There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Some sewing projects
I make most of my husband's boxers. I enjoy doing it -- it's an easy, quick project. I almost always use fabric from my stash (sometimes they are very outlandish!) so they are also cheap -- I only have to buy the elastic. Since my embroidery machine was working ferociously this weekend, I took the opportunity to make some boxers. This was old fabric, left over from some project for my son (he's 20 now, and this is SPACE JAM fabric) so it has been in my stash for awhile.
I also sewed up some flannel pajama pants for my daughter. This fabric was purchased for this project, but I think it was probably purchased at least a year, and maybe two years ago. They turned out warm and soft!
