Ladybird theme Crib sheet set

I woke up today feeling like I had stones hanging from my head. For the last few days I haven’t been feeling well. Third trimester is tiring and my little baby has been keeping me up all night and I’m left with continuous headaches all through the day. However I’ve been trying my best to get everything ready for the time I get to the hospital. I’ve already packed all of the baby’s stuff in a cute basket and am halfway through packing my bag.

And as promised in the previous post here are the pictures of the crib sheet set I sewed. It has two pillow covers; two bolster covers and one crib sheet. I made it a ladybird theme. I’m also thinking of making a matching diaper stacker since I have some left over fabric.

Anyways hope you all have a wonderful day. I don’t think I will be blogging much from now on since I’m taking my maternity leave tomorrow. I know not many people are reading my nonsense but to anyone who has ever visited, thanks a lot. Hopefully I’ll be back after delivery. Till then ta-ta!

Sewing for baby

Just sharing with you three little dresses I made for my little baby to arrive. (EDD 19th March, gender unknown)
Yup, I'm in my last few weeks now..excited,scared and nervous!!!

I used baby cotton to make all three dresses using patterns I made on my own. This is my first time sewing small dresses as well as making bias tape and I must say it wasn't easy at first. But as using bias tape brings such beautiful finishing touches to any project, I'm glad I went on with it.
The first two dresses have snap buttons and the third one has a tie back.

I have also finished sewing three sets of crib sheets with matching pillow and bolster covers. Will post pictures soon.

Till then,bye bye:)

Today, I’m feeling lucky....

That I’m pregnant. I’m lucky that I’m healthy enough to carry the little one within me. During the first three months I kept thinking I wouldn’t make it through, that I was too weak. I had Hyperemesis Gravidarum and it was the worst three months of my life. I couldn’t walk on my own couldn’t eat or drink anything. Even talking made me nauseous. However, I am now in my 32nd week of pregnancy and feeling way better than before. I feel lucky that it all got better. That my baby is healthy and growing well.

My heart goes out to all of them who had had to go through miscarriages or necessary abortions. I know it must be painful. There are so many people around me who had been trying to conceive, for months, some for years. Only now do I know how hard it must be for them. I know your pain ladies; hopefully someday soon you’ll be where I am today. I pray for that.
