pulling back


March is a pivotal month I think. Not quite winter, yet not quite spring yet either. Our lives over here have been full of drama, carpools, ballet lessons, and church. Not to mention a few other things. Its easy to get a bit overwhelmed. Trying to do everything just right. Sometimes there just isn't enough of me to go around. And there goes my March pity party. I finally got the kiddos to bed tonight and I realized something. They were able to drop their baggage from the day, kiss me goodnight, and ease off into dreamy bliss. So perfect and peaceful. I wandered downstairs and sat at my machine with three different projects that needed to be tweaked or finished or fixed. I pushed them all aside and started something new. Headbands. Why headbands you ask? To pull this fog away from my eyes and help me to see what is really important. Its not the deadlines and time lines. Its the kisses from a small boy and the nuzzles from a big girl who still wants to be my baby. Its the smile on the face of a redhead and the wink from my husband across the room. Sorry if the pictures are dark (as often they are when sewing a 10pm), I hope the result helps me to remember where my focus really is.

I love the train of thought that got you creating these. We all need headbands. A simple reminder of what is important!

Enjoy the kids for all you're worth. My oldest is 18 and heading off to college this fall. I miss the little things with him.

Luckily my daughter is six years behind.
