Random Bits & Pieces of My Week

Little Man turned 8 this week!

Once a chubby, gregarious baby...

                  now a beautiful, smart, funny Little Man as well as being a major pain in the butt 


A birthday gift for my daughter's friend...

An apron using a tutorial at Skip to my Lou
& a child size oven mitt.  The flower that is attached to the apron can be found here along with the tute.
The oven mitt pattern I just made up myself by snagging my 4-year old, slapping her hand down on a piece of paper & tracing.
The oven mitt came out a bit wonky along the cuff. I was rushing to get the gift made &  I didn't have any double fold bias tape or blanket binding on hand so I used satin ribbon that I did have on hand.  Anyways, the ribbon wasn't quite wide enough & all I can say is, "GRRRRRRRRR!"
Oh, well.  I'll make the little girl another mitt and make the bias tape when there is time to spare.

Lots of sunshine=fun outside!


our very weird kitten, Hamilton aka Hammi.
If something belongs to the baby, he seems to think it belongs to him...such as the highchair.  I have to hide the car seat from this "Ding Dong"(a nickname Sweet Little L likes to call him).

Happy Weekend!
