Thank the gods, inspiration for the Habitat Challenge finally struck around 10:30 Monday night. A plan was sketched, Habitat fabric was cut, a test block was sewn. Things were looking up. Until I was lured away by Parks and Recreation (damn you, Netflix!). My project was dunzo for the evening.
I fully intended on getting the rest of the fabric cut and all 16 blocks sewn yesterday. After getting the older kids off to school, I built an elaborate train track for the little guy and let him go to town playing with Thomas, Salty and friends. But I had conveniently forgotten about the planned power outage to upgrade a transformer in the neighborhood, so no sewing for me. I couldn't even cut my Kona Moss into the 69 pieces required for this project because it hadn't been ironed yet! I thought I might get to sew because the power came back on at 2:30 pm, but the transformer blew half an hour later. On the bright side, I didn't have to make dinner.
So now, with Kieran down for a nap, fabric mostly cut, and plan in hand, it's time to get down to business. I'll be at my sewing table if you need me.
