A quick sewing project!

I have had a major case of cabin fever. Knitting is just not happening as much as my brain wants it to, because it's just too hot and humid here, it gives me sticky fingers and sticky yarn. No fun. So the knitting has been put aside for the last few weeks. Yesterday I was desperate for a creative outlet. Desperate I tell you! I CAN'T just sit, I feel like I'm wasting my life away. It's more relaxing for me to have a little project to play at, then I feel productive, and just happier in general. Yesterday I was going a little nutty, so my very dear husband told me to get in the car, and in minutes we were headed to Target. I slapped on some mascara in the car and I was ready. He wheeled me around Target in a wheel chair and I bought knee socks for $2.50. *Joy* And then the knee socks turned into leg warmers/ baby legs! (If you want to know how to do this g00g1e images will be your best friend. There are about 4000 tutorials on different ways to accomplish this. Serger, no serger, cuff, no cuff, ruffle bottoms, no ruffle, hand sewing, recycled t get the idea! There is an answer for everyone! It's awesome!) It literally was less that 5 minutes sitting at my serger and I had a pair. Woot woot! My body can handle a 5 minute sewing project! It was like a ninja project that I just snuck in before my body even knew what happened or had a chance to pitch a fit!  Then I was no longer nutty! Ahhhhhh.... I have more, but I'll have to show you later because as soon as I snapped this picture with my phone it started raining cats and dogs.
 I'm planning a post to explain the wool dryer balls this week for those of you who wanted to know more. They are pretty stinkin' awesome! See ya this week! xo, Sam

What a cute idea! You are so creative. I imagine it must be hard to stay in bed. If only your sewing machine could be mounted on a hospital like table that tilts at an angle where you can sew laying down, wow you would be back at it! Haha! Tell that baby to hang in there! And you too.

So sweet! I find the need to do something productive is as much for keeping my mind active as well as for keeping my hands busy. Doing nothing at all is so hard!! :)
