Well we bought a Lay-z-boy chair about a month ago, and it was delivered about a week ago. It is fantastic! We have been talking about doing this for as long as we have been married, and we finally bought one when it was on sale over Labor Day weekend. It is so comfortable. Tonight, I plan to spend a little time sitting in it doing one of my new favorite things to relax: embroider. Remember the tea towels I made for my friend’s wedding shower? I am going to make some more. I have a birthday coming up for another friend, and I think I will be listing a set in my Etsy shop. I also just found out that my younger sister likes to embroider (so now I know what she won’t be getting for her birthday at the end of the month!). Here’s a picture of something she is working on (sorry it’s a little blurry, I stole it from her.)
Isn’t she talented???
Another relaxing thing I get to do this weekend is sew up some gifts for a baby shower I am going to on Saturday. I bought some really cute apple fabric a while ago, and I will be using that to make some burp cloths and applique onsies…wish me luck!
I used to not be this way, but if I go even a day or two without having my hands on some kind of fabric, I start to go a little wacky. But if I can have even 30 minutes to sit down with a needle and thread or my magnet glass and paper squares, I am so much more relaxed. I just need that little bit of time to do something I am good at and something that is productive and doesn’t have to do with cleaning the house! So, I am looking forward to getting home tonight and ripping into that clean pile of fabric and baby gear.
