I've been really busy lately, but I am trying to manage my time better in order to get more things done. I need more "at home" time! I've been trying to make use of little pockets of time, such as the minute or two it takes for a cup of coffee to brew, or if I can get ready for work fast enough in the morning, there might be a few minutes left for crafting or cleaning.
Recent examples of things done during that short pocket of time when the coffee is brewing are that I unloaded most of a load of dishes from the dishwasher, folded a few pieces of laundry and started some tea bags brewing. In the past I would jump up during a TV commercial and quilt a little. Now we watch most of our tv on Netflix, so no commercials! LOL
Using small pockets of time works well for sewing projects. Here are some key fobs I've been working on lately. This one is for my daughter.
This one is for my friend and coworker.
This is one in progress for my daughter-in-law.
I finally learned how to download embroidery patterns from the internet! I bought this curly monogram from an Etsy shop. This was just a practice piece, using some scrap fabric, but you can see how it will turn out. I am going to be putting monograms on bags, and more, for gifts. In pockets of time, I can work on them in baby steps. The first step is to choose the fabric, followed by pressing the fabric and putting it and the stabilizer into the hoop.

Have a great day!
