Sometimes things turn out well so I will share with you how I did it.

Insert witty title here

Wow! Life is just busy! I have not had a lot of time to sew or blog lately. I have been somewhat active on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, since they are mobile. I have been busy with band stuff, and dentists and orthodontists and doctors, and kids' school stuff and church stuff. The only things I have stitched the last few weeks were a needle book for the band sewing kit, a Halloween t-shirt for the tooth fairy costume, those cord wraps for my husband and 10 band tunics (plus a couple of tunic repairs after the first dress rehearsal).

Tunics I helped make and my silly girl modeling for us. This is the best photo I have, unfortunately.


I am itching to make something lovely and useful for myself. To do that though, I have to un-bury the cabinet where my fabric is stored from behind a stack of boxes. We have been in the new house for a little over 2 months I think, and we still have boxes EVERYWHERE.
Even though this house is a bit bigger than our apartment was, it is still small. Our 2 car garage in the apartment was essentially a storage unit for everything that would not fit in the living space. Here we are required by the HOA to park our car in the smaller garage that also has 3 built in cabinets in it taking up more space which creates a storage problem.
So, I have spent what free time I have unpacking and purging and tossing and unpacking and organizing and cramming and tossing. I am mentally exhausted from it all and it is stressful living in this cluttered, cramped environment.
So, the thought of trying to move stuff to get to my fabric overwhelms me and I don't sew. I miss it. A lot.
But it really is, most days, just too much for me to attempt.
On the bright side, I have been able to read a few books. That always relaxes me and I can escape for a little while.
Here's to hoping I find my will to find my fabric sometime soon!
