Some business....Some playtime

I have quite a number of trainers that I am making right now between customs and a coop that just closed...103 to be exact!! Holy batman! That is a lot of trainers!  In the midst of the huge trainer stocking, I am trying to get some diapers and maybe some mama cloth done for my regular stockings.  Thankfully, my miniature humans are being more cooperative during the day so I am not so exhausted at night when it is time to work. 
Here is the custom set that I just finished for a really sweet mama:

It has been in the 70's here, so the girls and I have been taking advantage and have been spending quite a bit of time at the park.  They love to play outside and I love that the house stays cleaner when we are gone for a majority of the day!

This week in sewing!

I have accomplished a lot this week and here is just a taste of all that I have done.   I was really not in the mood for picture taking, so I didn't take pictures of the diapers that I finished. Though, I have a few more to make for my stocking next Tuesday.

This is a custom pack of trainers:

A surpise pack of trainers:

Some pads that I have stocking on Tuesday:

Action Shots!

Jocelyn finally decided that she would do some modeling for me! I love these pics of her and I think she is actually starting to look like me a little bit :)

Newborn fluffies!

I just finished these for a mama for a trade! I love them, especially the owls!

Knitting Projects

I knit this pair of socks for my mom for Christmas. They took FOR.EV.ER!  It wasn't that they were difficult, as you can see they have no pattern. My 2 year old little angel decided to help me knit and pulled all the needles out and proceeded to frog them for me when I was about 4 inches into them the first time. Then, I decided I didn't like the pattern I was using anyway, so I searched for a new pattern. I finally decided to just knit a nice, plain, pair of socks! Ahhhhhh, finally finished!  Now that she has them, I can post pics!  They are knit on firetip sport dyed by Selah in their Peter colorway.

I just finished the button loop on the kimono this morning! I adore this set. It figures that Jocelyn won't even try it on :( Maybe I will try again tomorrow. She has been in a pretty awful mood the past couple of days!  The top is knit from the SMSS Kimono pattern and the longies are Sheepy Pants.  They are both pretty easy well written patterns.  I was hoping to get the set done for Christmas, but with the unexpected length of time that the socks took, it just didn't happen. I did however finish the longies in a record (for me) time of 4 days! They have an 11 inch inseam!!  Hopefully I will be able to take some action shots soon.  They are knit with Cestari Superfine dyed in Mosaic Moon's Foxglove colorway and Cestari's Winter White.
