Sam is “napping” in Mama’s bed. This boy is a sleeper. It’s a totally different world when you have a sleeper. He’s totally opposite from his sister (who still doesn’t need to sleep!)
If you have been blessed with a sleeper then you should consider yourself very lucky because I can vouch for him/her being awesome and healthy in the upcoming years. But incase you have an owl in your house, and by owl I mean a child who doesn’t sleep now the actual animal, then you better get ready because you have some work cut out for you.
Did you see the blue blankie that he has over him? Well, I made it. Yes! I know.. even I cant believe it. It looks so good and so comfy. He just doesn’t sleep without it and I fell very appreciated for it.
Now let’s come down to the question.. HOW? Well, it takes patience and a bit of skill to make that good a blankie. My mother used to knit a lot and I do remember her doing that most of the time, I kind of picked it up from her, and before I knew it.. It was one of my favourite hobbies.
When Sam was in my tummy, I had so much time on my hands that I came back to it and knew that a blanket would be the best, because a pair of socks or anything else would just grow short and not be used after a while. So the blackie project started and even after he was out learning to crawl, my project was going on.
1 year and 3 months later.. it happened. I finally finished the blankie and gifted it to him. If you have been following my blog for some time then you must know how much he loves it, also proven in the picture above.
To make a blanket is not tough, it just takes a patience and vision. I bought the Brother CS6000i from http://sewingmachineheadquarters.com and got it started just another day like today. Slow and steady, the blankie began.. over the period of 2 years.. it grew and then just became the beloved blankie.
You can also start a sewing project on your own, all that takes is a great machine (like the Brother CS6000i) and some willingness to learn. You can even find great tutorials on the same on youtube and begin from there.
I don’t think it matters where you start from, it’s like life. You start from nothing and slowly and steadily.. you make it into something that you are known for and recognised by. If you are lucky, you might even be appreciated for it in means other than money.. like fondness and the special kindness. For now, he sleeps and I think I wrote too much today, so I’m going to go get some sleep. Ciao! to y’all.
