So it's day three of KCWC, but no sewing today. There is a sleep deficit that is taking priority over sewing tonight. But I'm pretty pleased with what I achieved on days one and two.
Snatching sewing time here and there (A has had some decent daytime naps, although the hours of 4am to 6am are somewhat rocky right now) I've finished a little shirt for C and started altering a pair of denim pants that he doesn't like to wear (too baggy).
As Meg said on her blog yesterday, as kids get older and their clothes get more detailed, an hour of sewing a day can't achieve finished garments. So true! But I do find that having my dedicated craft space back, so I can leave projects and materials laid out, means I can sit down when ever a short snatch of time materialises and get on with a bit of pinning or sewing or pressing.
Or even seam ripping, recutting a collar, or stuffing up buttonholes if you're a bit sleep deprived.
