I am blogging and he is napping! Triumph! I am starting to be able to not nap with him daily- some days I can't fall asleep, others I feel exited and creative , like today. Also like Saturday, when I made some freezer paper stencils in a mad frantic crafting session. It was great! A bit of a washed out picture, but there you go. I ofcourse I am thrilled with the tea one, since I am a fan of tea.
My goodness, the summer is nearly over and its been so lovely. Babies get way better after they turn a year old. Finch cracks me up daily and is so cuddly and gives hugs and kisses. He is starting to sleep a tiny bit better and so I am starting to feel a bit more human and creative. We have spent lots of time at parks, in the "AAN" - the sandbox with the "mammies" -tractors and "diddin" - diggers. He likes the wading pool which is a development from the start of the summer when he would just hold his leggies up in the air like a frog. Garbage day is desperately exiting when the "baum" -garbage truck- comes right down our street.
Things will start to get busy around here as I start work soon on not one, but two new books in tandem- gulp! I am blessed to be staying home with Finch, but I will be working...somehow, sometime! At nap time? hrm...a work in progress.
Here is a new section called...."Guess what?"
- I am getting a couple of brain cells back!
-I am enjoying the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency on DVD- I found it at a garage sale! I loved the books and I love the series! It makes me feel so good inside, a kind warm show to see.
-I am limping along with an English paper piecing project with some slighly uneven bits bits of fabric. I don't even care! Such is crafting for me lately - working fast before I get interrupted. Good enough is good enough. I am making a litle purse, I think, with squares.
-Knitting a dishcloth which I have frogged 7 times! Yes 7, cant get it right and the decreases keep going bonkers. This is it though, I am not frogging it again. It is called the idiots dishcloth for heavens sake. I just need to look it up online, to get it right. OHHHH! It's TWO decreases on only ONE side!!! boy oh boy. Now I am cooking with gas.
- I did this banner for this blog- Dr. Lisa'a Booklist. I think they liked it okay!
-Finch and I went to the workroom the other day and aren't they having a sale?? So I had to buy some fabrics for only five bucks a yard!! see below- YUM!! I am going to make a easy easy skirt with an elastic waist for fall, with the apples.
