Nursing cover

LOVE this fabric (I think I say that about 99% of the projects I do for others...people have such great tastes!) Made this for a friend. Note the adjustable neck strap, the boning in the neck to allow mom to peek in at baby, and the terry cloth pocket in the lower corner to stash a burp cloth or wipe a mouth! These nursing covers are a great size for laying on the ground for baby to roll around or to throw over a car seat to keep out germs, weather, etc.

Getting ready for snow

Inspired by how much my boy loved his hat and cheek/neckwarmer combo last year, I just hat to make more before winter sets in! Children's hats are my new favorite. This hat/neck warmer combo is a favorite at our house. We love the book/movie that inspired this adorable orange creature, and was a starting point for many other hats and combos (pictures of those to come soon). I welcome custom requests and ideas for your little person!

Pumpkin Patch 2012

These pics were taken about 1/2 way through the day on the first day, so already a lot of stuff picked over! I am still in awe about Pumpkin Patch and what an amazing weekend it was...the weather was perfect, the sales were great, the friends and family helping me out made the days so much better...all the vendors I spoke with agreed it was an exceptional weekend!

The displays were an added bonus this year. I borrowed them from my in-laws who own a mercantile. Meant for DVDs, they were great for showcasing the 120+ reusable sandwich bags (which sold out) as well as the embroidered onesies and infant beanies. The taller displays in the back were perfect for tablet/e-reader clutches and the children's hats.

Thanks to all who came out and helped, shopped, and enjoyed the weekend!
