I haven't been able to sew a stitch since I finished the last little top; there's been so many things to do that I can't afford even 15 minutes. Our long weekend was entirely taken up with computer work and visiting family, and I was so tired when I got home each night I just went to bed. I'm thinking that Great-Aunties can get just as tired as Nannas when it comes to running after little people.
I haven't seen Max since he was 18 months old; Mereth has visited him a lot more, so he knew she was Nanna. But Logan kept talking about OtherNanna, and Max wouldn't have that. 'No', he kept saying, 'only ONE Nanna'.
When I arrived at the playground Logan was triumphant; 'See!! Two Nannas!' Max thought about that for 10 minutes, then went to his mum and demanded 'I want two Dads'. He had a meltdown when told he was only going to have one daddy; I'm sure it was reasonable to his nearly 3 year old logic. If there could be two Nannas there could also be two Daddys. So funny.
In the interests of my sanity I'm going to iron some fabric tonight, so I can cut it out tomorrow, and maybe sew it later on this week. I'm going to finish the blocks on the design wall first, and then I will start planning a quilt to use up two lots of fabric that I have far too much of in the stash.
When I organised the blue drawers I realised that there were heaps of blues that had red prints, and that I always passed over them when choosing blues. So I pulled them all out, and they are going to have a project of their own.
How much sewing have I done this year?
