Business as Usual

I have been incredibly busy lately. I do a fine job at always having somewhere to go or someone to visit. When I do stay at home it is usually to catch up on house work and rest. Tuesdays are usually my catch up days.

Today started with the usual 6 am wake up call by Rohan. Fed and changed him, then started on laundry. I completed 10 loads of laundry today. I believe that is a record! Normally on Tuesday I only have 4 loads to do and that is pretty much the only day I do laundry in a week. I have to wash diapers on Fridays as well, but I don’t have any other clothes to clean. Today was record high because Nick has been sick, so I had extra loads of blankets and sheets to do.  While I was washing all these clothes I was cleaning the kitchen, baking a cake, cleaning out Rohan’s too small clothing, folding loads of clothes, working on some sewing that I have been procrastinating on, and of course playing with Rohan.

On to some of my crafty adventures. I have gotten back into swaps on Craftster and I am having a lot of fun doing them. I have been able to complete a quite a few swaps without buying supplies. My current goal is to use as much of my stash as possible, so I can have more fun with the nice fabrics out there. I have finally completed the 3 table runners I started while away at Nick’s aunts house in February. I went to work on some quilting projects and use her expertise on the subject to guide me along the way. I also completed one additional table runner in that time using some fabric scraps I acquired at her house.

I have also been playing with my embroidery machine. I have spruced up some pants that I have made in the past as well as some t-shirts for Rohan. On a non-sewing note, I have gone through some of my paper and made cards to send with my swap packages. And I have been playing around with digital scrapbooking to make some awesome pages of Rohan.

So business as usual here on the home front. Another busy day almost done, all to get some rest and begin again tomorrow. So, I sew.
