I've been a little frustrated this week since getting home from vacation because I feel like I'm stuck in first gear. I came home excited to hit my sewing machine with some new ideas percolating, but had to tackle unpacking and laundry and fridge restocking first. Then my toddler went on a sleep strike - so by default, I'm on a sleep strike, too >: ( And then my car decided to give me trouble, which means I just lost this morning to the repair shop. (As a military spouse, it's a given that your car only dies when your soldier is away, so I guess I can't even feign surprise about this latest development and I probably should have seen it coming!)
I did order a bunch of new supplies, though, and while I wait for those to arrive, I signed up for two BOM classes on Craftsy. So while I can't quite yet dive into the projects I want to tackle, and my time has been fractured and sleep-deprived, at least I'm starting some blocks that will be great skill builders!
Since I haven't made anything exciting since getting home, here are my daughters' new travel pillow cases that I commandeered my mom's machine to make when we were visiting last week. They've always had soft flannel cases, but in last week's insane heat and staying somewhere with no air conditioning, I felt sorry for the poor kids and whipped these out. Double bonus: they didn't pick girly princess prints, so I got a nice little break from so much pink!
