I've spent so much time in the caravan over the past few weeks making, deciding, choosing and fixing that now I can't even see the bigger picture any more.
I really have no idea if the curtains I've made so far are a bit too much or if they work.
Before we had kids my farmer boy and I travelled up and down the East coast of Australia looking for land to buy. We drove a cute white combi and before we left I made some blue fluffy curtains with appliqued colourful flowers.
While I was making them they seemed like a great idea, but a few months down the track it was like blue fluff?? really??
This time I want to make curtains for the caravan that will go the distance, that I'll still like in the months to come. Curtains that wont hurt my eyes and make me wish I had brought my sewing machine along to make more.
So what does a sewing obsessed girl do when she needs space from her sewing? She sews something else of course. A dress!
Forget the deadline and the the fact that my house is messier than ever before, forget the fact that I have to sew so we can get outta here, ignore the fact that I found myself hiding the fact that I was sewing a dress when ever anyone walked in and sew one anyway.
Miss Pepper definitely does not need anther mama made dress at the moment but I had to sew one anyway. Some thrifted knit fabric, an already cut out pattern and I was off.
And would you believe, it did the trick.
I sewed the dress, we left the chaos of home and went to a birthday party and then when we got home I saw things for what they are and changed the project completely.
The new curtain plan is plainer and quicker and feels so much more doable. Yay!
It didn't hurt that Farmer Bren had cleaned and vacuumed and I could see the floor for the first time in ages too. #myhero
And this is the little beanie I knitted for the baby birthday boy. Raveled here.
He had the kids in hysterics taking pulling it off every time his mama put it on him.
So that's me. I've kind of calmed down now I have a new plan but I can't promise I'll definitely stick to it.
What should you be doing right now?
Have fun out there. x
