Sunday Rest

I have had a particularly blah sort of week. I’ve felt more exhausted than exhausted. Gladys hasn’t been sleeping well, life with a house full of munchkins is non-stop, my husband’s work is crazy busy, and he has his school work, too. To top it all off,  I think my body might be throwing in some postpartum hormonal craziness just for fun. yay! 

Life keeps happening so fast, I feel like I will never catch up.

Currently, I have on my mind…

sewing Duncan’s quilt top * designing a clutch wallet inspired by CottonPurr * digi-fying the suitcase pattern * making aprons for some recent brides * tailoring my jeans * clothes sewing for my boys and girls * daydreaming up the perfect trench * adding some new useful features to the blog * posting craft fair surplus on Etsy * and then there’s, you know, my real life. ha!

But today, was a true “Sunday”. Gorgeous. Commitment free. Relaxing.

Thank you, family. I needed it.

Here’s to more peace in the coming week!


Update: Duncan’s Quilt project is now finished!

    oh man. I just realized I need to come up with an All Saints Day and Halloween costumes for the kids too. sigh. I knew I was forgetting something.

    And thank you all for your lovely comments. :)

    Super fast idea—paint some white muslin with blue stripes, wrap it around and you’ve got a couple of cute Mother Theresas!! (We did that 2 years running now :)

    I have a question for you. What is the pattern for Duncan’s quilt? Those shapes (especially the crescent ones) looked suspiciously like some I had picked up at an auction…in a box of yarn. I don’t quilt. I crochet. I haven’t the slightest idea what to do with the pieces, except throw them away. Thanks for any info you have. I hate to waste the fabric, but I don’t really have many needs for the pieces. :-(

    I really have no idea how you find time to do anything! Just the one baby is keeping me so busy. It’s all relative I suppose. I know I don’t know the meaning of busy yet… It’s an inspiration to me that you get projects and so on done. There is hope!
