First of all, I have to make an exclamation: I Can Sew! No one is more surprised by this than me. Motherhood has brought all sorts of new aspects to my life, not the least of which is a desire to make stuff.
I used to call this space the sun room. Now I call it the sewing room.
And without further adieu, behold my first sewing accomplishment!
See that pocket holding Ethan's body worn controllers? I MADE IT!
Can you believe how well that fabric matches his jammies? That was not planned folks. That's just how I roll around here. Heather Homemaker. Heather Hobby.
As for the widget explanation, my friend and fellow blogger La La told me that if I'm going to have a list of books that link to amazon, then I may as well sign up for the associates program and make a little money from the sale of those items. If someone clicks on one of my book titles and then purchases it from amazon, I'll get a small percentage of that sale. I set up an account that will turn the rewards into gift certificates that I can use to buy more books. That way I can quit taking Ethan to all these dumb doctors and just treat him myself based on what I'm reading! (ahem, not really)
I'm off to read another chapter in Sewing for Dummies. Maybe I should add that to my amazon bookshelf.
