I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

the elusive yellow dress

I am so excited to have finished the yellow dress and it fits nicely. I've worn it already but need to get pics of it. I have enough fabric left over to make another style dress. Just deciding what will work with the amount of fabric I have left. I keep thinking of the Tara dress from Burda but my husbands says that I need something with a more defined waist in order to not look pregnant but I love the comfort and ease of wear of that style dress. I should show the picture of the Tara dress that I made with the Dress by Friday on Grosgrains blog. I used an old long skirt that I hadn't worn in years but I just loved the fabric and didn't want to waste it.
There are a couple of other things I want to try to match patterns with and have them all over our dining room table. So many thoughts race through my head and then it just bogs down and I get stuck. I am still working with the up and down emotions and hate it! It seems so silly that I am home and have the fabric and time to make what ever I would like and I am in essence stuttering. Well, I am going to force myself to do some work. I had started making Silly Bandz holder, a couple of finger pin cushions and just all that fabric that is waiting to become something.
"One step in front of the other and soon I will be walking out the door!"
