Look what came yesterday!!!
pile o' leather
My awesome blog buddy Ohelene from Ohelene sewing sent me this amazing mountain of leather to start making some leather slippers for the kids. she even included elastic so I’m ready to make my first shoes. I was knocked off my socks by this. She is fabulous for doing it and I’m a bit choked up, I have to admit. Do you see those sweet Baby Born leather slippers she made as well? Please go visit her blog and see some of the fun stuff she’s been sewing up lately, I know you’ll love it. She even sells her shoes so go check them out. Thank you, Ohelene from Norway!!

As for me I’ve been jogging every other morning at 6:00 and my legs are loving me for it. I feel great again and I was quite surprised to find that it hasn’t cut into my knitting or sewing time either. I thought I would be tired to do anything after putting the kids to bed, but I feel I have more energy now. I may blog a bit less but I’ve also been trying to get a lot done lately and haven’t had too much to blog about. I did spend Thursday night at the hospital because Alida and Alexander fell out of the stroller causing Alida to land on her chin which got scraped up pretty well. She also bit the inside of her lip which bled all down her shirt. Her chin puffed up and I was worried that she might have done more damage, but fortunately she was fine and she was laughing about it later. What a scare, I’m telling you being a mom really makes you hysterical.
My Halloween sewing has been put on hold the last two day because I finally decided to sell the millions of baby clothes that have taken up all the room in my drawers and on the shelves. This morning I went to a baby bazaar which is just a huge yard sale here and I managed to sell quite a considerable amount of stuff. Thanks soooo much to Christina who helped me out and made it a lot of fun. I do have to admit, it was sure a lot of work getting everything together, washing and sorting things, but it was worth it in the end and I’m going to sign up for next month and see if we can sell more. I’m trying to put all the money we make towards shelving for the kids’ room to organize the immense amount of toys we own. We’re getting pretty close to our goal.
I’m off to sew some more of our costumes and maybe get this other sock finished. I really want to sew a pair of leather shoes but they are going to have to wait until the rest of my sewing is done. One more week until Halloween and our party which I have to start planning.
