I have been one crafty chick of late. I stopped procrastinating and finished the second cushion cover that made to coordinate with the new bedroom makeover.
They’re not perfect – a bit measured by eye, but I’m tres impressed with my efforts. Along with a little bit of sewing, I’ve been doing a little bit of painting.
I painted this Ikea step in green enamel and rubbed back for a bit of a rustic look. I left the final coat a bit long so the paint cured a little more than I intended before I got to rub it back. However, it was really just a test piece before I attack the old pine dresser in the kitchen in the same manner.
I’m on a mission to keep my hands busy. Breastfeeding and my metabolism are no longer working together to keep me sub 60kg. So, a-snacking I may no longer go. I wouldn’t mind so much if it were an all-over, proportional weight gain, but it’s filling out the mummy tummy where Lincoln once was!
Along with busy hands and no snacking is a new ab-busting regime of 50 situps every time Lincoln goes to bed. So that’s 3 sets on a normal day. I don’t know if it’ll do anything but it’s worth a try.
My next busy hands mission is making PJ pants and matching t-shirts with old flanelette wraps.
