things are getting done! it is a fine balance between house work, house projects and crafting projects. i find that during Miss. A's naps i am able to do my sewing projects and then at night i can do house things. it justified this with the fact that trying to set up and paint during a nap time would be futile. so now i don't feel so bad working on sewing a few things.
it is so nice to have my sewing stuff set up even if it is in a temporary place for the time being. right now i am working on a wedding gift that has been in the works for about two months. i picked up crewel a
few months back and started making a few throw pillows for a gift. the initial needlework part was finished almost right away and then came the blocking. i found the perfect doily blocking board at a second hand shop and it works just right. i also have been wiping up a few burp cloths for a new little baby. i feel good about doing house things as long as it can be balanced by other projects.
this weekend should be a lot of fun. my father is going to be in town to help me paint a few walls. it pays off to have an artist and painter for a father, he will be cutting all of the edges something he can do without taping the edges. something i am very excited about because that means less work for me. daniel will be out of town all weekend so it will be nice to have some extra help around here.
