Baby Bear

Six months ago I bought about 10 yards of assorted colors of fleece. Why- because I'm crazy and wanted to make my own cloth diapers. Power to any woman who is able to execute this task and keep up with the stinky maintenance. Fleece baby hats are a far less ambitious plan for all of this fabric, but hey. Super cute right? This was the first attempt and I can only improve on the pattern. My mind is going crazy with the animal possibilities.

Rocker Romper

Cut down one of Joe's t-shirts to make an Eli romper? Yeah. I can do that.

Two years of crochet

This was therapy to make and joy to look at. More please.

Scraps are treasure

I finally finished the baby quilt I started while pregnant with Eli. I get to hold on to so many of the great fabrics I have used in so many other projects. Stipple quilting is pretty gratifying too.

I can still post stuff... right?

Hey, I've been a busy momma! I am wrestling a seven month old at the keyboard as we speak. I have been working on a few things. Here is a bag I made for a fellow momma.

I also came up with an ever important diaper clutch. It holds a pack of wipes and one diaper.

Sales were slow but I do see it as an accomplishment

I had two shows to get through this month... two shows on consecutive weekends... eight months pregnant... in the rain. Yep. Both weekends were wet too. I sold about half of what I was counting on while shivering in the rain. I got through it. I didn't cry about it (much).

I did make a couple of promising business contacts. Schmitt music out of O'Fallon is selling a bunch of my guitar straps.
I also made a deal with a shop in Mascoutah called Kindred Spiritz. Jana has a box full of my stuff to display and sell.

I don't regret busting ass to get ready for these shows. My booth really did look nice.
