Hello! I've been up to my ears in cleaning, organizing, and teaching. Woo! You would think that my house would be completely organized and cleaned after all the time I've spent on Pinterest in those areas, but alas, pinning does not complete the job. In real life, however, I have managed to purge some things, and I am hopeful that in our next move in the way far off future will not involve an over packed 26 foot truck and then some. But who am I kidding?! For every item that goes out, we probably replace it with two more. Isn't that how it goes?
Bella has started sewing lessons. I should have taken a picture yesterday when she was actually bathed, dressed, and had her hair done! That has become a struggle with my girls in these lingering wintery/springish days, getting them out of pajamas. Because if they aren't leaving the house, what is the point?! How can I argue with that when it really boils down to less laundry for me? Truly, I do make them get dressed most days, though.
Back to sewing lessons.... I have searched high and low in the world of internet, and finally found some children's sewing lessons, all laid out, that tell me exactly what to teach her. My favorite, and what we are generally following, can be found at A Jennuine Life. We are both enjoying the pace and the ease of her lessons in a series called "Tiny Sewists." We have only just begun, but I foresee both of us learning much from this series, since I can only sew a straight line!
Have any of you picked up your sewing lately? I am contemplating trying a pattern for a summer tank dress. It doesn't seem too complicated, and there are no frilly stitches, so we shall see!
