It's amazing how often my plans change. Take today for example. My dear husband had planned to watch the kids this afternoon so that I could spend some time sewing. On my way to the sewing machine, I went to get Mouse out of her crib from her afternoon nap, and when I opened the door, she had one leg up on the side of the crib, just seconds away from vaulting over the edge onto the floor. This was her subtle signal to let me know that she was ready for the toddler bed we've been saving for her, and it meant four hours of cleaning, reorganizing, and moving furniture so that Bunny could move into Mouse's room and Mouse could move in with Bear. Bunny's "big girl room" is above, and the "little girl room" is below. I have so many projects I'd love to work on in these rooms, including recovering the world's ugliest -- but most comfortable -- chair as you see below, but those will have to keep for another day.
At the end of a month spent working on my list for the Small Projects Sew Along with Crazy Mom Quilts, my list now looks like this:
10. purse for myself (have the supplies, but haven't decided on a pattern yet)
13. quilt & bind Bunny's quilt (in progress)
14. quilt & bind Mouse's quilt (in progress)
15. pillows for the family room (have the supplies, but that's it)
So I had planned to finish everything on the list, but...life happens. What can you do? Honestly, I'm pretty happy with my progress on the list overall. Considering the fact that a few other projects sneaked into the mix this month, 11 out of 15 isn't so bad. Thanks so much to Amanda Jean for organizing this little sew along. I think it kept me more motivated than I would have been otherwise.
Hope you all had a great weekend, and that things went even better than you planned!
