Sorry for the lack of posting lately. It's just that every spare moment I have lately, I've been spending it on projects here around the house. Planting shrubs, sewing valance, sewing pillows...some house posts to come soon (I hope!)
And then, I've been designing patterns and instructions for the SEW LOVELY class. Scribbling notes, gathering supplies....
I've also been working on these sets prayer cards. I hope to have the tutorial up for you soon.
Several people have asked me, "How do you find time to sew or do a craft project?"
The truth of the matter is I never ever sit down and do a project from start to finish. I only work on things in small chunks of time and leave them undone in the basement craft area until they are ready to pick up later when I have a spare moment. Sometimes that means that a project, like the prayer cards, are literally done over 2 or 3 weeks.
Those of you with young children realize that uninterrupted periods of time are very rare. When nap time comes you either:
A. take a nap yourself (my favorite option)
B. catch up on laundry and dishes
C. computer time: blog, email, pay bills, etc.
C. do something for just for yourself (like crafting)
For me, I tend to alternate all four options, which means I don't even work on a project three days in a row usually. Sometime I work on things in the yard while the kids are playing or read through sewing instructions while they are eating lunch. But most of the time, nap time is when I can use the time most efficiently.
So all that to say. Sorry folks! I've been remiss on option C (blogging) lately! I'll try to reform. I promise!
P.S. What do you do during nap time?
