It has just been a little bit nerve racking trying to keep this too small for us space "show worthy" with our three little mess makers doing what they do best, not to mention packing everyone up and leaving every time someone wants to see the house (or decides not to show up). Imagining doing it with a newborn was literally keeping me up at night. My parent's "basement" is actually a nice walk out space with plenty of windows and light...in fact the ceilings are a couple of feet taller than ours! :) We will have our own entrance and it is equipped with a kitchenette and laundry room. It will be sad to say good-bye to this house and all of the wonderful people and memories here but, I am excited to have my mom (and grandma) just up the stairs and to be going back to where both Jeff and I grew up.
So, I am busy packing boxes, changing addresses, doing what you do before you move. I really don't have time for all of the sewing I want to do...but I'm finding bits of time to sneak a few projects in. Wanna see?
I'm loving the appliquéd onesie idea. I've seen it all over the place in blogland but just kind of figured it out as I went. Just basically found shapes I liked using Google images, put iron-on stuff on pieces of material and cut it out and then ironed it on to the onesies and sewed around it...easy and totally addicting....
...as you can see I may have gotten a little carried away! Some of these are for baby Bradley too :)
I was so excited when I found this owl material by Alexander Henry! I just love the subtle colors and all of the little owl characters. I'm planning to make Ollie a little quilt with it but cut out a few of my favorite owls for onesies too.
And both Ollie and Bradley should be fine in the Pod department. I decided to use the new rounded bottom pattern that I added last year...just a bit more room for their little toes.
all bundled up and ready!
Just finished a stack of Better Burpies using this fabric:
Does it look familiar? It's actually part of a king sized flannel sheet set I bought at Kohls two years ago for 5 dollars...yards and yards of fabric! I love it for boys burpies and I've even made a quilt using it. There is still plenty left for receiving blankets or whatever. I love when I find a deal like that!
So anyway, that's what we're up to. Wish us luck over here...It's gonna be a doozy of a month!
