Small Successes (9)

We started work on our very first St. Joseph's altar. This is not a tradition that we are familiar with but we are doing it in our own small way, with the help of some sweet friends. It should be completed later today.

I have completed sewing three Quilties, two angel dolls, one set of cushions for a rocking chair that never had any, one pillow head rest for the same rocking chair, one set of curtains for two very odd shaped windows in our schoolroom to help keep the hot summer sun from blinding us in the afternoon and two fun headbands for my beautiful girls based on this tutorial that MommaLlama shared with me. And just yesterday, my daughters asked if I was going to sew their Easter dresses this year. Wimper, wimper, sigh.

I stayed on track with my exercise even though a week of sewing projects and other projects threatened to derail it.

Check out everyone else's successes, big and small, here.


  1. The headbands are adorable! I feel your pain on sewing those Easter dresses. My two little sweeties found a drawer full of patterns I've been meaning to use. I just don't think I'll have the time to do anything that's Easter worthy!

    Kudos on maintaining your exercise regimen!

  2. Woohoo! You're cookin! Do we get to see some pics?
