king for a day

Liam asked me to make a "king hat" for him. I did the best with what I had. He sorta looks like the Witch King of Angmar now. He also requested a super hero cape. I'm going to attempt something like this. The pose in the picture is a sleeping king, in case you were wondering.

i heart the internets

Dare I?! Three posts within an hour!!

I just wanted to share some things I've found on the tubes. First, I love this idea that Jesus' favorite, aka Annie, has come up with. I found her blog via Wil Wheaton's blog. I've been trying to keep up with being grateful, but some days I just can't get to the computer.

I am also going to attempt to send a shirt to African Kelli. I wanted to do a care package last year and never got around to it. I'm going to send a shirt this year dag nabbit!

back to sewing

I've finally gotten back to sewing! I made a dress for Matilda and one for a friend who is going to have a baby soon. I'll try to remember to get a picture of Matilda wearing hers.

My mother-in-law was awesome enough to get me a gift certificate to my favorite online fabric store. So I ordered plenty of fabric to get my summer wardrobe going. I can't wait to get started. Of course with the time I have, I probably won't finish everything until the fall.

I've also decided to basically give up on my etsy store. I just don't have the time or energy to make or market anything. I think I'll just stick to sewing for gifts and for myself (which is rare). Oh well...maybe someone out there will buy the rest of the aprons and handwarmers.

one month

For Jason: Sorry I haven't posted in a while! hehe

For everyone else (which means my in-laws):

The display on my poor laptop broke! I'm much too lazy to go all the way down to the basement to use Jason's computer hence the lack of posting. Now all the kids are asleep, and I finally have time to upload some pics and make a post. Yay. *I just looked at some of the pictures that are uploading, and about sixty of them are Liam's face. That's what happens when you let a three year old play with your camera.*

So, you can tell what I've been doing from the above picture. Matilda Mae arrived on March 24th. She was 7lbs 7oz and 19in long. Tiny compared to my other two chunkers. She is an absolute doll! The good thing about being the third kid is that she definitely gets plenty of kisses throughout the day. I'm so glad she picked us to be her family!
