Do we ever really get everything done in a day that we set out to get done? I find myself more busy now that I have been a stay at home mom than when I worked outside the home. Between taking my daughter to school and picking her up, homework, home improvement projects, just keeping the house clean and keeping up with those chores, and then-doing my website and designing for the dolls so I can make a little of my own pocket money. Whew! I find I always have to have lists- otherwise I become the SHE(sidetracked home executive)
When I say about the hours in a day-it’s because I wish I had unlimited hours to do what I want to do and not have to take care of everyone else. But then with marriage an kids comes responsibility. Right now my husband is on a surfing trip in Costa Rica on a 60ft Catamaran. At least I don’t have to worry about him this week. Soooo I’ve been doing some painting around the house-mainly repainting my bathroom since he is not around- and trying to sew my little heart out since he is not around to bother me. Only one I have to worry about is the DD.
Anyway, here is a little something I have been working on.
Please don’t mind my area, the pins in the bodice or the wrinkles. These were very quick pics. I still need to add ruffle trim to the skirt and add the corsage to the bodice. I wasn’t sure about this one when I first started it but it’s coming out rather nicely. The ruffles on the skirt will add a lot and I think I might do some ties inside the skirt so it can become a polonaise.
Well I better get back to work……..
