I think I need to branch out and try something new. Maybe a drawing a day or something. Here is my start. I love housetop and log cabin and bricklayer quilts--all the building block types. I don't think I am going to sew these--they are just explorations.
On our bike ride to school today we got so many hellos. One guy shouted from his car, "Hey Little Man!" Finn kept saying, "that's such a nice thing to say, little man," and I agree. I am slowly graduating from little easy leggings for finn to pants with pockets, bowties and vests. Here is my latest fashion plate. The fabric is from Modern Domestic in Portland. The vest pattern is a modified version of a free pdf from Mother Huddle and the knickers are my own design.
It's been a while since I checked in here. I have gotten terribly lazy and mostly just post to instagram these days! But, alas, I have a project I'd like to share. I made a new dress from a vintage pattern and am quite excited about it! The fabric is Everyday Organic Solids from Clothworks, where I work.
Tyler took this photo of Finn recently and it encapsulates the phase he is in so well. Eyes wide open, alert, excited, ready to learn,playful, full of energy and FUN! Finn is so darling and I love him so much. What a special kid. And, look at what a bad mo-fo he is on the drums. That's rad! Happy Christmas and New Year Finners.
