I fully understand and appreciate the rivalry between UW and WSU (UW is way better, obviously), so I think the idea for these burp cloths was pretty darn cute (it wasn’t my idea, so unfortunately I can’t take the credit). The dad is a UCLA alum and the mom is a USC professor.
Last Saturday I went to the fabric store for a jewelry clasp and somehow ended up in the home decor section. My gut told me NEW PILLOWS, followed closely by SPRING, so I went with it. Here are the pillows we’ve had for a while, re-covered to look like new. (See the original pillows I made here.)
I was at work for 13 hours yesterday. Which means, if you factor in my commute, I was gone from my apartment for FIFTEEN HOURS. I recognize fully that that is complete and utter insanity and I have no way to explain it. But it is a really good excuse for having a lame blog post, and to explain any spelling or grammatical errors you might notice.
Today you get to see greeting cards I made in 2008! Back when I had time for things like hand sewing buttons to cardstock in order to make car wheels.
I got the order for these two baby sets about two weeks ago – approximately the day before my sewing machine started skipping stitches. A repair, mind you, that I’ve had done twice now. I won’t even go into how frustrating that is for a brand new sewing machine because I don’t want to get all worked up and bore you. (But seriously, right?)
Anywho. We have the pink set – the pink fabric is made from a vintage bed spread which makes me so happy I could just burst. Pink? Vintage? Babies? Eek. (Don’t worry, I washed the bedspread twice before cutting and sewing.)
Plaids for baby girls. I love that idea, which is probably why this purple set is seriously striking my fancy.
These are for my friend Kim who I played soccer with years ago. Not only is she a mom, but she has three (seriously adorable) kiddo’s! It seems like just yesterday we were 13 and winning the state championship with our other Rockin’ Robins teammates. Aaahh, good times.
And of course, a shout-out to this pattern:
P.S. In honor of the holidays, I give you snow on my blog.
