The good, the bad and the sew-y

Bad: My laptop decided to not acknowledge the existence of the internet this week. I could check my email through my iphone, but that’s about it unless I deigned to use the children’s computer.

Good: I finally spent some time redecorating the room that Adelaide and Arabella share. I’ve been working halfheartedly on it for a year or two now, but Mister set up a new sewing nook for me. That, coupled with the sudden bounty of free time, and I actually got some curtains and bedskirts sewn.


Why wasn’t my house immaculate and all my projects finished before the internet came to pass? Oh yes, I read books back then. Any excuse to not do what I’m supposed to!

Music to sew to: (you know I love it super old-school!)
The Ink Spots– “I Don’t Have to Set the World on Fire” (I could listen to this 100 times a day.)
Fats Waller— “My Very Good Friend the Milkman” and “Every Day’s A Holiday”
Georgia Gibbs— “If I Knew You Were Coming I’d Have Baked A Cake”
King Cole Trio— “Frim Fram Sauce”

  1. jealous of that serger. Isn't it amazing what we can accomplish when we don't spend time on line?

  2. Luv your blog!! Cute ideas luv cake in a jar. Wish you would do Facebook, so I could follow you– just a thought. Thanks for sharing your cute ideas.

  3. I always managed to use up my time without cleaning or anything before internet, too, this is just a more entertaining way to do it.

    I am stuck with no decorating budget for a few months as we rebuild an emergency fund after using all our savings to buy our new house.
