. . . multi-tasking . . .

. . . from the looks of my posts . . .
. . . you might think that
vicarious back surgery
& burp cloths are my life . . .
. . . you might be partly right . . .
. . . especially lately . . . . . . the thing is . . .

. . . sewing, for me, is therapy . . .

. . . it is a stress reliever . . .

. . . & it has less calories

than potato chips . . .

. . . besides . . .

. . . say, for instance,

network coverage of the

olympics that night consists of

the women's marathon . . .. . . the . . .
. . . entire . . .
. . . race . . .
{when really, all i care about are the highlights
- you know -
one runner elbowing/shoving another to get to the water station,
a runner nearly tripping on someone's discarded water bottle,
muscle cramps, stuff like that}

. . . it's good to have a little project

to keep you busy . . .

- you know -

. . . multitasking . . .

. . . just wondering if anyone noticed

the giant step i took

out of my comfort zone? . . .

. . . orange? . . .
. . . are you kidding me? . . .
. . . seriously, though,
there is more to my life
than my husband's back problems
& sewing silly burp cloths . . .
. . . i'm also really good at
waiting for my missionary son's emails
every monday . . .
. . . i'm deep . . .

I'd take orange over skulls/pirate whatever that was.......

And yes, have his burb cloths out.....there are two on my front seat in the Acadia now so they're being used!!!

These are sooooo cute. I think sewing is the cheapest, most relaxing therapy there is. I hope your husband continues to improve. I too wait for those wonderful e-mails. My day of anticipation is Thursday.

After spending the night sewing a pile of [quite ugly] book bags for RS Enrichment tomorrow night, I think I NEED therapy. Ugh. Love your stuff, though!

oh, janet . . . i hear you re: the bookbags. we (and as amanda says) and when i say "we" i mean "i" sewed 200 of those and filled them with school supplies two years ago for drew's/my eagle project. and, yes, they were all quite attractive. advil helps - and diet coke!

Dear Mom,

I would be happy to provide you with some more "therapy." Be prepared to sew-away at some crib bedding, since cute baby boy bedding apparently does not exist.

You are welcome.

Love,
Your favorite (and most demanding) daughter!
