Night Sew

I'm Aurelie, the Mama to my three lovely children and wife to a very patient husband. Occasionally, I fit in time to knit, embroider, and sew--usually after my trio has retired to bed. Thus most of my stuff has been sewn during the night, with a foggy Mama brain, a 'night sew'. My daughter years ago recognized this and took to making her requests as I was kissing her goodnight tucked into her wee bed.

"Mama, pwlease make me a pink cindewelly dress tonight when I sweep. Da one da birds make.  Dank you."

Many times items are finished as I'm dropping into bed, already mostly asleep with good intentions to take photographs in the morning light. Thinking of the last 5 years, I've realized how few of those pictures were taken.  Worse, the documentation of those few are scattered among several hard-drives.  Night sew will hopefully be the project to change that. My first goal is to get new stuff up and secondly, to dig into the archives.
