I am finding that I have severely lack motivation lately. Motivation to do anything, especially housework. I decided in order to get myself going I needed to also be working on a projects that I would enjoy to have something to look forward too. Though we are not pregnant and with the new circumstances probably won't be any time soon, I still want to work in somethings for the "nursery". We ended up re-locating everything in our house and now have two bedrooms. One is the guest room with Stephens office in it and the other is mainly the nursery with our bed in it. The new theme I have for the nursery is greys, yellows, greens, whites and bees (and now that I mention it I do believe I have already mentioned this) but for those reading who didn't know that's the theme.
The bed is pretty bare, as it should be, and the colours are very subtle. Even though I know babies are not suppose to sleep with blankets I thought in the meantime I could add something to give it some more colour. Of course nothing existed in the colours I wanted and my motto is, when you can't buy it, make it. I've always thought quilts were very pretty, they just look so nice and baby ones, OMG cute! I've never made a quilt, never took a class on making a quilt, don't have the quilting stuff, all the fancy tools and such but I decided I'd make a quilt. This was decided as I was walking through Fabricland looking for my next project and I stumbled upon a bee fabric I loved and went from there. I spoke with a lady at the store for about 15 minutes gathering information on how to make a quilt. I came home and cut my squares by hand, no pattern and no quilt cutter thingy, so there weren't all exactly even. I watched a youtube video and away I went. I am at the binding stage and I think that has got to be the hardest part. Well, mainly the corners. I gave up for tonight because I've had to rip the seam three times now and had enough for the night. That being said, it looks pretty darn good. For it being my first ever quilt and having no idea really what I am doing, I'm impressed with myself. I'll post a picture when it is all done. I debated whether or not to sew it together, you kind of have to sew somewhat in the middle but I don't have a fancy machine and I'd die if tried to sew crosses in each square and messed it up. My solution - sew by hand, I'll sew where every square meets just to secure it to the back a bit. I also bought some little bees I may sew on, there so cute.
Since I am almost done that project I am looking for the next. I made a bee mobile awhile back but I think it's too much for right now so I want something a little more subtle. I haven't been on Pinterest in ages but took a gander tonight and found quite a few that I liked so I'll have to try some of them out. When the nursery is done I will post pics. I think I will be quite pleased with it. I also sewed another really soft and extra warm blanket and have to add the binding to it but it as well is cute and goes perfectly in the nursery. Though the nursery may never be filled at least it will look cute! I also think I will make each of our children a quilt and maybe even when we foster, I can make our foster kids a quilt. Something special to show how loved they are. (I may have never mentioned it but we are considering fostering down the road as well as adoption and hopefully our own child or two)
I didn't get anywhere with the doctors today, my High Risk OB should be calling back Monday. I spoke with his secretary and she said he doesn't normally treat infertility but since he knows us so well he may (crossing my fingers and toes) and that I'd be able to get in somewhat soon. I really do hope we can get somewhere with him. I hope all he suggests is progesterone. I was scared when my doctor said Clomid. But after doing a lot of reading, it sounds like they use that if you don't ovulate. That's not my problem so I'm hoping I don't need it and all I need is some extra progesterone. I also hope that can be dealt with soon. We still aren't planning on trying but I need to know that my body can handle it. I need a cycle or two with progesterone to see if my body can even do what it is suppose to while on it.
As for the other thing I can't mention yet...I'm slowly getting ready for it. I met with someone yesterday and went shopping today, sorting some things out and next week I plan on diving right in. I know most of you probably have no clue what I am talking about and for right now that's good. I have a blog all set and ready to go when I can post away...but it may take awhile.
Garden cleaning and shoe shopping tomorrow, church on Sunday and a week without the car....I have to make sure to get things I need for the mobile project before I become stranded at home for a week! Pictures to come.
