I’ve been in a bit off a crafting funk lately. Mostly, I’m just too tired. The day-to-day tasks required to care for this family of 5 (+1) is more than my pregnant body can handle. I know I need to let things slide, and I do. The only reason the laundry is folded in the picture above is because I have a husband who loves me very much.
We found out we are having a GIRL! All I can say is “Ruffle Butt Onesies“!!!
The best way to get melted crayon out of your dryer is to first heat it with a hair dryer. Oh, and pull it apart so you can get everything out of all the little cracks. sigh.
I made a “Lucy Flower” out of an old men’s dress shirt. It looks cute on this hat, but I am trying to figure out how to wear it as a barrette. I can’t really pull my hair into a bun so I’m at a bit of a loss. (Tutorial found via Delia Creates)
I’ve discovered I’m a twitter addict. I already spend way too much time composing Facebook statuses in my head, but now I have the added excitement of venting my sewing ups and downs with new crafty type peeps. To make matters, a while back U-handbag complimented my Saucy Sack on twitter and then I got a mention on Ana White’s amazing blog (I don’t even care if she mis-wrote my username). yup. I’m hooked. Are you? I’d love to follow you on twitter, too! @sewfearless
I have bought my fabric and have pretty much decided to make Megan Nieslon’s wrap top as my November project.
Christmas presents. I really need to get on those. I have some really fun ideas for nieces and nephews, but I really would love to get them done before advent begins. I’m like two months behind. eep!
It’s a girl! Yippee! Congrats!
🙂 Thank you. It is very fun to have children in this orderly manner. Boy, girl, boy, girl.
Congrats on continuing the boy-girl-boy-girl pattern. Hehehe.
How nice of you to share how to get crayon out of a dryer. Probably not the nicest way to spend an afternoon.
I have to admit it was not nice. There were tears to be sure.

Congrats on the little Beanette! Wonderful 🙂 I hope you feel more energetic soon… but even in your tiredness you are inspiring me with your awesome ideas and little projects (that flower is so great!!). I am also pondering handmade Christmas gifts and getting ancy about the schedule 🙂 Happy weekend!
The flower was really fun! I am proud that it was recycled materials. I’m not very good about doing that. Not like you anyways.
If you were close by, I would invite you over to Christmas craft with me. I hope some people come over tonight and motivate me. 🙂
