Sewing for myself & other happenings....

Last night something shocking happened!! Everyone (husband included) was in bed and asleep by 8:30pm! Dinner was cooked & kitchen was cleaned, so I was so excited to enjoy some guilt-free sewing time! Yay! I hardly ever sew for myself, but I found this really cute tutorial for a sassy, Summer top over at Sew Caroline & figured that would be my fun little project.

Here's what I ended up creating! I love it! I paired it with a cardigan and will probably end up adding straps, because I know with 2 little ones that I would be lifting it up all the time! It was a fun, relaxing evening to myself & hopefully the stars will align again soon & I can do it again! Ha!

In other news, today was Fritter's last offical day of PK-3! She has grown so much in just 9 months, so I took a picture to compare with her first day of school picture!

Weight on 8/25: 33lbs    Weight on 5/23: 35lbs
Height on 8/25: 37 1/2in   Height on 5/23: 39 1/2 in.
She looks like a little girl, instead of a baby....tear! :-(

Speaking of baby....This sweet boy just turned 10 months this week! He is just the sweetest and snuggliest thing ever!

Well, my hubby is off for 6 whole days starting tomorrow and early into next week, so we are so excited to spend lots of quality time with him this weekend! I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend too!

Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway!

Well my goodness, I have not fallen off the planet, but I have been really busy with my 2 little ones and trying to load my store with lots of new fun items, so I haven't blogged lately, but I'm excited to start back! My Fritter finished PK-3 this week, so I'm so excited about Summer and no responsiblities!

I'm so excited to show everyone what I have been up to lately in my Etsy shop! I have been going through all of my stash of vintage linens & my new designer style fabrics and using them up to make sweet girl clothing! I still have lots more on the cutting table, so I can't wait to get all of those finished up!

Here are some of my newest listings:

In honor of kick starting my shop again, I am excited to participate in the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! I just love this day & I pretty much stay up way too late looking through all of the great items that creative people are giving away! I'm excited to be a part of it!

I'm excited to giveaway one of my Amy Butler Dream Daisy Knot Dresses! It can be made any size 18M-5T. This dress is made from a 400 thread count organic Amy Butler Sheet Set, so it is super soft & fun for everyday wear or for a dressy occasion!
