Another boring day. The weather is just terrible at the moment. Muggy and the mere thought of having to stay inside for an entire day just depresses me. I did take the kids shopping to find a school bag for Nicolas. Yes, we found one that he likes, and most importantly one that fits. I had planned on sewing something today, but there are so many beautiful patterns out there, that I had to spend a few hours going through my Ottobre books and fabrics. I am dying to do something with the Heather Ross fabric. It is so lovely, and just perfect for a little girl. I also plan on finishing a few pajama sets. I just need to get started and get motivated. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
One of the first outfits I made for my niece was part of a Burda 9650 pattern.
I loved the pattern, but the fit was way too big.
As you can see a size 68 fits Olivia at the moment, and
she is 2.5 years old.
It definitely is an adorable pattern, and I got lots of
compliments when Olivia wore it.Here are some more inspiring fabrics and tidbits I have gathered during the day. Enjoy.
Michael Miller Orchid Spa Set. Isn't it gorgeous? I cannot wait to see what some people make with this combination. So serene.
Thanks to Lily Haven, I was introduced to Blurb and BookSmart. Two differnt sites. Blurb allows you to print your blog. Although this option was a bit too expensive for me, I decided for $6.95 to download it as a PDF file. Of course, I wanted to print my old Sewpink blog. That blog has so many wonderful pictures and memories for me, that I thought it would be a great keepsake for the kids one day. It may be smart to start a new blog every year, in order to keep the cost down. Booksmart allows you to create a picture book. I love the fact that I could put all of my sewing creations in one book. What a great Christmas idea for someone. Aaaaahhhhh!
