Here's one of the baby bibs I came up when I was making baby shower gifts for my niece. This free pattern is available as a pdf download through Ravelry (click HERE to for the pattern). The pattern also includes instructions to make a matching baby sized washcloth.
It's a simple basketweave pattern with an offset strap. You should be able to get 2 bibs out of a ball of cotton yarn such as Peaches & Cream or Sugar & Creme.
I'm calling it the Basketcase Bib. LOL!
I'm looking for something to laugh about. Stress from a number of different things pushed me to the limits this week. I ended up in the ER early Tuesday morning. I was stressed enough until one comment made by my doctor on Monday afternoon finally did me in. Nothing like being told you may have a blockage in an artery and to please go to the ER if you feel any pressure in your chest!!! After bloodwork and a chest x-ray that afternoon, I waited all evening for a promised call back from the doctor. No phone call. Can you feel my stress level rising? Shortly before midnight I called our insurance 24-hour nurse line to see what, if anything, I should do. Her verdict--go the the ER immediately. I did. My blood pressure was high. Are you surprised? I'm not! After more bloodwork, another chest x-ray, and a stress test, I was pronounced healthy and released. I had a panic attack.
I haven't had to cope with this level of stress since I was 27 and working as a legal secretary. After 13 months of working for attorneys, I was ready for the looney bin. I quit my job and learned to deal with my stress. The de-stress lessons I learned at that time had served me well for many years. Must be time for a refresher course. :)
I'm taking it easy, being more protective of my free time, spending time with the people I love, and doing the things that make me happy. There are things that need to be done but they aren't going anywhere. They'll wait until I'm feeling more able to tackle them.
