I was re-reading some old blog posts last night and realised I blog in waves. One week it's all about the kids, the next it's all about my sewing. Obviously, I'm having a hard time finding the balance I seek. Lately, it's been all about the kids so here's a sewing post.
I went into panic mode on about Tuesday when I realised I hadn't sewn much new stuff for the big market on Sunday. My sewing room is in the cold part of the house and I haven't been venturing in there of an evening, instead choosing to knit on the nice cosy couch.
Since Tuesday I've crammed a whole lot in and am planning a late night tonight (I will have to borrow Rory's heater).
I've been making some reversible smock-type tops (no name for them yet). In adult and kiddy versions. Here is a kiddy version:And also some patchwork coin purses. My favourite part is putting all the fabrics together and these satisfy my need for 'make it quick holy cow the market is in 2 days and I have nothing to sell.'And here is photographic evidence taken just a few minutes ago showing why I can't combine sewing and child-rearing...
