I've been at it again, and have been sewing up a storm. Halloween costumes, baby blankets and burp rags. This week I have to sew 3 more blankets and 1 ninja Halloween costume and I have to make a some more clay magnets and a couple of ornaments. I don't think I have enough to do. I think I need to pile on a few more things. Actually, I really enjoy the sewing and creating... it's just harder with a toddler pushing the sewing machine pedal for you, trying to use the scissors as a teething ring, and whining over and over until you pick him up. It's all good.
Here's a baby blanket I made for my friend Tracee, who had the cutest, chubbiest baby boy, just last week. I think my uterus began to twitch when I held him.

Another snugly blanket for baby Dawson.
I made these cute little Halloween ornaments for my wire tree. I sewed them out of muslim, painted them, sanded them, then stained them with a hot coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon mixture.
The pumpkin stem is made out of a cinnamon stick. How clever is that?
Stay tuned for further creations!
