i love my hubs...lyme and all! he stayed with the kids ALL day on saturday so i could teach my sister to use her sewing machine! i really hadn't planned on being gone all day, but time flies when you're having fun! we hemmed her curtains...then she washed them, and the backing melted together...perhaps we should have washed them first to save ourselves the time on hemming...but we tend to do things backwards...so, curtains in the garbage, i brought over an apron pattern, and i showed her how to lay it out. at the end of the day, we got the whole bottom of the apron done! she was so proud of herself...and she should be--she did a great job! she is now just as in love as i am with sewing! we're thinking of starting a blog together detailing our sewing adventures! not sure when that will happen...but it will at some point!
mom and dad stopped up for a quick visit yesterday. with emily in school, we don't get to see them as much. i miss seeing my parents on a daily basis. just because i'm a mom, doesn't mean that i don't want to see them all the time too!
how is this for teamwork...hubs and i changed david's poopy diaper at 10:00 last night, and he never woke up!! love it.
i have to start taking more pictures! i don't even have anything to throw in this post! oh, i've got it...how about a few things i'm loving this summer?
my new "summer curtains" i'm thinking about making curtains for every season! these were super easy!
