I busied myself (read: ran around like a crazy woman) preparing the children to leave, with my in-laws, for a MONTH (gosh that's a long time).
I said last week that I sewed. I did - some fun playful playskirts for Anna:
Sorry for the bad photo (did I mention the CRAZY woman living in my house last week)
Anyway - she loves them and they were super simple.
I'm also working on a HUGE home project - recovering all of the upholstered pieces in my den. I think I might be crazy, but it seemed like a good idea and heaven knows it needs to be done! I've restuffed/rewrapped all of the cushions and covered them in muslin. Now I must make the actual covers. It's a large undertaking to be sure, but I am enjoying the process and it will help this homeschooling mom manage for a MONTH without the kids.
It's awfully quiet around here.
I'll keep you posted!
