Making Myself Focus

OK, I am done procrastinating. Finished Emily's fairy dress tonight. One down, two to go. I feel machine-like this week. Two children sick (not Kate, fortunately). Every morning the husband and I ask each other how we feel and whether we are getting the symptoms or not. This morning I decided that I don't have the time to get sick. After Halloween and Jenna's birthday maybe I can put some time aside to be sick. But this week- sorry, all the slots are full and double-booked and then some.

No photos of fairy dress for now. Two reasons: one, snow and sunlessness for days and days, and two, I suspect if I even pause to touch the camera, I will start procrastinating again and sew felt toys or a chicken or something.

P.S. I do not like this weird fabric suspiciously known as "Special Occasion Glitter Satin". It is like paper and makes bulgy seams. This is the last time I will be taken in by my children's Please Mom Buy This Pretty Cloth trick.


  1. I gave your blog an award. =)

  2. Fairy dress sounds fabulous! I am making tutus for all small girls we know (including my own) and am cursing the glittery tulle I bought... house is covered!


Thank you for talking to me! If you have a question, I might reply to it here in the comments or in an email.
