Lazy Sunday Afternoon

It's too hot to go outside and the kids have too much excitment as they look forward to the start of Vacation Bible School this week. I, on the other hand, was tired. And so was Matthew. Last night,we both tag-teamed caring for a sleepless Micah, who probably has another ear infection.

Anyway, my very active kids couldn't keep their hands of anything, not even my fabric scraps, so groggily agreed that CG she could do some sewing. You know, anything to keep occupy the kids so I can catch a cat nap.

So she decided to cut a square of felt and just sew. She really didn't know what she was going to do with it, but I didn't really care if she had a pattern or a plan. I just wanted her busy. ;)

So she made a pocket of sorts to hold her school pencils. Not too bad for no parent interaction:

Now she's says she ready to make a doll dress. I think I'll let her Granny handle that project--perfect for another lazy Sunday afternoon, don't you think? :)

Helllloooooo Toney! You've made my day! So good to hear from you! How are you? Shoot me an email (same old writemelinda at hotmail.com) and let me know how you are.

Baby Micah is 13 months old and into every.single.thing. He's quite busy for such a little fellow.

Hope to hear from you soon... :)
