Long time no see.....well....and a fun Christmas idea too

So, I just realized I haven't posted since July.....crazy.  So much has been going on, mostly centered around our newest addition that hasn't made her appearance just yet.  I went into preterm labor in early October and the doc's were able to stop it with some nasty meds, but it worked and then I was put on bedrest for 3 weeks.  Luckily we have lots of family and friends around to help, as I don't know how we would've done it with our other 4 kids and my hubby working and going to school full time with me not able to do much.  I must say though that God is so wonderful and showed me a few things as well as strengthened my marriage in the process......  I've been off of bedrest for almost 3 weeks now and our girlie still hasn't decided it's time, although I thought for sure she was coming last wednesday, and even this morning.  I have a few hours of contractions or several hours of contractions that come and go.  The doc said I was 5 cm dilated last monday, and the babe is big and I have almost double the amount of amnio fluid that's the doc said she's really surprised my water hasn't broken and that I'm still prego.  So, needless to say I'm sort of in limbo and I don't really like it.  Ugh.  Oh well, God knows what he's doing, right?  Anyways, being on bedrest for that long I had plenty of time to find loads of fun projects I want to do and so I thought I'd start sharing them with you......this is one I haven't started yet, but really do want to do before Christmas this year as all we have now is a plain feltish red skirt that isn't really that fantastic.  Let me know if you make one, or if you find a template to sew the skirt part and how it goes.  Thanks for hanging with me and we'll see if I can get a project posted every week till Christmas, some with pics of the finished product of my own {;0)
