I had a busy weekend. One where I felt like I was doing a lot of work, but getting nothing done. Come Sunday night I wanted to sew really bad. I have a lot of things on my "to make" list that I really want to get to, like, right now. The dishes are piled up by the sink & need to be washed. We are out of sippy cups & small spoons. I made the decision last night to leave them there & sew something with this pretty embroidered vintage pillowcase that I found on my last trip to the thrift store.
So a skirt it became for little Miss Sadie. The pillowcase fabric is pretty thin, so I put a layer of aqua blue striped seersucker underneath. It's pretty & sweet & girly & I love it.
Sometimes, when I am feeling overwhelmed, putting it all aside & allowing for some making time is all I need. Sure my chores are all still there, but I've accomplished something. I've made something tangible & often times something very useful. I can go to bed feeling proud of myself & it's just the boost I need so that I can get up in the morning & actually feel like doing all those household chores.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a mountain of dishes to wash. :)
