a little sewing & a lot of mothering...

I have missed blogging more regularly, guys!

My darling red-haired boy decided to go on a nap-strike for a little while there, but we've got him back on track (and on a fairly good schedule!) I actually had some time to do a little sewing in the past couple of days.

The potholders in my kitchen were getting ratty (and ugly to begin with), so I sewed up a couple of new sets.

I had never made/used bias tape and haven't done a ton of machine quilting, so this was a good little project to practice on.  If you mess up--who cares?--it's a potholder.  :)

Besides that, I've been doing a lot of this...

And even more of this...

(Tiny baby socks melt my heart.)

And I have to say that I am very happy.  Not as much time for crafting, but much more time for baby giggles and singing lullabies.  My life certainly isn't perfect, but it's pretty dang wonderful.

Anyway, baby is napping...better go work on some things while I can.
Hopefully I'll have some projects and printables to share soon!


  1. I hear ya! My little girl is 12 weeks tomorrow and I'm just now figuring out how to find time for crafting. But my little baby is a pretty great activity too :)

  2. Super cute pot holders and socks! Sometimes it hard no to pressure ourselves to get something done and we forget (at least I do)that we are getting a lot of parenting done. That counts for a whole lot of something. :)

    1. I'm with ya... Sometimes I think, "Oh, I haven't had time to get anything done today." And then I remember that I've nourished and nurtured and mothered a tiny human all day--and that's the most important/rewarding/amazing thing I could ever do. We need to give ourselves more credit!
