January seemed to drift on by whether we were aboard or not. It went by fast! January conjures up images of “winter work” to me. When one should sit and do that pile of stuff they couldn’t do when the lawn needed mowing or things needed to be canned. My January list usually amounts to more items than there are days.
I moved my sewing machine up to the kids playroom and sat much of the month away cutting and sewing neutral things for the little one.
Though I thought I would always consider myself an organized person, somehow I have been relishing the sewing mess I’ve created amongst the kids play things. It really is a grand room with a grand mess. Henry and I blast records from “Child’s Introduction to the Orchestra” to Neil Diamond’s “You don’t Bring Me Flowers” and of course if we are feeling the groove we will listen to “Sesame Street Disco” with Grover in his 1970’s leisure suit on the cover.
And truthfully I’d be lying if I didn’t admit not only do I try my best smoky voice to all the Adele songs but Henry knows all the words, too. It is a great way to spend January while the outside world spews out ice and snow and various shades of gray.
This outfit is probably my favorite which is why I haven’t done the buttons yet, it needs eight buttons and we all know the chances of eight buttonholes coming out just fine are slim. When I am feeling optimistic I’ll attempt them.
The little duckling is from an old transfer pack, using an old transfer is hit or miss, it took me a couple tries.
For the first time I played with some ink jet transfer paper. I took a picture from a children’s book with my camera and after uploading and editing it I printed it on transfer paper- the kind that is like an iron on.
Ironing it on was almost too easy. I think I’m about to become an iron on freak.
Hope all is well in your world!
