thinking & doing
For so long I've been thinking of sewing this or that and when the time comes where I might have an hour I kind of freeze up, can't decide on what to sew, what fabric to choose and on.. After the funk of this last week I became a little desperate to make something ..anything.
I always think a little better with the least amount of noise so when my husband took the children out- I suddenly got moving. My hands cutting, sorting through materials and my head keeping out of the way. My new sewing machine given as a generous gift by my mil, was smooth and humming along without any naughtiness and it was all just right.
I went to bed that night saying to my husband sounding very much like my children- Look did you see what I made?!
Well I havn't finished it and this next bit will probably take me forever but just maybe if I keep a basket by the lounge or the bed I might pick it up and do a few stiches here and there you know in between feeding the six of us and cleaning up after all that eating and reading the twenty or so books Bella brings me to read to her at rest time ( and other times), and reading the Hobbit to the elder two which I'm trying to just keep to one chapter a night but Oh I had forgotten how good it is.
So here it is my first ever little quilt... for a very special little someone.
