I have only had snatches of time here and there to sew over the last few weeks, and have enjoyed sewing some small projects just for fun. A zippy pouch that was sent across the pond, another one for our favorite babysitter filled with important treats such as lollipops and pez dispensers, and this improv blankie that was delivered last night. Sometimes, minutes are all that I have for myself between work and life and living (and freezing, as much of the United States and elsewhere have been doing lately). I miss the large chunks of time to myself, but I’m trying to savor all of the little minutes right now–cooking dinner and puzzles with the little one, listening to my son read his first chapter book. Life can be very sweet when you slow down, even just a bit.
