I am sooooo excited to be back!! I hope you’ve been well and stayed creative and are having a great November!!
I’ve always thought that the cooler weather months stir something up in me and encourage me to go down and in, clearing out some cobwebs and getting back to work! I’ve been working on a few things that I’d like to share with you and am working on a few others that will appear in my shop soon.
First, I was asked by my fantastically-talented-photographer-friend to make a gift for her new niece, and I was so excited!! A couple of years ago, I created and gifted this to my yoga friend, Stephanie, as she welcomed her first baby:
I wish I’d taken an ‘after’ photo of this!!
I enjoyed the individuality of this quilt so much, I was inspired to make this one for M:
Another friend is traveling to Disney with her family for Christmas and had asked me to make stockings for the eight of them…
I changed the cuff on Dee’s to white, and added red bows on the Minnie toes and onto Ollie’s stocking, too. I need to get better at taking ‘after’ photos!!
There is much more to share, but I’ve been called away – back soon, I promise!!
I knit longies and machine-embroider Onesies to match. Lots of you know this already. ; )
It hit me as I was doing dishes (have no idea what that relationship is…) – Wouldn’t it be helpful if I offered more than one Onesie or shirt for each pair of longies? Thinking back, I went through more shirts than woolies when my kids were babies, and it would have been nice to have had more than one shirt available for the set.
I have been working on more sets that will be listed soon, but if you spot a set in my Etsy shop currently and would like a second, more customized Onesie for the longies you’re admiring, get in touch with me! I can do lots of custom embroidery and can coordinate favorite colors, too!
Just now, fold yourself in half (doesn’t matter if you’re sitting or standing – I’m not picky). Bend your knees as much as you need to to release your low back and stay for at least a minute.
My neice, Hannah, recently went through a growth spurt and has blown out of alot of her pants! She has an itty bitty waist but long legs (like her mama), so I’ve made some pants for her over the last couple of days to accomodate her longer inseam…and to soften the impact to her mama’s wallet. (Love you, Lea Ann!)
I repurposed a pair of my teenage son’s dress pants which were very good quality and barely used, as he shot through that size like nobody’s business. To make the pants especially hers, I used my machine to embroidery an owl on the front of the left pantleg.
These should do the trick…for a while. ; )
Have a great day!
