post baby, it seems perfect for summer. That is one flaw in making yourself clothing pregnant...you can't try it on, so I'll hope for the best I guess.

I really think this will be my last sewing project for a while (although I thought that about the Oliver + S dresses and the bibs too...baby wants mama to sew I guess). I was showing my friend Kelli how to sew this afternoon and my sewing machine all of a sudden started sewing by itself without having to press the foot pedal. It was as if the thing was haunted or possessed! I cannot find anything online about this type of problem, and the foot pedal wasn't dropped, so I am completely stumped. We're off to the Bernina store tomorrow to get this checked out. I am sure by the time things are all better, baby will surely be here.

***While I wait, there is still time to enter my Zombie lip balm giveaway! I am running it through the end of the month. To win all you have to do is post a comment on my last post. Good luck!

Amanda, that's adorable! Nice job! Glad you're keeping busy, and that you're not working. I felt so tired and preoccupied during that 40th week.

Rest assured you're taking great care of that baby girl and she's just nice and comfy in there. And maybe now that you have that fabulous new top, she'll make her debut! (She just knew you wouldn't get it done with her here!)

Take care, and good luck!
