Little Joys

I have been quite busy lately. Busy with things other than sewing - things like playing piano and planning music lessons and making food and even being sick. But yesterday, I finally got myself to finish a little project I had been working on for a while. I came up with the idea to make baby headbands that doubled as ear-warmers. Fleece was the material of choice, since it is soft, warm, and naturally a bit stretchy. I made four different kinds:

The flowers were the hard part. I had to figure out what kind of flower worked best with each headband. Sometimes it took a few tries. Now I just wish I had a baby girl around to try them out on!

That is all the sewing news I have for you. I have been enjoying my busy life, even though sometimes it means little time for sewing. I have certainly been enjoying the weather! Maybe I can actually get out in it tomorrow! We've had some beautiful skies lately.

I have also been enjoying food a lot. I am trying to get rid of some food allergies with the Autoimmune Paleo diet. Being on a restrictive diet causes me to get really creative. Recently, I have been discovering the wonders of this little super food:

Seriously, it is amazing what you can do with avocados! My current favorite thing to use them in is sauces. You can get a thick, creamy "white sauce" without using flour! I don't really care for a lot of Paleo substitutes, but this is something I will definitely continue to do even after I am done with the diet.

Sewing orders are piling up, so I will probably have a lot more to blog about over the next few months. In the mean time, I will continue to enjoy my busy life. Life is too short to rush through without noticing the blessings!
