It has to, the amount of time we've spent apart.
We're a one computer family for the time being, and my husband had to use it most of the day for a school assignment so my pattern writing efforts were stalled.
It was no biggie when he had nothing to do online but look at espn, but now I'm going to have to schedule time instead of just working on whatever, whenever.
So instead of pattern writing this evening, I worked on honing my newbie sewing skills and made a skirt for my little girl & a cape for my little boy. The skirt- easy peasy. The cape- well, let's just say that I'm glad I had such a victory with the skirt first :) The good thing is, my little boy won't care at all if my stitching is a bit wonky- he'll be too busy running around in it.
Tomorrow I'm going to try to work on the pattern in the morning, since my aunt is coming for a visit in the afternoon & I haven't seen her since August. Tomorrow night my husband has one of his classes, so more computer time for me. Score!
