Baby Strikes Again

  I had lovely plans for the Project Run and Play Challenge this week. This week's theme is Love is in the Air. Now I'm not a big Valentine's Day celebrator, but this seemed like a really versatile challenge, and as I said, I had lovely plans. Here is the stack of fabric I had to work with:

  Plenty of lovely greys, some sweet hearts, and a little bit of pink to round things out. I started with plans for: a grey corduroy jumper with heart cutouts along the hem, and the pink heart buttons down the back; a pettiskirt; grey fleece boots with big pink fabric covered buttons; a simple pink elastic-waist underskirt; and a cozy grey hooded jacket with the grey hearts for lining.
 Like this (not the best illustrations, but I think they convey the idea well enough):

 Here, I colored in the pink areas for you (the heart cutouts are pink because the underskirt would show through at those points):

 Anyway, those were my plans. However, you may have seen my post last week. That not-yet-here bump caused all kinds of trouble this week... I was so tired that I only finished one thing: cutting the strips out for the pettiskirt. Luckily, this entire grouping will also fit perfectly into the Signature week challenge, so you may see several of these pieces then, providing the impending bump cooperates.

 My bump apologizes for the lack of posting lately. =)
Thanks for stopping by,
