Getting back into a routine isn't easy!

Since moving, I have found it hard getting into my normal routine. With stuff still everywhere, and so many jobs still to do, I have found myself walking around in circles half the time!
Before we moved, I used to drop the boys at school in the morning, come home, blog, do housework then sew. These days, I don't know if I'm Arthur or Martha!
My Mum said to me, recently, that I must get back into some routine or my time will not be productive. She's right, of course - but this comes from a lady who does not sit down!
This is generally the busiest time of year for me, and most other crafty types, so I must try!
I have been sewing madly over the last few days to update the website with some new items - it's looking a bit dismal at the moment!
Here are just a few things I have been working on......
Some baby cushions. I just love these vintage fabric blocks.
More buntings. Ah, roses!
And I made a huge stack of these lavender strawberries last week.
Most of these are going to a lady in the UK but some will be left over for purchase in the shop and etsy.

So, new routine for me starting today!
See you tomorrow and not next Monday!

those vintage fabric blocks are so sweet - when my twin brothers were babies, my mum had similar pictures on their walls - I think the artist was Bessie Pease??Good luck getting back into a routine; that's my challenge later this week; back to work after a week in hospital with pneumonia and nearly 4 weeks at home recovering; no more nana naps for me!
Keep smiling, and loving your new home, Kathryn; it looks lovely.

Good to have you back shabby - it's hard when you move so don't be too hard on yourself. Hope to see you Wednesday night.

I love the baby pillows! :-) So sweet. How much will they cost? My friend has a vintage theme in her nursery and a pillow like the ones you made would be a perfect gift for her. :-)
