I love your Valentine Maryjanes! I have a newborn I would love to try to make them for. Would you consider sharing your pattern?

What a lucky baby to have such a talented mommy!

Those are adorable! It is when I see cute items such as E.'s shoes or a beautifully decorated nursery that I start thinking "hmmm, maybe I am ready to start having kids..." Then reality kicks in and I snap out of it. :)

My poor niece, she is the receiver of many of my so-called projects because I do not yet have children of my own. I hope you had fun dancing with E.

HI CRYSTAL; WHAT YOUR CHILDREN LEARN FROM SEEING THEIR MOM SEW, KNIT, CRAFT, OR COOK IS WHAT THEY LEARN TO DO. I ALWAYS SEWED, COUNTED CROSS-STITCH, GARDEN, ETC. LACEY AND HOLLY SEW AND DO HAND WORK ALOT PRETTIER THAN I EVER DID. DON'T WORRY "E" WILL BE JUST LIKE HER MOM.

I'M GLAD LACEY AND GEOFF WILL BE STATIONED WITH YOU AND J AGAIN.

SANDEE

Very cute shoes. Too bad I don't crochet. Where could I find time (and money) for another hobby?

I remember that feeling too, being so busy making something that I was "away" (still happens alone)....but what E also sees is that there is more in your life -- that you have your own needs and interests. At some point that becomes admiration for what you do, what you create, who you are. She knows you are there for her....always hers first.
And thank you for the link. That was so sweet.

Cute shoes. There arn't enough hours in a day for us to get everything we want done. It happens to everybody, including me, and I live in a tiny little room, and don't have kids.
