Then I had another child (my third), and my hubby and I decided that it would be in our family's best interests for me to stay home and man the homefront, as it were. And I learned to quilt. Which became my new obsession.
Fast forward to 3 years later, when knitting and crochet projects on instagram and flickr inspire me to pick up the needle and hooks once more. Besides, the sewing machine needs a break.
This week I've seen snow day pictures and posts from family and friends in other parts of the country. Oh how envious I've been. All the fun things you want to do, compressed in a single day. I thought I'd take a snow day this week, too. Of sorts. Because I couldn't really take a whole day to do only fun things, I stole pockets of time on Sunday and Monday.
I started a new project on my faux snow day. Since watching Nanny McPhee with the kiddies a few years ago, I vowed I would make that granny square blanket. After watching Nanny McPhee again last week for the umpteenth time, I'm finally making good on my word.
It's looking overcast today... a good opportunity to steal another hour or so for my faux snow day.
