My big kids start school tomorrow. It’s always a little bittersweet. I love the freedom of summer, I like having my kids around and not having to make plans around the school schedule. But the routine of the school year is also nice, and I tend to be more productive when I’m functioning in a routine. This week I didn’t sew a single stitch.
I did warp my new loom though…
(It’s from Wood Creek Looms)
And I went on a long walk with two awesome kiddos.
And I hung out with my oldest son, savoring the time I have with him before school starts. He’s kind of awesome. I don’t have a pic of the time we spent together but it would have included sweat pants and a messy bun, and a super cool 11 year old.
And I took a deep breath in. I was feeling overwhelmed by everything I wanted to accomplish. So I stepped away, to plan my upcoming projects (spoiler: lots of knits for fall, and a little linen too…). Now I feel refreshed and ready to make some beautiful new things!
Thanks for tuning in to my rambles…
