What have I been up to? Hmm let’s see… it feels like a ton, but really not so much. Just a lot of the mundane family and house stuff. We had a great 4th of July with family and friends. Well, till my little one accidently burn his finger on a sparkler just as the fireworks were about to begin. It was nothing serious but the poor thing was traumatized by the whole thing (as was I) and needed a little mommy love and a bandage, so we left early and missed most of the fireworks. I felt like a horrible mom that it happened and that the other kids had to miss out, but I had to deal with the situation at hand and chock the rest of it up to a learning experience. Note to self: Next year NO SPARKLERS! Mommy just can’t handle it.
Since then it has been all about entertaining the kids and keeping them away from the television and video games. AKA, my sewing time, but I am not complaining because we are having a blast just hanging out and being in the pool. Our summer can be best described by this article I read this morning, because yes my toddler just spent 2 days in the same outfit and the kids are in the pool as we speak instead of taking showers, but hey at least they are not in front of the tv. Right?
Even though the kids have been taking up a majority of my time, I have been able to get a few things done. I made this cute little magnetic pin holder for a friend. She is not a sewer but I thought it would be cute on her dresser to hold safety pins and such. I really hope she likes it. If your interested in how I put it together, I am in the process of writing up a blog post about it and hopefully it will be finished later today or tomorrow.
The other thing I have been working is a quilt. Unfortunately I can’t share to much about it right now. I know, I hate when other bloggers say that to, but since it is impossible for me to keep anything a complete secret, I thought I would share a little sneak peak.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
