New Project

So I finished this new plush toy I created last night. I'm so happy with the finished results. I will definitely be making more to add to my shop. I decided to name these guys Hugabee's since there so soft and cuddly. This one is named Eple. He's made of navy blue fleece and I used some Amy Butler fabric scraps for his arms, ears, and belly. I will post more very soon. Have a wonderful weekend :)

The beginning of many more messes to come

So my son started eating cheerios and these little puff cereal finger foods. It was troubling at first to watch him make the gagging like motion, but 10 minutes later he kept banging on his tray for more. He's definitely becoming more interested in what we are eating rather than his baby food. I just hope he doesn't have a big appetite like his father.

New Fabrics

I love these fabrics I ordered off of Etsy to make some more bibs and maybe some new stuff. I'm excited to do some sewing this weekend. I'll have new project to post very soon.

Julio - Weekend Project

The weekend went by to fast and it's already Tuesday. My husband decided to stay home Saturday, so we all hung out and enjoyed the warm weather. I did complete one project I've been wanting to do for a while. I decided to try something new with my owl eyes. I seen a lot of other artist do this and I wanted to see if I could. So I did and this is my finished result. I'm pleased with how it came out. I named this owl Julio. My husband liked the effect, but thought it was a little to realistic. He felt like Julio was watching his every move. So of course I had the pleasure of placing Julio in places where my husband could see him, just to mess with him a bit. I'm still debating on whether or not I'll make a few more owls like this.

So glad it's Friday. Yes, that's a pic of me above playing around with my camera. I know it's silly, but I was a little bored and needed a break. I have tons of laundry to do and many sewing projects to start and finish. It will be just me and my son hanging out together this Saturday. Maybe we can make a painting for his dad tomorrow, I'm sure that's a surprise he'll love when he gets home from work. Well enough about me, I hope whoever is reading this, has a wonderful weekend.

Weekend Goodness

Craft Show

The craft show I participated in on Saturday went very well. It was my second craft show and I actually had a lot of fun. My mom and I shared a space together and we had my son with us. He was so good and seemed to enjoy watching people walk by. If you're wondering what my mom does on the side you can check out her web site Gems by M . Below are some pics of my table I set up. I opted not to take any pics of my mom and I, we were looking a little rough since we had some last minute prep the night before for the show.

Family Time

Sunday was a really nice day to spend time with my family. My son is starting to crawl around like crazy and grabbing everything in site. But it's cool to watch him. I can't wait for warmer weather, Spring seems to be right around the corner!

Sew Sew Sew...did I say Sew?

Happy Tuesday! I have quit a bit of sewing to get done and not much time. The craft show I'll be in is this Saturday and I need to find some motivation to finish my stuff! I hope I don't sound like I'm freaking out, cause I'm really not. I just can't seem to find enough time in my day anymore. Do you have the same problem? Right now we live in a 2 bedroom apartment and my "studio" is in our dining room. My husband doesn't mind at all, but we can't wait to move out this summer and get a bigger place, so we can have a craft room and my son can have his own room. Well I have to go, it's going to be a gloomy day out here, but I hope you all have a wonderful day :).

My "Studio" more like my crafting space

Weekend Fun

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was actually pretty relaxing. My son has his first tooth growing in, so a lot of our time was spent trying to keep him happy. Being a first time mom, I never know what to expect with my child. He's a wonderful baby overall, but there are days where I just look at him and think to myself..."did I have you to soon?", but then he smiles at me and it just makes my day.

Saturday my sister watched our son and we were able to get away for a while. My husband and I ended up going to the Textile Museum in Dupont Circle, Washington DC. They had only one exhibit open, but they had a pretty nice library with a lot of vintage sewing, knitting, fashion, and other really cool books. We plan to go back when they have some more exhibits open.
