Sew Very Much to Do!

I feel like I am working on borrowed time at this point.   Only days from my due date, I go to bed every night wondering if this will be the night (I have gone into labor around midnight with all of mine, so I guess I just assume middle of the night!).  This week has been spent sewing.  First, a few items for the atrium......miniature models of the chalice veils, antimins and eiliton.

 Then, a little sewing for myself......
A daygown for baby.......

 ......and a lot of fun with knits.  
I had forgotten just how easy the Bunny's Knit Nightie Pattern can be, once you get your machine settings right!  Knit fabrics always intimidate me, but these have been great to put together.  I made a few for my other children, and they wore them well up into the toddler years.
And the blue gown with the bunny, bamboo knit.  If you have never handled bamboo knit, it is amazing fabric.  It is like the silk of knit fabrics, so very soft, it drapes beautifully and just screams snuggly.  Can't wait to cuddle up with a newborn very soon.

I went into labor around midnight with all of mine, too, so I know how you feel! Praying for you as you go throughout this week.

I love your little creations. I a quilter, so I've never braved knits. I am impressed!
