when I was in graduate school I lived in a house off campus with three other people (most likely they won't be reading this) a few of them were so messy and at the end of the day I would be cleaning up after them, because I couldn't function in those spaces and evidently it caused animosity, needless to say I spent most of my waking hours at the studio (which didn't work out to be such a bad thing) - well living with two small kids that don't do the best job cleaning up gives me flashbacks to the messy roommate days. it slowly gets better as I try to establish routines, like doing a clean up before dinner and getting them to start bussing their own plates. I think when people meet me, they say how do you do it? it's not easy spending your time working on your business and doing house work and raising a family - I have the upmost respect for single parent houses, I couldn't do it all without leaning on john, but through the years I also learned to be less uptight and it's okay if it looks like a hurricane went through the house and the piles of laundry don't get folded, sometimes it's okay to leave the housework for a day or so, there's no harm.
I couldn't resist making a bag for myself using the vees pattern all the colours and tones works so nicely together, maybe I'll make a few for the shop? - wow the weather here has been fantastic! so balmy.
