Things have been so crazy, crazy around here. That happens. Pretty much from the beginning of Dec until the kids go back to school in Jan, it's all in, all the time. Big Girl's birthday is mid-Dec and Little Girls is the beginning of Jan. Throw those events in with the holidays and I'm chained to the kitchen 24/7. Don't get me wrong, I love to cook and bake, but the all mess and cleaning…
The day before the kids went back to school last week Little Girl had a 102 temp. Yikes! Even with trips to the doctor, it resulted in a burst ear drum (on her birthday!). Poor thing. ENT appointment soon. Even though 2 of the kids went back, I still had a sick one at home. No silence.
I need my quiet time. I need my silence. I need to just be. Finally getting that and doing some making too. Most of the time I'm in my studio I'm accompanied by only silence and I love that. Occasionally I'll binge watch something on Netflix. Almost through all the seasons of this.
And, there is the slightest possibility that yesterday I had lunch…still in my pajamas. A salad with this for dressing. Don't judge until you've tried it!
The following is a run down of what I've been up to over the span of a couple weeks:
Made a HUGE batch of scones (cranberry and chocolate almond), they disappeared in 8.3 seconds…
My mother-in-law had a birthday at the beginning of Jan. She started using a walker so I made her a sturdy bag to carry things. I used this Harmony fabric for the exterior and this for the interior.
This custom pouch was a special order from my etsy shop. It's only 4in wide and 3in tall. The smallest pouch I've made but what a great idea as a key chain for credit cards, medication, etc.
I've had an idea rattling around in my head for a while, a zippered lunch tote. Little Girl offered to be the guinea pig for a prototype. When I asked her what fabric she wanted she said, "I don't know how to choose, they are all so pretty."
A girl after my own heart for sure. She settled on this deer print with metallic gold trees.
etsy shop? I'd love your feedback. Off to tennis! Teresa
