Do you ever feel like you just suck at life? Like no matter what you do, no matter how great of a day you are having, you just feel miserable overall? I don't know if it's because I've been unproductive on the crafting front or if it's because myself and my two toddlers are sick or a combination of the two (or something else for that matter) but something deep down inside of me just doesn't feel right.
I seem to be carrying on as normal, but there is this feeling in the pit of my stomach that I just can't shake. It's a feeling of dread like something is going to come crashing down on me at any second. Too many balls in the air maybe? I don't know.
I finally started getting my act together and made some progress on my weekender last night. Here it is, ready to have the lining hand sewn in. I'm pretty sure I'm not doing things 100% according to the pattern, but whatever I am doing is working so I'm flowing with it.
I did make some changes, like everybody else who has made this bag has, I will share those when I finish it up.
I have had a pretty exciting week, starting with the arrival of this bad boy.
My husband and I discussed other ways that I can help contribute to our income. I've been pretty adamant that I want to continue to be a stay at home mom even when these two little ones start school. Plus, our trusty van, that I have been driving for 10 years now, decided not to be so trusty anymore. So now we have a new van payment. That goal to do a craft show is going to have to become a reality, x100. We're supposed to be getting a flea market this Spring, my hope is to be able to set up a table there and start getting customers from that.
I have been practicing with it, this is the first thing I stitched up...
...which I promptly turned into a pouch.
It has a couple of mistakes and for that I will treasure it. It definitely helped me learn a few of the functions that the machine has!
This also came in this past week.
Know what that means? Those patterns I have been promising are going to be a reality very soon!! I have three in the works my friends, THREE. And one of them uses the Mod Pop templates which means if you have purchased those, you will have another option to use them. Whoo hoo!!
Also, I am miserably behind on emails. My inbox is in quite a sad state right now, so bear with me while I work on replying to all of your wonderful comments. I do value each and every one that you leave for me, they definitely bring a smile to my face when I read them :)
