I also received an order to make a bunch of bibs. I started out making them and sent a photo to the mom I am making them for, when she asked me to make them narrower (her baby is tiny). Lesson learned. DO NOT cut and fill an order until you have the specifics from the customer. No big deal. You can buy one of the bibs that I have made. I listed 8 new bibs in the shop. I started out making rosaries and pouches and table runners, but have expanded to include baby bibs, carrier strap covers and journal covers.
I sew as much as I can during nap time and in the evenings I try to work on making rosaries or sewing snaps on pouches and bindings on quilts. Some days are more productive than others, but first and foremost I am a mom.
A little update on our homeschool: Owen is finally reading and finished the first Seton reader. It took a long time for him to grasp the basic phonics, but perseverance is his middle name. The other kiddos are plugging along in their studies and learning a lot. We just began adding extra math practice to our daily routine. The kids use Xtramath to practice their facts. It helps them solidify their knowledge of the basic math facts. Even Owen is getting quicker. Math is hard for him, too. We suspect that he could have dyslexia, but aren't getting him diagnosed. It wouldn't change anything by labeling him. We finally found out how he learns best and as long as we use the methods he needs, he is highly successful and will hopefully catch up to other kids his age in due time.
The weather has been cold and we have had snow, lots of snow! The kids really enjoy playing out in the snow. I can't believe that the baby, now 15 months even goes out to play in the snow. He loves the snow and looks so cute in his little snow suit.
I must get back to the family now, but before I go, I want to remind you to come back again tomorrow. A giveaway for one of my rosaries begins tomorrow and I don't want any of my readers to miss out on the chance to win.
Until then, God Bless and happy Feast of St. Andrew.
