This has been a good week for learning new things! I can now operate a serger, which by the way, is a little scary with the knife cutting the fabric just inches from my finger. So far, no injuries, only nice, clean seams. I must get one of these someday!
Also, I figured out how to produce a full-sized pattern on the computer. After my last set of patterns, I was unsure whether or not to comtinue, because the options were so minimal, but now I can go ahead with my small business. Hopefully next week I can give a preview of things to come.
This week I came across a simple post by Hannah about Trying Vs. Training, and it got me thinking about an issue I have working on with my boys. They argue. A lot. I am sad to say that this comes from the overall know-it-all attitude that permeates our family, so I know it is something that we all need to be working on. I have been telling them for weeks to "work it out" instead of just sitting there repeating why they think they are right, but I realized after reading Hannah's post that I have neglected to give them the tools to make the change. I am hoping that some of the things we have been talking about this week will begin to make some changes in their hearts and we will be able to get through an hour without contention. I think it can happen...
The mailbox yielded a sweet treat the other day: a kitty bag from Hurrayic. How cute is this:
Aubry has pretty much claimed it as her own by adding her small collection of coins and a Lipsmacker to it. And if you still have snow in your area, you might consider this fun craft (on her blog) for the kids before it all melts and gives way to sunshine.
Just for fun, I leave you with a blast from my past:
Have a lovely weekend!
