As with all things, there has been a silver lining to the restlessness I've been feeling (and truth be told, maybe a little bit of baby blues too). In an effort to keep myself from going stir crazy, I dusted off my sewing machine that had been stashed away, and started sewing again. The last thing I had sewn that was more than just a straight line on a pillow case or curtain was when I was in college. I sewed these two little dresses for the girls and they looked darling in them. Calista's milk belly has expanded a little faster than I expected so the dress was a border-line hoochie mama on her. I think I'll put it away and have her wear it as a shirt next spring.
And while I was rediscovering my love for fabric stores, I ran into some awesome buttons. I thought to myself, "Hmm...I wonder if I could make these into jewlery somehow." So I bought a package of earring studs, trimmed off the backs of the buttons and glued them on to the studs. Each pair ended up costing about a $1.50.
Fun times, and what a great rediscovery of something I had forgotten I loved.
