First Birthday

Emery, much to my dismay, is about to turn 1 year old. I can hardly believe it! While not cleaning the house, like I should be doing (we are having his birthday party here Saturday), I have been making bibs for him to wear that day. I have, so far, done two. I think I like making bibs better than onesies. I hate that the bib I put on Emery cover up his unique onesies I made for him. So I decided to make unique bibs (they are easier to sew too). It is late now, so there is no sun to take good pictures. I will take them sometime tomorrow. Stay tuned...

As promised!

So I'm posting...finally. Susan will be shocked when she checks the blog tomorrow and sees that her persistent prodding really did pay off! Sorry sis!

I had a very busy craft weekend - which was great! Wayne couldn't understand why I didn't want to be outside with him while he cut the grass, weed-eated, and trimmed. The difference between us is that our yard is his Disney World, whereas my craftroom is mine.

I was able to complete orders for personalized wipe cases, custom bibs, and a taggie blanket. All thanks to Peyton's record-breaking 2+ hour nap! Which NEVER happens. I took it as a sign - go...sew!!!!

I'm starting a diaper bag for my sister-in-law. It's a present for her friend who's about to have a baby. Unfortunately it's in Alabama colors but I'm trying my hardest to make it as non-Alabama-tacky as possible.. We'll see if that's even possible!

Will post pictures tomorrow...when I remember to bring the BATTERY for the camera to work instead of the camera and cable with NO battery. Yeah, doesn't work so well without it!


New Items

Today I added two new items to the etsy store, a blue and white gingham wipe case with a whale applique and a white bib with a airplane applique. I tried to do a little girl oneise applique last night, but my machine started to make holes in the onesie. Called my mom, like daughters do, and she said "Honey, have you ever changed your needle?" There it was, my dahhh moment...
Needless to say-tonight will be the night I change my first needle...


So I broke down and set up a Twitter account...

New Fabrics

I am so excited, I got six new fabrics in the mail yesterday and can not wait to start working on some new appliques. I am going to do some more ties, since those seem to be a favorite. I am also thinking of a pair of wings-on the back of a onesie...wondering what should go on the front... Thoughts?

I am also trying to think of what I am going to make for my sons's first brithday. Bethany is making him an awesome outfit in seersucker. (Love seersucker) But I KNOW he is going to need a bib. I may go get some terry cloth and binding tonight and see what I can come up with. Any thoughts on what applique should go on the bib?

On another note: Matt and I became God parents yesterday morning, to a beautiful baby girl-Kenya. Congratulations Kevin and Katie!!
