YES! I 'm getting my sewing groove back!!
Since E was born sewing has been almost non existent :((( It is not easy trying to sew with a 2 year and I added a newborn to the mix. HA! So now E is almost 8 months old and I feel like I can focus a little more on my craftiness. I am still nursing so he still gets allot of my time. Half of my time goes to K and dear husband...plus the dogs but there is a small window that is slowly opening just for my sewing machine. YAY!! This past week. I made a motorcycle hat for my dad, started a dress for my mom, made a slip cover for one of hubby's big garage tools, and almost finished a chevron (zigzag) quilt top for E 's big boy bed. Not that he is ready for it but that is another post in itself...soon to come I promise. The boys are finally old enough to sit in my craft room with me and play while I sew. Let me tell you that is so nice. I can't tell you the joy and relaxation crafting gives me. Not to mention the added satisfaction of something I made from scratch without purchasing. I have a very long to do list but the soonest ones will be ones of necessity. Pot holders are high on the list. Right before E was born I took all my old ones threw some out, took some apart to be up cycled. Well that fell by the wayside when E came 2 weeks early. I have yet to make them and I am sick of burning myself using a tea towel. I also want to do an art tote I promised K some months back when I made his custom car crayons. I should blog and put up a tut for that...easy project and great gift idea. I have a few quilts I want to get in the works and some early Christmas sewing. See I do this with everything ...I want to do too much. This is my mid year resolution, lol, I will stop saying and start doing. Lets see how much I can get done. Any who it is nap time so I must go be the bearer of bad news and tell the troops playtime is over!
