Finally, a few spare moments and a willing 2 year old.

The first muslin trial pair was a little snug. Second attempt, super cute stripped terry cloth, and a pattern ready for more!

Sometimes when your (ok, when I'm, I know some people love being pregnant) pregnant and your feeling sorry for yourself because you are feeling so rotten. You do things that you wouldn't normally do to make yourself feel better.

This one turned out to be brilliant! When I was signing up for our CSA (community supported agriculture) farm share this year, in addition to our regular veg, fruit and egg share I signed up for a flower share. I have passed it up every other year trying to be frugal. What a mistake!

I picked up our first share this week and there sat this beautiful bouquet, just for me, oh those brilliant pregnancy hormones. I get this little piece of heaven every Thursday! Definately my new favorite day of the week.

Hopefully you found your own little piece of joy today.

Sewing time?

I'm swamped at work, our house is a wreck and I have lots of gardening to do... all I really want to do is sew.

For Keenan:
Finish designing his new "big boy bed" quilt and start sewing it! Using this fabric from Ikea.
Refashion a few of his long sleeve pj's into short sleeve and short combos
Make a few knit short with matching tees, maybe with a applique design like this by designerjot.

For Me:
A case for my new ipad! Stylish fabric, with the ability to hook to the head rest in the car so Keenan can watch movies on it during long trips.

For my Sister:
Her overdue, only getting more overdue, birthday present that is sitting on my sewing table and involves fabric made from old rice sacks like this. We had matching dresses out of this fabric, which we made when we were younger. Horrible family photo, which you will not see, to verify it!

And a bunch of other stuff, but this would be a good start. Maybe I can make myself a deal, clean one room in the house and you earn an hour of sewing time. Maybe?
