sew 12 update

I am so proud of myself for sticking to this challenge. Not that it was that huge of a challenge, though, since I need to craft like I need to breath. I always need a creative outlet to pour myself into to stay sane in the middle of my everyday life. The challenge is that for 12 months, 12 days a month, I will sew for 1 hour. I've had months that I've culminated much more than just the 12 required and rolled over into the next month which worked out perfect because sometimes I didn't have any time to sew on another month. Hmmm. Too confusing?

Well, suffice it to say that I've sewn my required 12 hours for all of the months from January to July. And for this month of August I've already sewn 9 hours. Hooray! *victory dance* And I have so much more to sew for this month. I've been working on baby quilts, planning to give a couple of dolls some hair, mending one special stuffed pirate monkey that Josh & I brought back from our Key West vaca for Todd, & mending one of Kate's church dresses.

I still need to take pics of the diaper clutch that I made before Alice was born, Kate's new apron, oh... and Alice's blessing dress. Why haven't I posted about it yet?! It's lovely & I can't wait to share it with you. Just as soon as I take pictures of it. I better get on that.

I tried it and failed miserably! I really want to force myself to sew more though.

GOOD for YOU!!!
