I am so glad to be back after deciding to take a break from blogging. Trust me, I did not realize how much I needed a break until I took one. It was wonderful to simplify my schedule and not stress myself out with a long list of "things to do."
So I'm sure you're wondering what I have in store now that I had all this time to collect myself.
Actually, my next project has to do with the fact that today is the first day of preschool for my two little ones. I cannot explain the amount of jubilee that I felt in dropping them off!! Finally, I am free (cue sinister laugh)!! OK, I'm not really free, but I do appreciate having my own free time for the first time since having children.
To prepare for their first day of preschool, the hubby and I spent this past Labor Day weekend shopping for school clothing and supplies. We got a lot of things that the kids could wear as the weather gets cooler, but I have to admit that I am so bad at transitional wear. I am such a "get it as it comes" person with some things, and a "prepared" person with other things. So I am so thankful that I sew! That way I can fill in the gaps of what the kids need as they need them.
And right now my son needs more pairs of pants. I think I have missed the opportunity to sew him a pair of shorts (or maybe not, it stays hot here late into the year), but he could always use a pair of pants. So that is what is next on my agenda...
Remember these pants from Burda magazine??
Well these are a great pair of pants to get me sewing again! I will get a chance to try out a Burda pattern for the first time, and if all things turn out well, I will get to put another smile on my son's face!
Well, I am so glad to be back!! I hope all of you are enjoying your September so far.
