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.

I have been doing stuff just not blogging like I should. I finished a Simplicity 2350 Cynthia Rowley bag. I used some cool scraps of cotton I had. The fabric has flames on a black background. I used some abstract feather silky print and red silky fabric for the lining. The bag sports a pleather bottom and lower side and also on the rim. I used the pleather on the bottom also to save on fabric because there was limited flame fabric. I literally had to piece it together to make it big enough to make the bag. This is a gift for my niece who turned 15. She said she liked it. I am also entering it in PatternReview's contest.
