Staying busy.....

I've been trying to do different things for my shop latley to get a bigger variety of items up. I have a few ideas and things I've been working on that have been keeping me busy. This afternoon when Chloe was napping and the sun decided to come out I managed to get some pictures of some new items I posted today! I LOVE the new Taggie/Lovey Blanket for infants and Toddlers, I'm gonna make my daughter one this evening they come out so cute!

Holy summers day in the fall

It's been hot the past few days. I thought the summer weather was gone for the year but a heat wave decided to bless San Diego County with it's presences. I'm ready for fall. Since it's been pretty hot out Chloe and I have been keeping cool hanging out at home, which means I have some time for sewing. This afternoon while watching the USC game I managed to sew a one of favorite things, a Ribbon Bib.

A little shopping trip.....

A trip to the fabric store landed all this super cute fabric fabric on my table! I'm so stoked I finally found some cute Shabby Chic fabric (the top piece is my fave!) I've been working on my daughters room for a long time now and I've been wanting to make her some Shabby Chic curtains, laundry basket....so on and so on. I can't wait to get to work!

Fresh fruit first thing in the morning

In our house we have been trying to eat healthier. And I find myself at Henrys Farmers Market a few time a week trying to get some fresh veggies and fruit. When I was a little girl my Nama would ALWAYS give us Grapefruit as a snack, I decided to pick on up the other day. It made a lovely breakfast this morning!

On a roll

I've been trying new things lately. Reading up on new material, checking out new patterns. It's been really fun! It most definitely keeps me busy. Yesterday I made my first Crayon roll, it came out "ok" I had to much fun making the first one I made a second later in the evening. My daughter LOVES it though, as do I. Now I just need to make one big enough for her washable markers, I cannot can't seeing them laying around the house with the caps off.

My FIRST try....

And...My SECOND try :)

They were so much fin to make, I'm looking forward to making many more. And I now have another reason to head to the fabric store :)

Baby Evelyn, gifts

So after I had some coffee and played with my daughter a bit this morning I got a phone call from my girlfriend who just had a baby this past week. She wanted me to take her daughters new born pictures, so this late afternoon/evening I'm gonna head over there and do those, but after I hung up with her I made her a few little gifts, which then got me motivated, thank god!

Here's a few things I made.
(Reversal Car Seat strap covers, 2 Washies//Wipes, Burp Cloth, Bib)

Creative block, HELP!

I woke up this morning to my husband walking in the door from being at work (his new command PT's in the morning then he's been coming home to change) While he was running 5K my lazy butt was sleeping in. Hey I was up until 2:30am that morning. Anyhow, here I am sitting in front of my computer & sewing machine and I have a complete creative block! I have so much fabric and don't know here to begin......I hate when this happens. I think I just have so many ideas I cannot choose one to start on.

I'll drink my coffee and see where I am after that.

I was really busy today trying to keep my little Princess occupied and content, and I had to run to the Fabric store but wanted to be somewhat productive so I did TWO sets of FOUR pack Washies//Wipes. I love making these, so quick and cute! And I love that I can actually use these for my daughter, they really do make bath time more fun!

Feeling Girly & Productive!

I woke up this morning and was ready to get A LOT done. I was feeling a little girly with my little Princess dancing around the house in her little TUTU all afternoon so I sewed these super soft & cute Cheneille Burp Cloths. They came out beautiful, and sometimes I wish my daughter was still a baby so I could keep them for myself.
