What are you sewing this week?

I sewed four baby wash clothes. I have fabric for a skirt and a maxi dress. I have a idea for a new jean maxi skirt too.

I envy you ladies for having the time to sew. I haven't sat down in front of my sewing machine in such a long time. I miss the days (and evenings) where I sat quietly, planning, fixing, and making.

My kids are a lot older than yours so I have more time. I am working on making my blog my day job. I need to make more time for it. I tried to organize the house earlier this year. Still working on that. This last year has been really hard for me. I need to make time for the things that give me joy.

I need to adopt your idea, BB, Re: making time for the things that make me happy. Winter time has always typically been my time, where I take on little projects, mess around doing things that give me enjoyment, and even embark on something new if something new comes about, and I really need to just make a conscientious effort to make those things happen.

We only have one life and it belongs to yourself. Don't allow anyone or tasks to control it.

Your advice is very true, BB. I need to learn to remind myself of the fact more often, and follow through.

I have learned the hard way, giving to others all the time. Doesn't work.
