I'm a nail biter

I can tell that I am really stressed because my nails are becoming nonexistent.  The house stuff is coming along.  Getting the floorboards polished is going to be a huge endeavour.  It's the one big hurdle that we have.  I'm trying to coordinate a few different things around here to happen.

Anyway, blah, blah, blah.  I have sewn a few things that I want to share.  They are for the Crafty Mamas Congo Cart.  I'm not sure if I am even supposed to be talking about it.  I'll definitely let you know when it launches.

A couple of Imke tops from hand dyed cotton/spandex French terry.  This is the 'old' Imke pattern, not the regraded one in SCKL.  The girl version has Luzia Pimpinella's Peace & Love embroideries.  Enjoy the Love Bus here because I don't think you'll see it again for a while.    The boy version is embellished with Jolijou's Little Devil embroideries.

love the ribbons on the hood, and love the lore outfits! That patterns is fantastic.
And I think the kitchen will be totally worth the wait. Floor boards make a nice background for your photos:)

All so cute!! The strawberry top is my fave though.

And I had no idea that Imke was changed for the book! What's the difference?

Oh, poor fingers. I tear my cuticles when I get stressed. Ouch.
But you must be nearly there if the floors are being done!!

All your sewing is cute, but I also like the strawberry top best. That's such a cute set.
