Living overseas for a temporary job makes me look at things differently. One of these things is how much stuff we accumulate. Every time my kids want something, I think about our seventeen suitcases we have to take back. They are not getting any big toys. We also pared down on clothes, shoes and a lot of other things that seemed to just grow in the closets back home.
It is also helping me with my projects. I don’t want to take a bunch of UFO’s home with me. There are enough waiting for me that I packed away before we left. I am really working hard on finishing things. It also helps that three of my children are in school full-time now.
These are the projects that I’m working on, and hope to finish this month.
– quilted bag (almost done)
– doll for G2 for Christmas present
– doll clothes for G2’s doll (I know that technically these two should be one item, but I like to be able to cross things off the list)
– Christmas wall quilt
– mat from the class
