When life is busier than usual, blogging and crafting take a back seat at my place. My head is spinning with ideas, I have a gazillion things bookmarked and I feel a little frustrated because I haven't been able to make 'me time' lately. I am sure many of you relate.
This morning I just felt desperate to make something
I stayed in my jama's and the Mister took the big kids to school and did the grocery shopping.(I LOVE having a husband on holidays) I decided to pop Lulu's 'favwet show' on(Barney) and did a bit of sewing. It had to be quick and simple because sewing really wasn't on the agenda for today. After 'favwet show Barney' was watched 3 times, the mother guilt began to creep in and G turned up with the groceries:)
The little sewing fix has left me feeling happy and restored-and WANTING TO MAKE MORE!
I told Lulu, ' Look, mummy made you a new skirt'. She smiled and pointed at it and said 'ohhhh I love that'.
Happy Mama here...
I've used some thrifted blue corduroy, the floral trim on hem comes from some thrifted sheeting and the doily pocket is another op shop find. A very cheap little skirt, cost no more than a few dollars and upcycled everything but the thread and elastic.
Do you feel a bit antsy too..when there is no time for you??
