With so much time devoted to feeding my family, and just staying on top of daily chores, my other hobbies got left behind. This last Christmas I decided to start sewing again. It's not something I was ever great at, but I did enjoy. So I made some hooded capes for my nieces, and a hat for the littlest one. There was supposed to be a matching dress with the hat, but I ran out of time. I finally made the time to get the dress finished - 3 months later. I am really pleased with how it turned out.
Of course now I need to remember to get to the post office with it before she outgrows it.
I am actually really excited to have accomplished this. I plan on many more sewing adventures in the future, and perhaps more tutorials to share with you! Now I just need to find the hours to craft, go running, scrapbook and garden. So many fun things, so little time in the day.
This week we should be finishing our bathroom remodel. It's also the end of the month - YAY - so our menu this week is real simple! Enjoy
