I promise we’re still alive (in case anyone was wondering…)!
I have been super busy working on some pattern tests that I can’t show you yet (but they are AMAZE-BALLS so stay tuned!). I also have my Etsy shop which means I have to do paid sewing
yawn. And, in case you haven’t noticed because you live under a rock, Thanksgiving is in three days! Oy. We’re having about twenty people including kids, and also two babies, so that’s going to be crazy. We’re cooking two turkeys, people! And then I’m making a black and gold 50th birthday cake for Saturday (thanks goodness my sister will be here to watch my boys!). I think I’m going to try to make Swiss Meringue Buttercream for it. Also, the baby is getting not one, but two teeth. And has started chewing when he’s done eating, so that doesn’t feel so great…
Here are some pics to tide you over (and you know, my kids are cute) til we get back to regular posting:
I dyed the end of my hair pink! This is a big step for this un-tattooed, un-pierced, un-dyed Momma!
Oh wait! Look! I did make something! Tim got hippo pants! These are Big Butt Baby Pants by Ray Hoekstra. I whipped them up during a naptime and when John woke up and saw them he thought they were for him. I told him I had some cut out for him (Holiday PJs by Melly Sews) so every time I stood up after that he grabbed my pants and pulled me towards my sewing room. So I gave him his crayons (and then a time out for drawing on the table and not his paper) and made these for him! He was very excited to match his brother. And we’ll just assume Tim was excited too…
Speaking of Tim, he has a hearing appointment in the morning. I know he can hear (because I clapped over his head when he was sleeping one time – hah), the problem is we think he might be hard of hearing. Or else really good at ignoring noises. So think of us tomorrow, please :)
