You get excited about getting a new book of sewing projects, haha. I saw the book 'One-Yard Wonders' at Michael's last week and had such an impulse to buy it. But I was a good girl and went home and looked on Amazon and got it for half the price, haha. I got the book in the mail today and I cannot WAIT to dive into it and make some things. Sewing is such a stress reliever for me. It makes me concentrate on one single thing instead of 2,009,865,976. Then, when I am all done with whatever I was working on, I actually feel like I accomplished something. I mostly get my ideas from online tutorials (which are GREAT), and this book has some pattern work in it so kind of interested to see how that will work out as well. I'll let you know how my experimentation's come out!
This week has been super hard, very bittersweet. My best friend's husband got an amazing new job opportunity with all the bells and whistles, and I could not be happier for the opportunities this brings to them. BUT.....it's allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the way in Houston, TX. There's the kicker. The movers came this week and packed up every last item and took it on the road, headed to their new house. It would be strange for any of my friends to move away. But this is a friend that I talk to countless times a day, see almost everyday, and whose kids absolutely adore each other. So, something tells me that this one is going to be a little bit harder. What's worse is that I know how hard it must be on them, and it breaks my heart even more. She is such a strong woman that I know if anyone can pull it together, it's her. She's always looking on the bright side of things. Maybe I'll try that! Now I'll have an excuse to vaca. in TX! Hmmm, somehow that doesn't make it any easier :o(
My hubby is working the Darius Rucker concert tonight, so while he's off rubbing elbows with the rich and famous...I will be here, putting the kids to bed and doing laundry, haha.
Here's a pic. of my little monster in the St. Paddy's Day shirt I posted about!
