I was a little blue yesterday. I think it might be that the busyness of the summer is over and I’m back to a little bit of “normal” whatever that means. I dropped the boys off at school and was back home by 7:30. I didn’t have any laundry to do, the house was clean and picked up, Craig was at work, the office didn’t need me and I sat down on the couch and just kinda’ looked around.
And no, exercising didn’t cross my mind.
It never does.
After wallowing for a few minutes, I realized that wasn’t fun either so I decided that a project was in order so I went to Jo-Ann’s in search of one. Never mind that I had an unfinished quilt from January upstairs.
I wanted to try my hand at making a tunic top but I chickened out at the last minute because I’m not super confident in my sewing skills so I decided to make a reusable shopping bag because a) it looked simple and b) it looked like an hour project.
SIX HOURS LATER…..
I had five pattern pieces cut out when it said I would only have three.
I had ditched the pattern because I didn’t understand the directions.
Dinner was looking questionable.
It was relaxing.
In the end, though, I wound up with something that resembled nothing like the picture on the front of the pattern and I could have bought half a dozen reusable bags at the store for what I put into it.
And the boys said, “Nice shirt, Mom.”
Have a nice day.
