A bit of sewing!

Friday I was supposed to be doing laundry, cleaning, packing, etc as we were going away for the weekend.
Instead I did some sewing. Because, well, I wanted to LOL!

But, tell me, wasn't it worth it:

The kids picked out the fabric and each decorated the white fabric on their bag.

I followed the Treasure Bag directions in the book Handmade Home by Amanda Blake Soule (who I so want to be like when I grow up and also I'd so move into her house if she ever invited me and my family!).

And you know, when I saw this grin:

It was so worth blowing off the housework!


  1. I agree. Its so worth not scrubbing the toilet when we create beautiful things that make our children smile like that. Would they have smiled if you had showed them a shiny toilet? I think not. Totally worth it!

  2. B - Those are fantastic!! When do you start selling them? :-)

  3. Love that grin! Housework never lasts long, but I think that grin will:)


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
