What a week...


Good Friday everyone! This week really got away from me. I guess I didn't realize how stressed out I was over the whole craft fair thing, because this week has been amazingly relaxing. Aside from the whole cough syrup incident, that is. We've had really beautiful weather and Isaiah and I have been outside everyday. John had off from work on Wednesday (for Emancipation Day, which D.C. celebrates), and we broke in our new bikes with a trip on the bike path in front of our house. We discovered a beautiful lake a few miles away with a lot of birds. Today, we rode the opposite way to a marina on the Anacostia River. We have really been enjoying these family days, and I am looking forward to getting back in shape. Maybe this "baby" belly will finally disappear after 2 years :)

I'm working on a shop update right now. There will be plenty of wristlets (including the one above) and Dopp Kits in there by the end of the weekend. Perfect Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts, if I do say so myself.

Next week I'll be posting a tutorial for the Sew, Mama, Sew! contest, so check back. I think it's a good one :) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Sounds like a great week - it's finally warming up around here too.

I'm excited to see your tutorial - I've got one in the works too.

what a wonderful week! The weather was great for bike riding. I love the bird wrislet, that was one I almost came home with! But I felt the pink (also bird) would get more use. Hope you have more great weeks!

I have that bird fabric and use a little of it in everything I sew these days! It comes in a few colorways, but I love the one you used the best. Lovely little project.
