The beginning of another UFO..


My two-year old, Abby, is on a nap strike. Today was one of those rare days where she and my 6 month old, Kayleigh, had a nap at the same time. Usually I am so overwhelmed with all the things I want to do with this time, that I resort to cleaning up the toy hazards strewn around the house or prepping dinner.

However, I find the longer I go without doing something creative, whether it is sewing something for the girls, or knitting, or even reading about creative things, I get a little crazy. A bit grumpy, even. So for the well-being of myself, and in turn, the rest of the family, this time is now craft time.

On Sunday, hubby was kind enough to watch the girls while I made a quick run to Fabricland. I was really good and only shopped for an hour and a half. The fall fabrics are on sale, as well as Simplicity patterns. I am a bit of a pattern hoarder, so I bought eight of them, including a Burda pattern. Most of the patterns are for the girls, but I treated myself to a few as well, since I'm closing in on my pre-preggers weight.

I liked this skirt (view B)so much, I bought some cute grey and magenta plaid fabric and the required notions as well. So today, when Abby fell asleep watching Winnie-the-Pooh, I decided to trace and cut out my skirt pattern. I had time to do just that, and even marinade some pork for souvlaki!

Now I just need time to cut it out of the fabric and sew it... After I finish Abby's Christmas dress, and making the curtains for her room. And her quilt, which I've only been working on since last June...
