I'm extremely fortunate to be married to a man who is happy for me to be a house wife, which allows me to pursue my love of fabric and creating. Because he works a 14 plus hour day, time together is extremely limited, so I like to make sure I spend time with him in the evenings before he has to go to bed.
Like so many others I can't just sit and do nothing, my hands need to be busy. Lately the time has been spent turning burp cloths in the right way and pinning them ready for pressing and top stitching. Now that, that is finished I needed something else to occupy my hands. Something that wasn't too brain demanding (at that time of night my brain is rather fried from the day spent in the sewing room).
So this is what I've been doing this past week or so. I can usually get at least one completely embroidered, and sometimes make a start on another.
Hopefully by the time the craft fair come around I should have a good supply of these little bibs.
What do you do to keep your hands busy in the evenings?
