I am a homeschooling mom.  Up until last September, my kids had never gone to school.  That’s when my daughter decided she wanted to try sixth grade.  I am not a fan of school generally.  I could go on and on about that and maybe I will one day but this isn’t that kind of blog.  
When she started school I ended up with this ocean of free time.  I have a son who was still home but he often slept in and is more of an introvert so really didn’t drag me around town the way she had when she was home all day.  That’s when I started making stuff.  Actually, for the first couple of months, I sat around wishing she was home.  BUT…I have never been very good at moping for any length of time, I just don’t have the attention span for it.  

I’ve been knitting for years and started sewing a bit before she started school but only here and there when time permitted.  Now, I had lots of time so I tried to put it to some use.  She came back home after six months; she said she liked school but it was not interesting enough to justify the early wake up.  I have had to juggle my time more but I’m still deep into making stuff and haven’t stopped.
