My baby turned 6 yesterday! Happy Birthday Mollie!
She received from her family a music box, craft supplies and a top for the cooler weather. It's another Jule top, but this one has butterflies and flowers on it. Moo requested butterflies. Excuse the poor photos. I should have used a flash in the shade out front. I am embarrassed at times about my pathetic photography because one, I have a good camera and two, I do actually know a little bit about photography, just a little though!
The awesome spiral hood (I love this feature of Jule!)
Grandma gave Mollie this adorable princess stamp set from Djeco. I think that was Moo's favourite gift.
My apologies for being quiet. If I am quiet, it means I am creating. I am not very good at picking up the camera to do WIP photos. Today was a market at Moo's school, and I've been busily cutting, sewing and dyeing.
I have a stack of silk and flannel blankets.
And last night I stayed up until midnight making this Jule hoodie. It was the first thing I sold today. I was thrilled that it quickly found a new home.

I love it when an idea in my head is translated onto fabric!
March is a busy month. I thought I was free at least one weekend this month, but today I was handed an invitation for a party on that 'free' weekend. And it's a combined party, two girls, so two presents must be made. I have a market on March 14 which I should be sewing for, but really I've been in the mood to do more individual 'art' pieces. If I could just get the ideas out of my head onto fabric, I'd be happy.
So for the party this weekend, we have
And for the following weekend
I am in an Antonia mood again. I've been meaning to list a custom slot on Etsy, but just haven't gotten around to it. If you are interested email me or convo me via Etsy. It goes like this...you get to raid my stash. Pick the body of the shirt, and I will do the rest.
I have a market to prepare for. Dresses need to be cut, so that I can sew and dye, but I just didn't feel like it last night.
I started out by just doing the embroidery onto felt. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Then this morning I decided to cut a backing and bottom out of light blue felt. I blanket stitched and stuffed it with wool. Voila! Little nesting doll.
I am thinking making the whole set. Mollie has requested it, but we'll see how time goes.
I've subscribed to MixTape. Check out what cool subscriber gift I received, the Dutch-Russian Sublime Stitching pattern. I have quite a few Sublime Stitching patterns already, but I don't own this one and I really wanted it! How cool!
