So far, so good...I have to sew the sleeve lining in place and I had to put it down because for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to sew that lining around the hem of the sleeve that has an split cuff. I just have to read some more and get some confidence so I can forge ahead... I can't seem to visualize how this lining is going to be sewn in place! Is it true that the cuff buttons are not actually functioning buttons? So the split cuff is just sewn in place with decorative buttons on the outer cuff?
Enough of that. How about some adorable-ness?
Tonight we had a visit with Sofia. I love my Sofia.
A confident, smart, imaginative and sweet girl among boy cousins...Jonathan, Augie, Levon and new baby Henry. And in a few short weeks, she will have a baby brother. It's interesting to imagine how her little world will change. I wonder what she will think of this new baby? When all the talk and pondering becomes a living reality in their family? It makes me very happy knowing that she is so loved and secure...because that means Sofia will show that same love and protection to her baby brother. All the while she's no doubt going to be bossing him around.
And this Mimi has been sewing for new baby brother and his mama all weekend... Some peeks:
Next weekend, we are going to Chicago to meet the newest grandson, Jameson ...JR and I are both so excited to finally get to spend some time with him, too! I know that in these past four weeks since Jameson has been born, JR has thought a great deal about his daughter...as a mom. And to him, no doubt, it will be a wonder and an amazement when all the talk and pondering becomes a reality and he gets to hold that little boy in his arms.
And the following week, the last of the current crop of baby boys will be born. Sofia's little brother, Oscar.
Six grandsons and a granddaughter.
Some days, it's almost to big for my heart to hold.
