On my own

I'm tired and it's late but I just wanted to celebrate my first day as an (almost) full-time crafter with a few lines. Little e spent his first day without mum at daycare and everything went fine, he seems to enjoy the company. And the food. And I spent the whole day sewing like it was the last day of my life. I still have a hard time believing that this is for real and that I will be able to do it all over tomorrow again. It might take a few days before i can KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON like on Kirsten's new poster. But who knows if I will have to get a real job someday soon and this will just be a beautiful dream... So carpe diem! I say. Go to bed! You say. But I have to tell you about the vintage book my MiL found at the fleamarket. Lillemor gets a quilt for her birthday and every patch in it has a story to tell, so every night she gets to hear a different story. Wonderful inside and out. Good night!

Sounds like a fantastic way to spend the day. I can't wait to see some of your creations.

The book looks wonderful.

the prospect of a "proper job" should be the incentive to make the craft work! With your talent it should be no problem

Good luck, I don't think you will need it though, your work make me smile. Happy stitching. I love the sound of that book by the way! x

This book looks wonderful. I'm going to have to check out the local library if they have it in Norwegian.

Good luck with your re-opened shop and new adventure! I am sure that this will as proper as any other job.
