My Busy Week





This is the reason for my lack of posts this week. Nathan bought me a Singer sewing machine on Monday and I've been busy all week. I will be posting pictures later of my finished projects. This charming little machine was on $90 at Target. Sarah bought the next model up and I've been helping her work on a really pretty dress this week. We hit a couple of snags but with help from my mom we are just about done. I'm hoping she will wear it on Sunday and show off what a good job she did. It has been a learning experience for us both.
In the midst of this crazy week I had one afternoon of pure quiet and peacefulness. Yesterday Tabitha and Sarah went shopping together for the first time in ages. Andrew was at school and the other two were asleep. I got to visit with Nathan over lunch cause he had already eaten at work. I sat in my chair and did some Cleansing Stream homework and cut out another dress for Aria. I also got several loads of laundry done. It was a great afternoon. No music, no PBS kids, no noise, except the couple times my phone rang.
After some tidying up and some laundry it's back to the dining room for more sewing. I. LOVE. MY. SEWING. MACHINE.

I can't wait to see what you've been up to. I've always enjoyed sewing, but it takes quiet for me to be able to work. I don't have much of that around here! Glad you had a free afternoon too. :)
