Slowly but surely!
















I am still playing catch up, but things are getting better as the family and I get into a routine. I am not saying it is easy, but we are doing it! I have been getting my sewing and art time, and it may not be what I am used to, but it adds up! I have made a few postcards and atcs...the postcard showing is one of a free motioned guitar for a friend and the atc's are for my fabric atc group....I had to laugh because I was putting them in a "Moon" lottery...I found out I was a month late....Oh well! Time just races by...even faster now that every hour is filled with the kids. The little basket my daughter made with scraps of fabric wound on clothesline and then I sewed it on the machine with a zigzag. We are working on some baskets in Christmas fabric now....The next ones will be embellished. Also showing a picture of my doll for the "funky doll trade" on my fabric atc group.....I have to make two more by the end of the month. This one was a pain you know where because I put timtex under the front piece and I had trouble turning it right side out after it was sewn...I wont do that again! That is usually how I learn! My life has done such a 360 since I started this blog...I cant believe I used to be on here all the day...Life is funny sometimes!
