In My Spare Time

In my spare time (what? spare time? what's that again?) I love to sew. I haven't always loved to sew, it's a fairly new hobby, but one I really enjoy. I don't get to sew very often. If I get the machine out in the middle of the day everything else gets neglected. Kids. House. Husband. Exercise. Calling. Life. It's kind of like reading. If I start a new book, nothing gets done until that book is read. That's usually why I'll stay up all night to start and finish a book, when no one is awake. It's hard to neglect sleepers. The same thing applies to sewing, which is why the only time I usually get any sewing done is with The Secret Stitch Club once a week after the kiddos are down (or at least confined to their rooms). This week was an exception. Kevin came home early from school one day and told me to sew while he cleaned the upstairs bedroom. I didn't have to think about it...I jumped on it! Usually I love sewing aprons or bags, but my new obsessions are these cute cloth baby shoes. I love them!
Gavin's plaid and polka dot shoes
Coordinating elephant onesie
Tie onesies
Girlie shoes (they have matching heart onesies)

These were my very first pair that I tried. What I love about sewing is what you learn each time you sew. Each time you get a little better (hopefully!).
