Whistle While You Sew

May 6th, 2010

My mom is amazing. She comes over every week now to help me out around the house. Mainly she cleans the bathrooms and vacuums. Can you believe that?! I am so thankful to her because honestly, just looking at the vacuum cleaner makes me hurt. It’s so clunky and heavy. One day I’ll get one of those fancy vacuum cleaners and I’ll love it so much I’ll vacuum just for fun… ya.

Anyhow, this week mom came over with her sewing machine. I told her that I bought fabric while I was in Toronto a couple of weeks ago with the intention of making throw pillows for the window seat in the baby’s room so she took the liberty of bringing her Singer sewing machine over to whip them up for me. That’s right, I just stood by and watched her in action. I did make her a nice dinner though so it wasn’t exactly slave labour.

This is what she started with…

And this is the finished product! Aren’t they cute and cheerful!


  1. The pillows look great! Love the color choice. It seems as though this baby is entering a family full of love and great family values.
    I have really enjoyed following your pregnancy these past months. I am 25 weeks pregnant with my second child (both girls) and it's nice to hear about someone talking truthfully about the whole experience.
    I wish you much happiness and love in your new adventure. It seems you have it all under control, you just need the baby to arrive :)
