The Week’s Wrap Up

This week has gone by like a blurr. Taylor competed in 2 (the third was rained out) golf tournaments and pitched in a softball game (and also hurt herself) sliding into home), Easton decided he no longer wanted to nap during the day (which makes for a very grumpy boy in the evenings), Bret was home all week (yay, no traveling), and I managed to sew up 4 projects!
I also got lots of wonderful goodies in the mail – my Burda World of Fashion finally arrived (and I’ve found several things I wouldn’t mind sewing up), my Hot Patterns order came in, a fun prize that I won from Rockin Smockin (photo posted here, plus some fun baseball buttons for Easton and a pretty Christmas ornament kit for Taylor – thank you so much Blakely!), and lastly, my Little Stitches book was delivered. And look what’s on the back:

A quote from me!!! I probably don’t have to tell you how excited I was to see it, not to mention the fact I was very honored to be asked to write something in support of one my favorite sewing authors. As for the book – it’s fantastic! I’m so happy that I have a little one to sew for because there are so many wonderful things to create…. In fact, I’m torn what to make first – a new diaper bag? a military hat? the cute monkey laundry bag? a travel bib?
I sifted through some patterns in my stash and came up with a few that I wanted to put up for sale (I’m sure that there will be more to come, my patterns are overflowing). the first is for Kwik Sew 2653 and the other is for 6 patterns for doll clothes and accessories:

Both appear on Pattern Review’s Classifieds, but if you’re interested, please let me know.
Lastly, I’m deciding on what I need to sew up next. I’m leaning toward Jalie 2565 – I need to sew this one up before the weather turns cold!

    Oh my goodness, is that Easton?!?! I can’t believe how big he has gotten! He sure doesn’t look like a grumpy boy… He looks adorable and like a future heart-breaker! 🙂

    Gosh Easton is growing fast…this way he will catch up with Bret and Taylor’s golf tournament pretty soon!
    I could see a ton of uses for that Jalie pattern..even during the winter time. I dislike using sleeves under the sweaters…

    Congrats on the shout out on the new Butler book! That is very exciting to a book nerd like me! I will be anxious for your full review.

    The kids look so great! Taylor looks right at home in her golf gear. What a trooper. I heard the other day that one of the younger, pro women golfers shot a 60!! I don’t golf but that is amazing.
    Note to Easton: Babies NAP! That is what they do. Read the handbook. Give your mom a break. You will be amazed at what a fun mom you have when she gets to sew a little more!

    OMGosh, that is so exciting about your quote for Amy’s book – yippee!!! And look at Easton, he’s so big! Hope Taylor is feeling better, poor girl getting hurt.

    OMG – aren’t Taylor and Easton cute! I agree with Bernadette’s note to Easton : you are not allowed to quit napping until you are 3. Not 3 months, 3 years!
    I can’t believe your quote is on the book!! Awesome!! It will cool to see what you come you come up with. I haven’t seen the book – alas, no babies to sew for here…

    OMG, Easton is HUGE already!! He’s so cute!!
    I finally had Aiden!! I’m going to take some pics of him rocking his Stacy Sews fashions and goodies for you!
