I have decided that I am tired of spending my days cleaning, running errands, and watching TV. So, I decided to get some hobbies. Sewing has always been something that I have wanted to do because it can be so beneficial with kids and things and it's also a lot of fun. My mom taught me how to sew when I was younger, but that was a really long time ago and I have forgotten almost everything. Regardless, last week I made up my mind that I would take up sewing as a hobby. Problem: I didn't have a sewing machine or any sewing supplies.
Solution: I went out and bought a sewing machine (with Dan's permission of course), a rotary cutter and board, and some thread.
Since then I have been working on 2 different baby blankets. One is a quilt (which is sooo much harder than my mom made it look) and the other is a baby rag quilt. Baby rag quilts are really cute and also pretty easy, so that's going pretty well. As soon as they're done, I'll post some pictures.
I've also decided to do more baking. I've always loved to cook and bake, but I hardly ever do it, so now is the time. Hobby number 2: baking. Yesterday I made banana bread and it was delicious. Today I am going to make Almond Peach bread, Orange cranberry brunch rolls, and no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies. Before you say, whoa slow down killer, most of these things will be for the relief society activity tonight that I am SUPER excited about. I seriously love our relief society and our activities are always so fun. So, wish me luck! I'm off to buy some baking supplies and some fabric. Hobbies here I come!
