I really like doing custom orders. It’s fun for me to give people a chance to pick out and create something that they feel really comes from them, not the department store. And this one was extra special for me because it was to be a gift for my niece Katie.
She and her husband Victor are having their first baby! Yes it’s a boy.
My sister-in-law asked me to make a gift for them and I thought of this Dick and Jane fabric right off. It reminds me of her and seems like something from her own childhood that she would want to pass on to our new baby nephew.
The blanket is soft flannel with vintage chenille and the tie fabric is perfect! Doesn’t that plaid just rock it as a tie :D I am also working on another special order that I will be done with tomorrow. I’ll show you that one too if you like!
And with this sewing project done and posted it means that I have completed my Sew 5 Challenge! Thanks Creative Maven for keeping me busy and on task!
This is a story about my 8 year old boy… He is cuckoo!
“When can I get a phone?” him
“When you’re 20! You don’t need a phone!” me
“What if I get lost and stuck in a tree?” him
“Don’t wander off by yourself.” me
“Or if I get lost in the jungle and had to live with a homeless person?” him
When he said that I had to write it all down, while driving in the car. Just to share it with you! I love my boy and his fantastic imagination. His powers of persuasion though, needs a little work.
This is Scout our Jack Russell Terrier. Isn’t he cute! All short-legged, you should see him jump! We have had him for a week today. It’s our 1 week anniversary with him. And yes I am in love!
He is 5 years old. And very well-trained. He hardly ever barks (and when he does bark, it is not annoying at all!) sleeps in his crate, and is generally very low key for his breed. He is our dream dog come true!
Welcome to your new home Scout!
I am a little brain dead these days. I need some R&R.

So last night I stayed off my computer. But today I was on, looking through my list of blog friends.

It is just what I needed. A little brain juice.
a quilt to make, from film in the fridge
And a long phone call from my sister never hurts either!

So here are some pic’s that got my brain working again! I hope they inspire you a little too.

Is a promise. And here is one of mine being fulfilled.
Meet Charlie. The wayward dog that I got to take care of for the day. Her named turned out to be Magnolia.
I knew that you couldn’t wait another day without seeing a picture of her. Sleep well my friends, sleep well.
