Hello all my blog friends...it's been a while since I've posted. I'm glad that Mom has been keeping the blog up though. She's been a lot more productive then me when it comes to sewing! She always inspires me.
Life has been busy and full lately. Who could sew when they have such a cute baby to play with?
Elliot is now 5 months old, and sooooo adorable.
Tonight he was laying on the floor while I was cutting buttonholes and actually playing "peek a boo" with me. He kept pulling his blanket over his face and when I would ask "Where's Elliot?" He would pull it off and smile at me. I thought that was pretty amazing for a baby his age. I even got a video of him doing it on my camera because Justin wasn't home and I knew he wouldn't believe me unless he saw it. =)
Today I went to Hancocks because I had $10 burning a hole in my pocket...I had so much fun. I got several different 1/4 and 1/2 yards pieces of coordinating fabrics...pretty rose prints that were 60% off. Not sure what they are destined to be yet, but I'm sure I'll be able to think of something. Also got a piece of peach fabric to make the ties for a vintage pillowcase apron. I've made several of these and they are beautiful. Hopefully I'll be able to get some good pictures soon.
Right now I'm working on a bunch of tea-cozies. I found some beautiful prints at Hobby lobby and have 12 tea-cozies cut out and partially sewed. I'm hoping to be able to sell them in some of the tea-shops around here and on Etsy. We'll see. I'm praying that they'll sell, because I certainly don't need 12 tea cozies!
I did sew a skirt for myself last week...I found this awesome fabric clearanced for $3 a yard and made a quick, bias cut skirt to wear to my brother-in-law's wedding this last weekend. I hadn't sewn anything for myself since I was pregnant, so this was fun. I love how the fabric has white embroidery all over it. I like the texture and depth it gave the fabric.
Here I am with my handsome husband. He was a groomsman in the wedding.
That's all for now!
