Measure Twice Cut Once

I feel like this quote applies to more things in life than just sewing. Something I will think about..

Well I’ve worked on a couple of projects this past week. One was a cozy blanket cloak that was a custom order and I finished a little embroidery project I had been playing around  with.
Accomplishing projects is always a great feeling. Working on/designing orders and being an RN, it’s nice to finish a project for yourself since I am left with little to no time to do so.

I am often asked “how do you have time to do this?”… I often wonder that myself, really. It isn’t easy but, that is life. You make it happen. I am very dedicated and use my time as wisely as I can. I will say nursing has had some influence on shaping my time management skills. I’ve always been a creative person. It’s in my nature and really grew up with it. I think it’s really important to have something you enjoy doing that you can pick up and put down whenever you want to. Good way to have your own personal mini vacation I like to think of it 🙂

Also, another thing I’d like to mention is that my cozy blanket cloak was on Fresh Squeezed Fabrics blog which I thought was pretty cool! 🙂

This cozy blanket cloak came in pretty handy because this past week we have had some very cold negative temperatures. (-20) Brrr!! I guess that’s the crazy New England weather for ya! Although, with the bit of rain we had it melted away some of the snow and for a moment there seeing all the grass again it gave me hopes for spring. But I’ll keep dreaming.. One of the lovely things about having my etsy shop is I can make a little spring cheer with my fabric.
Heart2HomeCreations is having it’s own bit of early spring cleaning currently. I am still taking custom orders via message but the shop needs a little renovating. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I need to get things prepared because something big for me is happening this spring. I will share more with you about once I get more information!
Tomorrow I am going to a “Food Fight” no not the kind where you throw food… That sounds fun too though lol but a cook off show down. My cousin Nick has a big part in this event he is a chef at Lincoln Tavern and Restraunt in Boston. Ticket proceeds are helping with the fight against childhood hunger! Lucky & I are really looking forward to this event. I will update later on how to goes! 🙂

Here you can catch up on what Lincoln is all about!
