Well it's officially Monday morning here (just barely) and we had a somewhat productive weekend I guess. I woke up to this cute scene on the breakfast table so I had to take a picture. If you look close you can see a bug flying by the chimney at the moment I snapped this (weird). I love that lime green table runner (Paula's Flights of Fancy line) because it looks great with everything.
Had a chance to sew something for a little friend who recently had a birthday (I made this little skirt for her sister so I knew I had to come up with something similar). I've been wanting to play with the Whimsy fabric since it arrived because I just love it! I'm hoping to dig into the blue colorway some time this week. And I'm going to get some more skirt kits in the store since I've kind of slacked off in that department. It's been awhile since I've made one of these Evelyn Apron skirts and I'd forgotten how fast it is to sew (this whole outfit went together in 1.5 hours once I had everything cut out).
And I had a chance to water my 3 youngest sprouts. Our garden is kind of petering out with the heat but the sunflowers (in the foreground) are doing great. The squash (on the left) is producing tons of flowers but no squash. A bunch of seeds never even sprouted (and they weren't cheap!) We'll just call this our practice run and really get it going when things cool down in a couple of months.
And I received some great news from my Westminster rep this week! They are reprinting Amy Butler's Lotus Dots (and some other Lotus prints) in all the popular colors (the lime too, of course!!!) and those will be available in November. See! It pays to speak up (so keep doing it)!
I bought some more spray paint today and will be working on another project this week (with the help of my handy dandy spray paint guy!). This one's kind of a biggie but it's going to be great (sewing and spray painting together in one fantastic event).
And I want to thank everyone who gave me such great ideas for the sewing class I'll be teaching. It was SO helpful! Really! I'll let you all know when I've got everything sort of figured out (I'm sure I'll be asking for more help). Oh, and if anyone wants to try some great fabrics for your boys, Oh Boy! and Be A Man are on sale (15% off through July 26th). Dena Fishbein's Christmas collection too. Have a great week! Be sure to sew something!
