Kids Clothes Week Challenge Fail

Fever. Vomit.

Did I get your attention? This has been my week.

When I came across elsie marley's Kids Clothes Week Challenge I knew that was something I wanted to do.  I had planned to get started earlier in the week and do the bulk of my sewing on the weekend but I should learn not to plan anything.

Dashiell was sick on Sunday, my usual day to sneak to my sewing area and start a project or two during naptime, but he needed his mommy. He had a high fever and was vomiting.

Monday, my day off to be home from work with the kids and the day I get everything done, was a disaster. Dashiell was still recovering and once I got him down for his nap, Annabelle began screaming and bouncing on her bed and kicking the wall. It was not a good naptime.  She was not herself.

No sewing done on Monday.

I don't usually do much sewing during the week but I had thought I would do some fabric cutting or work on some freezer paper designs. However, on Tuesday daycare called me and said Annabelle had a fever. I rushed to get her and the poor thing was miserable. Needless to say I didn't do much the rest of the week.

I did manage to sneak in some time at my sewing machine yesterday. Annabelle and Dashiell both took long naps and my husband came home from work early.

I had cut the pattern pieces for an Oliver and S Popover Dress but never felt confident to do it. Another blogger has a wonderful sew along that helped.  But I still wasn't getting it.

Then it clicked and I finally started it.

I didn't get very far until Annabelle woke up and needed some hugs and kisses.  She is feeling much better today. And yes that's my seam ripper.  I'm still getting used to my new sewing machine and the zigzag stitch.  I love it though and can't wait to finish this project for my sweet Annabelle!
