Hello? hello? (echo, echoooooo)
lol Most of the time I feel like I am doing this blog just to hear (ok, see) myself type. Oh well, it is a good documentation of the days of my life.
Life doesn't slow down in our house. Not even for sleep. Littlest Man is teething, Big Brother is sick and momma gets no sleep.
I've still managed to finish up some custom orders (though I'm not overly fond of them, they are exactly what she wanted), and part of the Christmas present for my oldest daughter. The customs are newborn pillowcase outfits in safari animal prints. They turned out well enough, I just don't particularly care for the prints used. But she is excited to get them and gift them, so I am happy for that.
I'm working on making her a "grown up" shirt that I had planned on finishing long before school started. Yes, we are two weeks into the new school year and I barely have the neckline cut out. What I wouldn't give for a full nights sleep and a full day of sewing (sans computer, it's a HUGE distraction for me).
For ODD's X-Mas gift, she is getting a super cute purse with matching wristlet for girly things and some makeup. This was my first purse ever and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I got the free pattern and tutorial from LOLA..Again, and it is the "Angel" pattern. I *almost* want to keep this one for myself and make her another. Almost lol.
Since it was requested, the link to the Lola..Again blogspot where I found the fabulous zebra bag pattern is here:. I didn't do a direct link to the tutorial, because quite honestly, there are too many rules on these things, and she has some amazing projects on her blog. You should check out the whole thing. Happy creating!
