Peonies and baubles in pink cake stand with vintage sheet as tablecloth
What?! Christmas is the day after tomorrow?!! Life has been a blur of work, domestics, supporting my husband in his business, final chats with the kids teachers, decoration my church’s Christmas Party (for 200 guests) coordinating two gifts, flowers and cards for two teachers, and trying to get to the gym and sew, before we go to New Zealand in Saturday.

I know everyone’s busy but I really seem to have overdone it this year but it’s been blogging that has suffered the most.

It’s hard to devote lots of time to something that doesn’t make any money especially when Instagram is so immediate and gratifying. So I am not apologizing for my slackness, but my life seems busier than when I started this blog and my lack of sewing has become frustrates me. This blog should be called Silent Vintage Sewing, or more aptly, Copious Amounts of Opshopping, as that is the direction things are going!

The needs of my kids keep growing and I need to focus on my youngest one in particular next year. He’s had a rough time at school and I want next year to be great for him.

Anyway – I will not make any promises I am unlikely to keep!

I hope you swing by once in a while to see what I bought, rather than what I have made!
