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.

What I am working on

I saw this t-shirt on line and love it. With the $58.00 price tag it is not a possibility so I am going to recreate one.

So I found this McCalls pattern 5493 but will have to make a few changes.

Update: May 2
Well the first draft of the shirt didn't go so well. I made it way to big and the lace did not lay nicely at all. This is so sucky. I am going to bring in the side seems and figure out a better drapey fabric for the insets.
