Tyler asked me a while back if I ever just sew freestyle--kind of like how a skateboarder just responds to what comes as they cruise down the road. I said no. But today I decided to try a little more freestyle and used up some scraps and swatches that I got at the fabric store yesterday. MC Escher look out!!
My mom's got an old skool book called, "Eggs Cookbook". The recipe was a smash! And the CSA paid off with a whole bunch of unique radishes for garnish. I felt like a food artist making these. Happy Easter! And thanks to Ryann for posing with these critters.
I did complete the chalkboard and Annie drank her first cup this week! Hot diggity. Now, that chalkboard looks like I whipped it out in 20 minutes. That is the beauty of good art. It looks effortless. I wish I had more photos to post of the interior, but on the other hand, if you just google "Bluebeard Coffee" you will find sufficient hype. It seems that keeping people waiting is a really good way to generate conversation. Go Annie and Kevin!
Here are the details:

I'm taking all of Finn's old, cute socks and I'm gonna sew them to a little sleeve of fabric, slide in some cardboard to make it hard and then he can store his matchbox cars in the little sockies!!!! I'll keep you posted here on the progress of that idea.
one us a simple, raglan sleeve top that only took 2 hours to make. The
fabric comes from a Longview, WA thrift purchase--Polo dress that I
thought might get some wear. Finn liked the shirt so much, he didnt
want to take it off. Next up, simple pants and a biker hat. Getting
Finn outfitted for easter!
