The Seamless Pledge
I'm the featured pledger today on Len's awesome blog Seamless. As I said there I'm still committed to the pledge, with the occasional slip. I work full-time and try to spend as much time as possible with my little one, so I do the best I can. It's carried over to other aspects of our life. We moved to New Zealand to try to become less consumption focused, and we try to avoid buying things, except what we really need. I'm sure as the little one grows he'll become more demanding, but for now he doesn't care.
I have been sewing (slowly) I attended a great sewing retreat yesterday, organized by Ange and Anissa. I spent most of my time basting organza to wool for my upcoming peplum top, but I also cut out stencils to make my son some new t-shirts/singlets. I bought him a Spiderman t-shirt a week ago, and he's been wearing it non-stop. Instead of buying him more expensive (and gaudy) superhero t-shirts I decided to make some myself with plain shirts. Here he is in his Superman t-shirt.
And his best superman impression:
He loves it. I also made his pants, elephant pants v.2.0 (the first pair was pants, became high-waders and then shorts as he grew). I also need to stop cutting his hair myself . . .
