Sometimes I need a sewing day

Closing the Etsy shop is always does free up significant amounts of time.  I am constantly debating whether it is worth it or not...I love Etsy and have had so much fun making and selling and connecting with people, but right now my kids are young and need me and I want to be available for them as much as possible.  That said, every once in a while I just need to take a little time to sit and look at pretty fabric, and cut it up in pieces, and sew it back together again.  It reminds me how satisfying it is to be able to make or do something that nobody can UNDO as soon as it's done.  I guess that's why I like mowing the lawn too.  Laundry? Dirty clothes in the basket again before the clean ones are even folded.  Dinner? Demolished in seconds.  Clean floor? Bag of Goldfish dumped and smashed immediately.  Bathrooms? 4 boys live here.  'Nuff said.  So today, I had a sewing day.

 Nothing terribly noteworthy but I got some potholders whipped up for my brother's Great Harvest.  

I just. love. fabric.

All the little tabs and bindings!!

And here they sit, in a pretty little stack.  Hopefully nobody gets into the scissors drawer.
