Our New Normal

10735601_198767150309570_1461045788_nSweet Diana is 7 weeks old now and we are all slowly settling in to a new routine. I’m even finding time to sew in between catching up with work and keeping up with the never-ending housework. (seriously, will it ever end?)

10787865_874339549251585_1988092098_nI find that I can fit a lot of TO DOs into my day but completing tasks is not so simple. Starting projects is easy and tempting…

10731619_322124651302963_312864909_nSome days all I want to do is sew and sew but in the absence of that, I give myself the gift of at least 15 minutes a day with my sewing machine.

10755786_1559162237653809_473843075_nSome days that means I only have time to clean out the lint and oil it,,,

10748072_454857501323519_276497927_nBut I have finished a few small projects ({Take Flight Art Smock} and {Sweet + Spooky Halloween Mini Quilt}) and made progress on several that have been sitting untouched since my last quilt retreat (in June or July?).

10724943_711571812258519_1448043671_nI do get to stare at this beautiful face every day, which makes up for all the sewing I’m missing.

    What a beautiful girl! Congratulations! I love her dark hair.
    My daughter is also 7 weeks old, and once every 2 weeksI see the chance to sew.Hope it will get better. 15min a day sounds doable. Will have to try that.

    She is SO beautiful. I love all that hair (and am jealous as both of mine were baldies!). One tip i would recommend, if she likes the swing, put it in your sewing room. I had one child who did and one who didn’t like it. But the one who did, loved to watch me in the sewing room from his swing. That was a heavenly time period! :)
