My husband is a very good man- I am sure I don’t tell him often enough. As he was leaving for work tonight, he asked me what my plans for the rest of my evening were. I indicated the sink full of dishes and mentioned the laundry. He told me he would rather know I got out my sewing machine and did something fun and creative than worry about that stuff. See? A good man.
So I decided on a compromise. I did half of the dishes, and will spend time doing some sewing preparation. Since I don’t know how to use my new machine yet, I found a very simple project to do next, and I am going to do the ironing, measuring, and cutting tonight. Tomorrow I will need to run out for one more supply, and then I can sew it up. I figure this is a good balance between tackling chores and pursuing creative endeavors.
Hopefully, I will have a finished project to share tomorrow!
