Sew Mama Sew!

I have been sewing a lot lately. I think it has to do with the trying not to bake. Since I'm not going to be pregnant I've got to get ready for swimsuit season! Anyways I've got some pictures of all the things that I have made but I'm not technologically capable of downloading them. And why should I when I have Darin. But I have done some really fun things and have so many projects that I want to do its ridiculous. I have made a crochet hook roll for mother in law, a purse (with a mini me one for Ivy), some blankets, a table runner and an apron. I've been loving looking at recipe blogs but right now I'm loving sewing blogs. Well I saw the cutest spring sewing project and it shot straight to the top of my to do list. These eggs are so cute and I'm a sucker for a quick and easy project. So go to Retro Mama and check out this super cute tutorial on fabric Easter eggs. I'll try em out and post some pictures with all my other projects.

Besides sewing I have just been running around feeding Ivy. She has a huge appetite lately and I just can't figure out where all of that food goes. She is a serious fruititarian which is not a bad thing. The other day she passed on the candy Aunt Laney was passing out for the grapes. I made rice krispy treats with craisins and dried cherries in them and she ate out all the fruit! I love it that I have to worry about her eating too much fruit in a day. She is talking more and more and has an intense love of being outside. Its a fight all day when its too cold. I just keep hoping that the sunshine will make more than a one day a week appearance.

Darin is keeping busy at Greenies cuz Greenies is keeping busy. Business has really picked up this month. We have sold 15 bikes and there are 2 more business days left! He is also going to be a tv star. This monday he is doing a segment on the bikes and on the kayaks for the local news. He keeps trying to convince me that I should do it but there is no way. Besides I'm not fully operational at 5am. So thats what has been going on out at Goose Gap. Not much but we are happy!

That's awesome that you love to sew. I think I'll put some of my sewing projects on my blog. Good idea! I have two boys and a little girl about the age of yours and I agree...sunshine, where are you! So, we bought irrigation boots, raincoats and umbrellas so they can go out when it is drizzling. I don't let them go out when it is the big, fat, stinging rain. Check out our blog at

Sounds like a great time! :-) You should do the segment -bet sales would go through the roof. ;-)

I can't wait to see some pictures of your projects!!! You're lucky Ivy likes to eat fruit, all Carson wants to eat is Cheese!
