Lately, i’ve been working hard on custom embroidered onesies. I don’t have these listed in my Etsy shop yet, but i’m thinking that I would like to add some options. I’ve done a few of these previously for friends. They come together fairly easily and allow me to still be creative because they are applique. Take a look!
I got chopped! This post isn’t about crafting, for once. I have had this love/hate relationship with my hair for a very long time. Every time I think about cutting it short, I realize that it would probably be a huge mistake and don’t do it. So the other day, I decided that it is just TOO hot for long hair. Here is what happened…
First, I consulted Pinterest and friends via text. (This is what you do when you are in a long distance relationship with 98% of the people you know.) At this point, I decided that Reese Witherspoon is my hair twin.
This was the look that I was going for, just with more bangs.
This is my scary before shot.
I hit up the farmer’s market before my appointment to grab some veggies and inevitably got sucked into the used book sale and the coffee tent. But hey, YOLO right? <– bahahaha I said YOLO.
Drum Roll: Here is the after.
I must say, I love it! I even liked how she styled it, which never happens. So YAY, a 100% win for today.
I finally get to share this baby quilt with you! I started working on it months ago and finally finished and shipped it last week. I’m really happy with how it turned out.
The front blocks remind me of origami birds, which was where I was going.
This is the very first pieced back that i’ve done. I was kind of nervous, but i like it a lot.
This is the first quilt that i hand bound. It took forever but looks 100% better than when i use the machine. I’ll be dong this again. Phoebe’s mom blogs over at Couldn’t Ask For Moore. Check out her blog and follow her adventures with their 4 kids!
On a side note, it looks like Mr. B. and I may finally have a home to call our own. We have been diligently house hunting for months. We’ve had contracts on two great houses that turned out to have some pricey problems that led us to cancel the contracts. However we had inspection on a third house yesterday that didn’t include any findings of mold or water damage. Is that too much to ask?? Fingers crossed that we have good news in the next few weeks.
I’ve been MIA for a bit! Probably because I feel like i have a motivational and creative clog going on right now. It’s been rough, my sewing machine has been majorly neglected and i’m struggling to finish up two little last minute things on the baby quilt i’ve been making for months.
I’m working on busting through but it’s been tough! I think this calls for some much needed time with pinterest.
