Mothers of toddlers don’t really get breaks do they. The only thing I’m accomplishing by taking a break from weblogging is finding more things to add to my already long list of things to write about! Oh and watching a lot of tv (I hate Rob and Amber!) And evidently the only thing keeping the creative/crafting part of my life going is this weblog. I was hoping a little pause would help me clear my head, maybe give me more time to get some things accomplished, maybe allow me a moment to see the bigger picture and find some new inspiration. Instead I’ve become slacky mcslacker pants. So enough breaking!
I did manage to finish up one project. The purple baby quilt. Here’s a picture of it all quilted and puckered up with the striped binding on. Word is the recipients are pleased so that’s good.
I also sent out my pincushions for the pincushion swap I signed up for on craftster. I sent off a lily pad and this fellow made from an embroidered vintage toddler’s outfit.
What I have not managed to do and guess I’m not going to get to, is a doll for the Month of Softies. I had a few vague ideas but nothing would come together. I’m disappointed in myself but I don’t want to make something I’m not happy with. Speaking of MOS… I just saw Camilla‘s softie and it’s amazing! All the cute things I’m seeing around are definitely recharging me.
