Not that you would know since I haven't updated the blog in a while. Mostly because I'm working on projects, sleeping or researching more projects to start. Plus last Friday was my birthday & we took a fun little overnight trip to San Francisco. I decided I wanted to go to the California Academy of Science. I also decided I wanted a mini break from the girls to spent some time alone with my hubby so I invited Grandma along. I'm kinda a genius like that.

So I lost my sewing mojo for about a month and it really just started to re-emerge this afternoon. I finally got some of my little cousin's Christmas present finished. Her American Girl doll is in need of a new wardrobe. & a sleeping bag. I made a t-shirt, layered skirt, casual dress and a party dress (not pictured) so far. I'm still planning on making a nightgown & panties, a pea coat, a corduroy jumper and a pair of fleece pants. We will see how much really gets done. I have the jumper cut and the fabric for the nightgown sitting out but the pea coat & pants might have to wait.
We haven't really been keeping up with MTMs but every once in a while I'll throw together a little something for the girls. I call this one "Let's dip everything in peanut butter & sprinkles." Even the celery was dipped and nibbled.orange vinegar for cleaning, made my own hand soap, deodorant & laundry detergent and starting growing a new little celery plant from the root(?) of the store bought one.(Yes, I'm going super green & I love it!) And I haven't had time to photograph any of those things.
And since I've been so busy, I've been sore lately. So I treated myself to a pepperminty soak & a couple pages of Raising Chickens the other day.
It was so relaxing.
For about 5 minutes, until Mina found me. Next time I'll remember to lock the bathroom door.
