What I do when I am not posting...

See those little faces?  Peeking from behind the sewing machine?
I will bet you couldn't even begin to guess WHY these little birds are staring at me...

This is my blue print. My to-do list.  Because you see I am super woman.
Well at least in my son's eyes.  He needs hats for his birds.  He has quite the collection.  Each of these birds is well loved and has traveled many miles.  Back and forth to grandma's the grocery store, school.  You name it, they've probably come along with us.  

So each of these little birds NEEDS a winter hats, for the upcoming holiday festivities   So far I have gotten off easy.  He has dressed them for Halloween and Thanksgiving with construction paper.  I am kicking myself for not getting pictures, but, here is a couple of the thanksgiving outfits.

Kind of cute, right?  Well everyone in the family is an artist, but that is another story for another post... If I haven't lost you yet there's more...

Anyhow, another important thing you should know, is that I don;t sew.  The sewing machine? A gift from my grandmother.  We've had it for about 2 years.  I learned how to thread it last year... I can do the bobbin thingy too.  It's no longer quite as big an ordeal as it was in the beginning...  Anyhow, we have a felt bucket.  Every color of felt you can imagine.  Today, we started making hats for the little birds. Sigh.

Considering I have no clue what I am doing and I don't sew.  Not too shabby, huh?
Well, now you know what I do with all the time I haven't been making crafts and posts.  Well that and working.  maybe some cooking. or cleaning. or thinking about crafts. but not actually doing them.

Have a fabulous day!  Soon I will tell you about today's kitchen adventure too.
Biscotti, baguettes, gingerbread.  Delicious day.
