Meanwhile, in the Sweatshop...

Ever been in a waiting game that drove you nuts? Well, I am... and I was making it pretty hard on myself by not having plans through out the day- You see, I'm not working (before it was summer break and now that school is starting back up, I'm doing the "Mommy" thing so I won't be going back) and when you don't have anything planned in a day, said day sure does drag on!!! Oh, I've had projects to do but just didn't want to start something I couldn't finish.. so there I sat... waiting. Haha.

Well enough is enough. I can't wait around forever! So I resurrected the sweatshop (sewing room), only instead of my normal fare of purses, I began cutting and sewing with a different purpose in mind- a diaper bag/carry all. Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to work I go!! And SWEATshop it is since the temps outside are pushing 110 degrees and it's a small fortune to cool the entire house all day... So I keep the air on set to around 80 degrees and believe me when I say that cutting and sewing with the speed and agility that I do really gets a sweat going!

Anyway, John (the sweet and darling husband that he is) knew that I was eager to finish my diaper bag and planned a day to occupy his time as well as help me out (grocery shopping and what not) so that I could stay home and finish up the bag! Well- It's Finished!!! And although I don't fully know what kind of stuff mom's put into diaper bags, I've got it all loaded up with do-dads and thingamabobs! It's HUGE!! So now I've got a cute and compact diaper bag that my girl Krista got for me and a HUGE maamma-jamma that I can fit everything but the kitchen sink into- if need be.

Now I'll have to find another project to occupy my thoughts and time until Riley comes!!

That is the cutest thing ever! I cannot even imagine what my attempt at sewing a diaper bag might bring... yeah- it wouldn't be of much use I have a feeling. Anywho, the wait for your son is occupying MY thoughts throughout the days, so I can only imagine what you must be going through! It can't be long now!!! Love you!

I love the bag! You could give some of these purse designers a run for their money.

very cute! :) Time well spent, while waiting... When I first started reading the blog, I started to think that it was going to end in..."and then I went to the hospital!" How long will the doc let you wait?
