Skirt and Tee

I realized when I was uploading these pics they are all skirts and tee shirts! Didn't even realize I had been doing that :).

A boatneck tee (on little i) from ottobre 1/09 the neck was odd and fiddly, but ended fine.

Corny (ahahahaha, yes dad that is for you!) tees for the boys. Such a fun print and very appropriate for our location: middle of nowhere Kansas.

Ooga booga tee for little i, this is another one of those I can't believe I can buy this fabric reprint!

Barcelona skirt, the flowers are embroidered, so this was a must line skirt.

Another barcelona skirt with the apron overlay and a yellow ruffle tee to match.

The reverse of the apron overlay. I've been planning this skirt for almost 2 years! I am so glad I finally sewed it up :D

We had a suprise snow storm the end of March. Just when everyone was ready to plant seeds and get the gardens going. I was so irate that I couldn't work on the garden, I sat down and knit some thick warm house socks. Worsted weight knits so fast for socks! Anyway I had this great orange superwash (mission falls 1824 wool) in my stash that I had planned to make babylegs but the boys said, no don't want any. :P

They are a little loose round the ankle but that's perfect for around the house.

After the snow was all done we went out and played for a bit.

My sad attempt at a snowman.

Look snow!

Maybe next week I can plant my garden...

Birthday Sewing!

Hurrah! It's my baby's birthday, baby n turned 2 yesterday, (holy smokes 2!! how did that happen?) so what's a sewing mama to do but make a few fun birthday treats.

The outfit. Baby n is currently obsessed with dogs, so a doggie shirt it is with coordinating linen pants appliqued with a dog.

The whole birthday ensemble. The cape is from ottobre 4/04, it's a cotton pique that was unfortunately stained in the prewash by some bleeding fabric. I felt very clever making up the crown all by my lonesome; it reverses to a robot print (we had a robot party) for wearing later, fits his head prefect, and I totally had a pattern I could have used. doh. Oops, oh well, now I know for little i's birthday next month.

Enjoying a new birthday toy.

Ready to blow out the candles on the orange robot cake. Yes, yes there are more then two candles on the cake and the decorations are all squished, but that is what happens when the kids help. :)

I've been thinking that since baby n is 2 he kinda needs a new blog name, as he really isn't so baby anymore (at least that is what he tells me). I've been racking my brains for a new name, and had been coming up with zilch (don't ask how long it took me to come up with the blog name, it's embarrassing). Yesterday the coffee guy comments that baby n looked like the kid from the where the wild things are, sure enough he did and moreso, he acts like the kid from the book, so there it is baby n is now wild thing. :)

I've got more projects to post so look for another post later today or tomorrow!
