I am so excited about the new year. Last year was such a year of change and decisions. This year we will be learning how to better incorporate the decisions we have made. For example, Homeschooling was probably the best decision we made last year. It was a huge one. I fought it for a long time. I didn't want to lose my free time, and quite frankly, I didn't want the responsiblility. When I decided to go for it, I was still apprehensive. I didn't just automatically know what to do. It was a huge learning curve for me and the girls. It still is. I am thankful to have found Classical Conversations. We meet with our community every week for 12 weeks in the spring and fall. My kids love it. I love it. We are both learning so much. I can sing my presidents in order. They can too. It's fun to learn.
With all that being said, obviously I have less time to sew and craft. I miss it. One of my goals this year is to learn how to get that back. Now, more than ever, I realize my need for time alone. I need that because I am now wih my kids all the time. We both need a break from each other. So, I have decided when Finley naps in the afternoon, the kids can play, read, run around, go outside, whatever, that will be our break. I'm not going to clean, that can be done after nap time. That is going to be MY time. I hope to stick to this plan.
So, now crafty stuff.
I am currently working on a few things, but this one is currently my fave. The patternn is Crackle by Aneela Hooey. I love, love, love all the geometric shapes that pop out at you in this pattern. It's like a quilt equivalent of those pictures you used to stare at until the hidden picture popped out. I am using Ruby by Bonnie & Camille here. Love all their fabric so much.
And look at this fabric yumminess! This is my Christmas money haul. Can not wait to use it!
Have a great day y'all!
