I bought this book ages ago and have browsed over the pictures while drinking tea but have never really explored it like I should have. Seeing as I have a hand cramp from hand stitching the binding on this project (which I will show tomorrow) I thought I would treat myself to a tea and a book during nap time (fingers crossed that it will be a long one!).

Everything shown here has already been assigned a task on the sewing 'to do' list in my head. That list just keeps getting longer and longer! I only wonder how I will ever get to it - especially when our weeks were as full as this one. But that is a question I will have to ponder later because right now I am going to crawl back into bed and try to get a few more minutes of sleep. The girls both had fevers the last few days and no one in our house was getting any sleep. This can make for a slightly cranky mama especially when she is already so sleep depraved!
I will have some finished projects to share next Monday, and a few old ones that I haven't had a chance to take photos of yet. Hopefully we will get some sun this weekend!

Fried rice from the Golden Dragon (my friend's family restaurant) was an absolute staple in my diet when I was dancing. On Fridays Cecilia would bring me rice to school and I would often eat rice for dinner on my dance breaks during the week. Something about those bean sprouts and peas.. mmmmm! So GOOD! And I think there will also be a Cantonese chow-mein tutorial in my future too! I am so excited and so is Nick. Baby C is not quite sure what to think about all the rice that I've been giving her as she has a hard time getting it to stay on her spoon (that happens when you turn it upside down) but she loves those peas, and I love to watch her eat them!
I guess the only downside of eating my favourite dish all the time is having Baby C take a bite and immediately hand me her fork to "hap" her load it up... oh, who am I kidding? That's not a downside, it's just cute!

I also got to fit in a bit of crafting and I just love crafting for fall. Not only is it my absolute favourite season but I get to use all of my absolute favourite colours. I was able to steal away for a few minutes to get some fabric cut for a birthday present for my mother in law. My due date* is this Friday, and so far the cutting is all that I have finished - and I don't have a free night to work on it until Thursday. Oh well, this just might be another 4:30am-6:30 am project, but I'm getting used to it and I embrace the challenge!
* Edited to add: My 'due date' is my mother in law's birthday not an actual due date! No more babies for me until at least someone can talk and sleep through the night!

Days like yesterday make not sleeping for 4 months (ahem... I guess 20 months would be more accurate) straight completely worth it!
