The Surprise



Yancey and Andrea are beyond the reach of the blog right now, where they are on dial-up, and when they get access, they'll spend it on work and e-mail, not on reading my blog.

So here it is, the surprise I sewed for them last weekend. I'm still kind of inept at sewing, but I made them a diaper bag and matching changing pad for their upcoming life-changing event, which is scheduled to occur in the spring of 2009.

It's still in the mail, and I'm missing their baby shower tomorrow because I just couldn't fit in a drive to Maryland and back this weekend.

I sewed in pockets this time, a first for me and bag-sewing. And I tried to use non-cutesy fabrics so that Yancey could carry the bag as well as Andrea. Though knowing Yancey, he wouldn't care in the slightest if anyone looked at him sideways. He'd probably do a little dance for them.

Incredibly impressive (says the woman who just burned jalfrezi-from-a-jar onto the bottom of her wok. I am not rocking the domestics today...)

I hope it doesn't bust the first time you use it...

Wow, Marie, that is a rockin' diaper bag! We both love it. And it comes with a matching changing pad too... A very nice ensemble. We will of course write you a real official thank you note, too, but that might take us a week or so!

Can we wait and have the sprog write it? I realize it might take a while.
