Where there's a will, there's a way...

I hope you are all enjoying your week!

The last time I posted, I shared that I got some sewing done, and showed you progress of my Burda boy's trousers.  Well, I proceeded to sew here and there the whole weekend long, and got all excited to see everything coming together only to have a setback Sunday evening--my daughter got sick!

So Monday, instead of sending two kids to school I only sent one.  However, it has been working out just fine. I am still finding time to sew during my daughter's naptime, and that has helped me gain some progress.  In fact, I only have the following to do:

* attach the waistband

* insert the zipper

* attach the belt loops

* put on the rivets (something I have never done before)

* sew the buttonhole

* hem the pants

It's a lot, but I am handling each part in small pieces.  My husband says that I am a more pleasant person now that I am sewing again.  I am not sure what that means, but I take it that sewing is still something that brings me joy, and it shows.  

So, hang in there, as I hang in there, and I hope to show you some evidence of what I've been doing soon!!

Stay sew-filled!


  1. Sorry to hear your daughter is sick. I hope she is better soon. The previous pic of the black pants look great. Glad to hear you have still been able to make progress. Looking forward to the final reveal!

  2. Hope your daughter feels better soon!
    Sounds like you're making great progress!!


Let me know what you think!
