So the new baby and I did some bonding this weekend, the results of which are not suitable for showcasing at the moment (if ever!). It's true what they say, the second baby can be completely different from the first. Bernina was obedient but rather dull. Janome is full of clever tricks but seems to want to put herself in charge. We're finding our way. Ha--I need to stop referring to the new sewing machine as "the baby". This is how rumors get started. I have real life friends and relatives who read this blog.
While I did spend much of the weekend holed up in my studio, Ivo (with sniffles) snuggled in a nest of pillows by my side, we managed to complete Mom Unplugged's first Unplugged Project. Ivo really enjoyed painting with leafy twigs and making dots with the end of a stick ("footprints" he called them). We also used acorns and pinecones and one rock. Josh even joined us for the project, making it a family art afternoon. Thanks Mom Unplugged!
Tomorrow I have to finish up a custom order for my shop and then work on some new goodies. And I promised Ivo we'd go to the deli for lunch and then hit the thrift store to pick out a new toy. He is hoping to find this $69 wooden camper. I told him, "Well we'll certainly take a look for it. You never know." Um, I hope he forgets about it before morning. Why did I even let him see it? I am hoping to find a couple of lamps and a work table. Thrift stores, craft marathons, a willing accomplice, and a deli sandwich. It's going to be a good day :)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
