Tuesday was spent taping the Lil Blue Boo Hoodie pattern together and tracing size 4T for the boy. The brown and the red fabric used to be tank tops of mine, The blue hood used to be a shirt of mine. The grey fleece and yellow ribbing were in my stash.
The boy is just in love with it and wants to wear it everyday. That makes it one of the coolest things ever!! I, on the other hand, think it's missing something, and I don't know what it is. The hood is silly big, hence the silly hood pic. I think without the hood and adding a neck and arm ribbing, this will be a good PJ shirt pattern. I can see lots being made, and soon, as there are two rotating pairs of PJs for the boy.
As for Thursday's hour to sew for the kids, it didn't happen. I received a phone call from my local sewing machine store. They have a booth this weekend at the Coastal Quilt Guild's Quilt Show and forgot to procure some quilts to hang in the booth. So they called me and asked me to bring some down for them to hang. UM WHAT!?!?! I was beyond flattered, immediately washed all the bed quilts, and brought them down to the store last night. I also brought a few baby quilts and bags for sale. I am still so shocked they called me. Such an honor really. I had to work on getting everything together for that instead of sewing for the kids.........totally excusable in my opinion. Hopefully I will get some decent pictures when I go on Saturday. I am so nervous to have MY stuff in the same building as quilts from the Coastal Guild. We're talking insanely talented people that have been doing this for years and years. Freaking out now :)
Well, I was supposed to be an editor living in New York and wearing black everyday and never get married or have kids.....but that didn't happen, so instead, I became a stay at home mom with two radical kids and an awesome husband(6 out of 7 days). I think I could be described as "crazy but in a good way."
