Finding Things

Amidst this crazy crazy week of mine I am finding some hidden blessings.  Actually, I am seeking out those hidden blessings because I may loose it if I don’t.  Did I mention that we are going to Las Vegas on Thursday?  Oh and that we are moving?  Ya, I’m sure I did. I’ve found this blog space to be one of those blessings right now.  Its funny how sometimes it can feel like a “to-do” that I can’t quite handle fitting in sometimes, and then others, like now, it feels like a to-do that I just really look forward to, like a place to pause and have a little fun.  So thank you blog space, I really need you right now.

As I was packing today I came across this pair of pants I made for Cora last year.  As a new mother and a new sewer I thought “well I’ll just make these 2 sizes too big and roll em up or pin them or something until she’s grown into them”  Obviously that was silly.  So I put them away and completely forgot about them until today!!!  And now they are the perfect size!! In retrospect, I would probly never again make white pants for an 18 month old.  There really is no need to chastise myself over that decision, but do you see how I try anyway?  Jeez.  The fabric is Heather Ross, and the pattern is one I found at my local fabric store, Fabric of Vision

Another find of the day is this list entitled 100 Things I Love.  I think I wrote it a little over a year or so ago.  Its a timely find- to remember that there are 100 things that I love, instead of 100 things that I …um don’t love.

Now what compelled me to write this list?  Who knows, but it was a ton of fun to find.  I especially got a kick out of #27. Having hope for a new era.  Whatever that means that I will try to remember that I do now still amidst the craziness have hope for a new era:)

Speaking of…want a sneak preview of our new era?

Thought so.

This is our garden and the view outside of our new home.

    Isn’t it fun to find things from another time? Even something simple from the recent past can show us how quickly we are changing.

    The pants are gorgeous 🙂 I love your list of things you love!! . . .I think I’ll make one too to look at at times when feel like the world isn’t somewhere I enjoy being. Your upcoming move is very exciting! I’ll enjoy reading about your experiences and seeing the photos.
