Inspiration

After Ethan was born and we settled into somewhat of a routine, I realized that I had a lot of time on my hands. The kid naps a lot! (Well napped, teething is no fun!) So I decided to get back into reading what I wanted to read, not what a 6th grader wanted to read. I was so excited! Except there was one problem. Once I start I can’t stop. Of course I could put a book down to take care of my baby. But anytime he was asleep I was reading. My husband soon made it known how much he disliked this hobby. (Outrageous! Right?) Actually, it was because he missed me(Awe!) Can you believe that I was ignoring him for the make believe? I am ashamed. But I can’t help it. I enjoy a good fiction novel.

So I had to find another hobby that wouldn’t consume me so much, but that I still enjoyed. I decided to pick up sewing again. I used to sew when I was a kid. (Who sews when they are a kid? Well, I did.) I had actually started to get back into it right before I got pregnant with Ethan. But then I got pregnant… and well we all know that story. But now I am officially back into it.

Today I thought that I would start out this week of unusual blogging(for me) with  what I have been working on lately. Now I wont throw it all at you at once. I’ll start you off with just a few simple things.

Lately I have been inspired by one particular blogger. The day that I discovered this blog, I came across two things that I wanted to make. I was so excited about them that the second I came across them I went to the store, bought the fabric, and made them all in the same day. 

Take a look:

First is my new Fall skirt:

Second are my new fall scarves: (Actually the purple one I didn’t make that day. I made it a few days later, because I was so in love with the first one that I made. )

Carla- I am not very good at explaining. I found this blog post that explains it better than I could.
