I can only say that I am awesome in a purely sarcastic way.
If I was serious that would be really annoying.
I am feeling the complete opposite of awesome.
After being extraordinarily productive for weeks upon weeks I have suddenly become quite the opposite.
I suppose the pace that I was working at,
My ankle is thrashed and my back is a disaster.
So I am laying around, covered in ice packs, sad that things aren't getting done.
It is pretty hard for me to do.
I wish I liked it.
But I also wish that the laundry and cleaning elves would visit.
I wouldn't mind ordering up some sewing elves too.
This is the fabric I ordered to make the girls Autumn dresses. I planned to sew them when I was in the mountains, but one of the prints didn't come in time. That is why I made the fun crates instead. So glad that I did, but then as soon as I got home it turned into crazy boutique prep mode and then Kauai. So as December draws near, I have resigned to the fact that the dresses have failed to make themselves.
This is the sweet pattern that I intended to try from The Handmade Dress. Yesterday I stared at it for a good hour. I could recite it to you I suppose, but that doesn't make the sewing machine go or the scissors cut.
So as I pack the fabric back up in the cupboard, I will always have next year. Besides, three matching dresses are even cuter than two right?
In my boo hoo, poor me, sulkiness, I stared at the calendar and realized that the girls need (not need, that I want) Christmas pinnies. Where else do I go to find them than my most favorite pinnie shop in the world? Lassiegirl. Love everything about her, the shop, the fabrics, her extraordinary kindness and the Jelly Bellies that come with every order. If I don't make it to the sewing machine before December 25th rolls around I can at least make it to the mailbox. Much easier!
Look at what is on its way to our house in the next week.
My dream bunk beds are ordered. Although the logistics of moving the girls into the same bedroom is freaking me out, the fact that they will be sleeping on the best bunk beds ever is calming me a teeny bit. (No, I haven't started on the quilts either. Freaking out.)
So, if you can turn back time to September 1st and sew the Autumn dresses for me that would be amazing.
Or if you have any quilting, laundry or sewing elves, send them my way.
Or, if you know anyone who wants to add a room on to our house for free, so the girls don't have to share, that would be okay with me.
Seriously, if you have any good tips about transitioning kids into one room, that would be even better.
