Slacker.... (sew-along update)

Well, the sew-along projects are due to be done soon, but... well.... I haven't quite finished mine yet and neither has Stacy, so we're thinking maybe you all are in the same boat as we are :)

How does an extension to Aug 31 sound?

AND, we'd like to open it to include any top pattern of your choice. Have your eye on a special tunic? A peasant blouse? Go for it!

Don't know about you, but summer is just zooming by! Matthew turns 4 months old already next week - I have a feeling that my blur of a summer has a lot to do with him and juggling the other 2 little monkeys :)

Not much sewing news to report - I have been missing my Wonderland fabric though, so I made some of these tonight. (click here to see the listing). Free shipping on all etsy orders ends tomorrow!

Hopefully next post I'll have some sew-along pics for you!

April Showers bring....

Well, if you live in the Northeast, they bring May, June and July Showers! We've got our fingers crossed that August will bring us some sunshine. We all REALLY need it :)

In the spirit of our weather-of-late, here's a new bag I just posted in my Etsy shop
(April Showers fabric by Alexander Henry)

BTW - I'm offering FREE US SHIPPING on all in-stock purchases from my Etsy shop until 7/31!
I've posted a bunch of new ones in the past week :)

Oh!! I have to share my latest favorite "mommy bling" by Lisa Leonard Designs.
Now that I'm officially done having babies (sniff, sniff), I've been wanting to get some neat things with the kids' names / initials on them. Below are pictures of my new teeny tiny initials necklace:

(picture to show the scale of the necklace - yes, that's Matthew's little head there poking up!)

Close-up of the necklace:

I also bought one of the Family Tree necklaces (will take a pic later) and love the simple beauty of it. I'm very tempted to get more of her goodies - she has some really cute birdie things!

New bags!

Quick update! The sun has at last arrived in NH - YEY!!!!! After a month of rain, we are more then ready to get out and start having some summer fun :) Hopefully the garden will recover - it's a pretty pale shade of green-yellow right now...

Anyways, in between custom orders I've been squeezing in some new bags for my etsy shop:

Brown Panda Prints
(bamboo / cotton fabric)

Mod Elephants

Pink Birds and Brown Dots
(the back has MM pink dots on brown)

Have a great weekend everyone! Hope to have some more new prints up next week :)

6 Bridesmaids awaiting...

Okay, so it's actually 5 bridesmaids and 1 bride, but that doesn't fit as well into the 12 Days of Christmas tune that's in my head :)

These little wristlets are on their way to Singpore for a special bride-to-be and her buddies. There are clips at the end of the strap so the bag can convert to a little purse too. Might have to make up some more of these - just too cute for summer!

Also have some fun bags in the shop:

Traffic Jam (a 20 yard bolt arrived the other day - yey!)

Green Birds (Kaufman's Monoluna) - how cute are these little guys?
Also available with a yellow background.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend everyone! We're hoping that it might stop raining long enough to at least grill for a bit. I'm surprised the house hasn't floated away by now...Friends are on their way up, so it will be fun no matter the weather! Happy 4th!
