52 in 1: WEEK 35 - cozy burpcloths

My house is still such a mess. Not in complete shambles, but there is still so much stuff EVERYWHERE. Not to mention I haven't even got close to being able to pull out all of my decorative little doo dads. In unpacking, I'm learning to take it one day at a time. Small victories are still victories!

So the other day, Alyssa mentioned that she wanted to make some burpcloths for a gift. I needed to make some for Amy for a baby shower she was soon attending (which was today, nothing like me waiting til the last minute), so we planned to just pound them out as the kids went buck wild in my basement. And that's exactly what happened.

I know burpcloths aren't the most interesting or involved project for a 52/1 (even though the girly fabric is so pretty... I used the softest flannel), but, as I said, small victories. AND, knowing that Alyssa was going to come over and sew with me, I had completely organized my crafty/sewing area in the basement (full tour coming when I feel it's pretty enough to show off, ha!) the night before. BIG victory there! Ahh, it is wonderful to have a space to create. So wonderful. So grateful!!!
