It’s official – there are not enough hours in the day to do all I want to do. When I became a mom I started throwing my whole self into that – motherhood. Slowly I began doing things I enjoyed again – like reading. As a homemaker, the kitchen became my domain. 3 home cooked meals a day (although that include cereal most mornings) has turned me into quite the little chef. Having so much time to spend in the kitchen has helped me grow in my cooking and baking skills. I can adjust recipes as needed, substitute with what I have on hand, and sometimes make stuff completely up and have it all still taste pretty good.
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.
