Sew Grateful

by Nicole

It’s on days like this when I did mental gymnastics at work, changed one explosive diaper after another, had to switch out the car seat because of explosive diaper #2, had my three-year old throw one tantrum after another at home, preschool and the supermarket, and a bunch of other minor annoyances that I won’t bore you with that I am so grateful for those moments I can steal away with my machine and sew in bliss.

Before I run off to sew, I’ll leave you with a couple of photos of a pouch I sewed up this weekend to hold my new eyeglasses case.

They gave me a case in pink and orange. How did they know that is one of my favorite color combos?!? I had the perfect fabric to match in my stash. I used a pouch that my husband has for his case as a model to make my own. It fits perfectly.

It’s on days like this that I smile when I look at the little things, like this pouch, that I’ve sewed.

Now, I’m off to spend some quality time with my machine.

I hope your day wasn’t as exciting as mine!

Great job! I'm on my 3rd failed attempt to make a pouch for my phone, I think I'm tired and need to go to bed!

I agree, sewing de'stresses me too, it is a need!

I had one of those days too (including getting lost at Duke, traffic backup). I hope tomorrow is better but wait I have dental surgery, what about Thursday – no cortisone shot in knee. Still I remember those days of multiple tantrums and messy diapers and I think you certainly deserve some sewing time.

those days are so hard. i have trouble even now with little things and i wish i was more patient. the machine and the sewing can really help soothe.

I hope you got the time you needed! I don't know how you Mama's with babies do it! I didn't start sewing until my youngest was three and even that was a challenge!

What a beautiful pouch! Listening to your day reminds me how much I enjoy being a grandmother but I remember days like that 🙂

haha – my day was downright dull compared to yours! But I have those days too – a little time in the sewing room smooths out the ruffles! Darling little bag – perfect fabric for your case!
