My Kid Free Day

Yesterday I took both kids to the sitters so I could enjoy my first alone day in three years.

Oh my.

It was so wonderful!

I spent almost the entire day hiding in my sewing lair. For the first time ever I was able to start and finish not just one, but two projects! I also took the time to teach myself how to use the walking foot for my sewing machine and to make some new patterns for ideas I have. Matt met me for a peaceful lunch at the restaurant and then it was right back to the lair to make a little bag. Then I made a delicious roasted chicken supper without kids underfoot.

A kid free day was exactly what I needed. I will definitely try to give myself a kid free day now once a month. But now in order to pay for it, I need to sell more of my handicrafts! I think I will be starting an Etsy account this fall to make it easier. Right now I have these lovely black leather and seal mittens for sale! They have rabbit trim and pile lining. They are a small fit, fitting a hand length of 6.5 inches (finger tip to bottom of palm. Leave a comment or email me if you are interested in this pair or would like something custom made to your size.
