I have to remind myself from time to time that I have a job.
A 24 hour MEGA full time job!
Being a mother is not for wimp's!
Do you agree?
Now, I would never say that my job is harder
than anyone else's because I have a big family.
In fact, I think having 1-2 kids is way harder than 4-5 kids.
My hats off to all Mother's!
That's why I don't take custom orders.
*I do have someone I refer people to though*
I have found that as my kids get older they need even more supervision.
I mean, older kids can find much worse trouble than the powdered sugar in the pantry.
It's important to be present and available.
I just can not spend all of my time with my nose
buried in my machine sewing for strangers.
every now and then I get a request that I just can't turn down!
Remember these fabrics?
A super sweet expectant Mom asked me would I
please, pretty please make her a quilt using them??
I think I had ordered the fabric before I could even respond with a yes!
I really love making baby quilts.
And it's always extra motivating when someone dangles
pretty little fabrics before my eyes.
On top of that, it was excellent timing.
She requested my Nina pattern.
It's been pieced, top stitched and now it's ready for binding.
And since it's raining, it's a great day to bind!
I hope someone has sunshine somewhere today!
