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.

something cool on etsy

This is an etsy store that sells patterns and how to's to make shoes for both indoors and out. Take a look.

following Grosgrain

Grosgrain which is such an inspirational blog, is going to have a month of free patterns by other bloggers. I can't wait, all the bloggers are amazing, creative sewers. They offer such ideas and how tos that make even the most daunting task seem attainable.

and yes I still can not figure out how to add a link. :O(
Happy Earth day to everyone
I am working on making a dark denim romper from Suede's Simplicity pattern 2222. My mom, in Florida, had to get the pattern for me as my Joann's still had not gotten it. Very upsetting.
I am cutting mostly a 16, I have not been able to get sizing right lately but I hope I have it right this time as I am too A.D.D. to make a muslin.
This is the beginning.
I am putting the zipper as edging in the front yokes and like how that looks. 
More to come, going to sew it together.
