And so my mat leave begins.
I have a long list of things I'd like to make and tedious tasks like "do the taxes", but today I'm taking it easy. Reading magazines and actually planning dinner. I spent the night dreaming that I was missing meetings, so clearly my brain hasn't left work just yet, and I'm a little emotional about saying good-bye to the people I love seeing every day. But I know my body - and mind - needed a break before the baby arrives. Decompressing takes time.
On a crafting note: I left the sewing room in a mess after making the above skirt for Sadie, but it was so worth it. I've made two, and they truly come together in 30 minutes. I think it's a miracle, and Sadie loves them. I can see a couple more getting made in my before-baby-future. The instructions are found at the Oliver + S blog, and here are photos posted on Flickr of other ribbon/fabric combinations. I'm totally smitten. And totally going to sew right now.
