Tonight however, I have been convinced that I am not a creative idiot. The kitty is cute, I'm sure I can fix the shirt and nightgown, the girls love the skirts (even though the one for Lily is really doll sized and so is now doll clothes) and I'm sure of all that because I just cooked the yummiest meal ever!!!! I can't believe how well it turned out. I made a roast. I'm sick of pot roast with onions, carrots and potatoes so I decided I'd slow cook it. I used half a can of golden cream of mushroom soup, browned the meat first in a pan with a pad of butter and used water to get the drippings up and put all that in the slow cooker. It cooked for four hours and in that time I made a fresh loaf of french bread, baked a strawberry crumble for dessert, did science with the girls and then made mashed potatoes and served it up with some corn. Everyone gobbled everything up with gusto! I love that! It was so easy and so yummy! Feeling more motivated here are some of the things I've made.

An Ego Bust...Boost
As some of you may know the last couple of weeks have been busy for me. In one day I sewed four matching skirts for all the girls, then later I made a pair of bloomers for Sarah to wear under her skirts and dresses, I finished the skirt I started when I was pregnant, I sewed a cat pillow and embroidered the nose, whiskers and eye lashes, I started sewing a shirt for myself and then made a pair of pajamas for myself also. You may notice that I have not posted any of this stuff and that I've been quite absent from the crafty blog. Well, partly it's because I'm a homeschooling mother of four little girls and I'm busy darn it. And it's partly because I'm completely disappointed in the shirt and pajamas. They are a big fat failure; they don't fit, look ugly and in general have made me want to sell my sewing machine. So there.
