And true to my word, start small I did. The downside of all this is I can only share so much because I don’t want to blow people’s gifts. And some of the people on my list read my blog. So there will be lots of teaser pics. BUT I did ban my husband from reading, so I can share more about his gifts.
While I was enjoying a rare lunch break at work, I took advantage of the time and made plans for all the other supplies I need for gifts. I also plotted out the next week weeks of sewing, cooking and painting so I can finish on time. Since I had the materials for my husband’s gift and he’s not allowed on here, I will share a taste of what is in the works. My official start small project this week is two-fold. One, start a few squares of my husband’s afghan. Second, test out some interfacing for another gift.
I am decently proud of my progress. Mostly because I also did chores and had major storytime with my kid. I do love a feeling of accomplishment. Now I just need to keep that momentum going and remind myself how much I love giving my family something made especially for them. Check back later this week to see how things are going!
