I will be leaving on Oct 1st for a trip to see family with the littlest munchkin, so I will be finishing up this weeks dozen or so trainers and I couple of diapers from my new design.  I won't have time for much else, but I will open customs up again when I get back on the 8th.  I will also be calling for some testers for my new waterproof trainers in the middle of October.

Now that we are all settled in our new home, I am going to give this blog another shot! Life has been crazy & exciting for us lately. 

We now have a new kitchen, thanks to my amazing husband:

a delightful & always adorable 3 yr old:

 So welcome back to my adventure as a wife, mommy, WAHM, knitter, seamstress, cook & athlete!

Big stocking & a little modeling

My 3 little girls were so sweet to let me work while they played around me today.  I have a huge stocking lined up for tomorrow!

Little Cupcake was happy to do a little modeling for me tonight.  She is sporting a bamboo Cloth Indulgence medium fitted. 

I did a little picking up and organizing, so here is my new sewing room. The room is enormous, so the kids can hang out and color and play while I work. I am dying to get some pics and shelving on the walls.

A Little Taste...

I seem to always be moving so fast that I forget to take pictures of things before they go out.  My awesome husband was easily talked into a new camera, so maybe that will help a little :)

First, a Sleuthing Hoodie

This sweater took me a whole month!!!  It was a really awesome knit though and I am completely satisfied with the results.  It was for a swap and I got some beautiful Julibeans BBR in exchange for my knitting.  The colorway is Disc Baby Knits "jungle Gent."  She also has a colorway called "Jungle Chic" that I am dying to get!

Next, a set of custom trainers.  No matter how many of these I make, and I have made hundreds, they are still fun!   I just love how cute they are and I remember how much my own little girls loved them when they were potty learning.

Just for fun, here is my little princess who is turning 4 this week!

Happy Easter & Sewing!!

We have had a wonderful Easter weekend complete with Easter baskets, egg coloring and bison steaks on the grill!  My rockin' husband worked on our chicken coop so that we can get some chickens within the next few weeks.  Even the weather was nice!  Amidst all the fun, I still managed to get a little sewing in :)

Here are some pads for a customer in Norway. They are natural bamboo velour with colored fleece backing.

A set of pads for a coop order that I am woking on right now. 

Tonight, I will be sewing trainers like mad!!  I have 35 to get done in the next 10-14 days!!!

Custom Diapers

I happily finished an order of custom diapers tonight.  Diapers are time consuming for me, but they are the product that brings me the most satisfaction.  So, without further ado, this is what I have been working on all week... up, stocking some trainers, knitting, Yoga Meltdown, and a bubble bath!

Good Night!!

Dyeing Fabric

It occurred to me recently that I should really make some time to keep up with this blog!  I guess I will start with today.  This afternoon my two older girls helped me dye some fabric.  We started mixing colors and I realized I didn't have my camera, so oh well, we didn't take pics of the process.  There was no way that I was going to step away from the dye to get it. That could have very quickly turned into a disaster!!! So, I will just post pics of the end product.  We dyed some t-shirts for their baby sister, because she is quickly outgrowing all of her clothes and we also did some cuts of bamboo velour.  One of which I am over-dying for a custom diaper right now because the colors just didn't come out dark enough.  I am excited to sew up the bamboo velour into a diaper or two and some pretty mama cloth.  I am extremely happy with the colors :)
