My creative side is back and in full swing.
I am so happy to sit down and make things again.
I started with a copy of Mollie Makes and I had to sew up these super cute Betty Dolls first.
But I found what I liked best and I adore how she turned out.
This pattern was super simple, although they did make a few mistakes in the printing and I had to adjust some pieces, but other than that she is very easy to make.
Once that was accomplished I started on some letter embroidery hoops the magazine also gave templates for but I want to make my own word so I just free handed. I want to use vintage hoops for my hanging so it will be a bit before this project is really done. Maybe I will hit a thrift today to seek out some hoops.
Then we hit the Lowes Build it For Kids project my boy was super excited to start, it was a toy from Toy Story they were to build.
But if you have a child with Autism or know a child with this, you know the fun doesn't last long when a task is new and put before them. As all the other parents were helping and doing a task together, my boy has a mind of I CAN DO IT MYSELF no matter what.
Our day went on and once a tantrum hits it is hard to recover.
I was exhausted, and so was the boy, as Sunday evening rolled around and all I wanted was him to fall asleep so I could breathe.
I didn't breathe til midnight...then the cat bit me...Sigh.
But today is a new day. School week begins and I will spend my morning back at releasing my tension into fun projects.
I have a cute surprise and I have to wait to share it here.
I am hoping it turns out like I see it in my head. One half is already finished and I am thrilled with it. Off I go.
