I had very simple goals for June, but I didn’t quite accomplish them. I did make one more maternity skirt (and was very happy with how it turned out), but I only made one pair of shorts for Johnny instead of the two I was supposed to. I do love the pair I made, and Johnny wears them all the time after an initial meltdown that I’ll attribute to trying to get him to model at bedtime. The good news is, my absolutely wonderful 14-year-old sister will be staying with us on the weekends from now until the end of the month (another sister gets her during the week). I’m excited to get to spend some time with her - and since, to quote Emma, “Kids love Aunt K.”, I’m thinking I might be able to get a little more sewing done.
The fact that my 18-month-old owns only two pairs of shorts would be more of a problem if we were having proper summer weather instead of near-non-stop rain and highs in the low 70s. I turned the heat on at least four times in June, and we never set our thermostat above 67...
Anyhow, on to annual goals:
- Make some newborn cloth diapers (I may have designed and sewn my own wedding dress – including the satin and lace bits – but I’m terrified of sewing cloth diapers and procrastinated that task this month by serging baby wipes instead)
- Make Johnny at least one pair of shorts
- Wash baby clothes
- Pack hospital bags
July “bonus” goals:
- Organize some activities to keep Emma and Johnny busy once the baby arrives
- Have the baby – definitely not a given, but something I would love to see happen this month!
What are your plans for July?
