I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. Lots of custom requests, lots of project for family members I've left undone for far too long, lots of projects I want to start but have no time for, lots of Christmas presents I want to make, lots of opportunities from Sewing Summit I need to follow up on, the list goes on. When I get overwhelmed I tend to freeze and do nothing (or at least it feels that way). I'm trying to get my act together, but in the mean time, here's a glimpse into my world lately!
This is my mom! She'll probably kill me for posting this pic (yes, she reads my blog religiously, even if she doesn't understand half of all the fabric mumbo jumbo). You can see I come by my silly faces naturally!
My new, and LOCAL!, friend Stephanie made this for me--for no other reason that she totally rocks!!!! She used my alphabet pattern but shrunk it down to a virtually impossible 1.5"high! That is some kick ass paper piecing my friend! I totally cried when I opened it! Thank you again!
I made a shower curtain for Ann Kelle's blog! I don't know how she made my crappy pictures look that good, but she's pretty fab!
My oldest kiddo turned 6! I had to make his cake because he wanted Green Lantern and that's not "in" right now. I hate to bake so this was a labor of love!
My youngest is growing naughtier by the day, but he's just so dang cute!
Went to the Franklin Pumpkin Festival and ran into these cool dudes!
Both boys got an A+ at their doctor and dental appointments! We like to pass the waiting time by making silly faces.
A Flickr friend, Jenny, asked me to make her some boxy bags--she even sent me the fabric!
I was super happy with how they came out! They both have laminated Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet on the inside! They are also HUGE! That's a FQ bundle of Prince Charming on the inside!
It wasn't until I finished this one that I realized the radios matched up along the zipper. TOTAL ACCIDENT! I'm simply not that talented to do it on purpose! I really wanted to keep this one!
The rugrats had fun Trick or Treating and I had fun passing out candy!
Hopefully I'll get my act together soon and have more projects to share!
