happy mommy, happy sewing

We spent our Sunday wandering through the forest. It was just where we needed to be.

(Can you believe the aspens are still bare?)

How happy these girls make me...

How grateful I am to be their mother. It is my favorite thing in the world!!!

Thanks to those who sent Mother's Day wishes. I hope you all had the most wonderful day!

So, is anyone else taking part in the Kids Clothes Week challenge? I wasn't sure if I should commit, but I'm glad I have. The goal is to spend one hour each day sewing clothing for our children every day for the next seven days. Today I cut out all the pieces to make a new top for Chloe, but the actual sewing will have to wait until tomorrow. I plan to make a similar one for Chessa too. There is much sewing that needs to be done here, I am happy for some extra inspiration!

Oh, that is an awesome goal! I love it. One hour seems like such a small commitment, but I know that 7 hours of sewing can result in a lot of clothing for the kiddos. Can't wait to see what you make Renee!! Im glad you got to enjoy your girls in the woods yesterday!

Your girls are so wonderful, how could they not make anyone happy?! <3
I am taking part in the sewing challenge, too. I forgot to post about it today. I needed this push to get me going on all those dresses and bloomers I want to make :)

This post made me feel happy: ) I love the sweet dresses your girls wear!
I have contemplated joining kids clothes week- I might do it on my own in my own way, because I am worried I wouldn't be able to keep up!

forest of my favorite past times! I need to get my sewing projects in a higher priority order.
