Made up a new stencil the other day:
**Update: these stencils are of the freezer-paper variety; for a good tutorial go here**
I bought this tea outfit a few months ago but the shirt looked so…blah. Had to spruce it up.
Can you tell it’s a dog? Mr. Rae says it kinda looks like a rat. Not that it really matters, but Elliot is a huge dog fan (from a distance, of course), so I was going more in the canine direction. The idea actually came from this picture from Print and Pattern back in May.
Phew! Our weekends away have finally ended. We spent a few days at a cottage on Lake Huron, a few days in Chicago (without baby!) , a few days camping with my mom’s side of the family, and last week my parents stayed with us before we drove to West Michigan for my Grandma ‘s 90th birthday party. It’s great to settle in again.
Mom lives in Seattle so I gave her her birthday gift when she came to visit:
This pretty print is no longer available as far as I know. I had it around for years just waiting for the right project. Turns out mom has a pair of pants that matches exactly so I guess I nailed the color choice. Those pants…
(Grown locally, i.e. NOT sprayed with preservatives and shipped across the globe)
Man I had no idea that over three hundred people even read this blog, not to mention would bother to vote. But there it is, 300 of you and counting (wait a second…Mom? Is that you voting over and over just to boost my self-confidence?) have put in your two cents. Or it could be those devilish “automated robots” out there. And yes, that was a dig at typepad…who ever heard of a non-automated robot? Dum-dums.
Thanks y’all for the wonderful comments! It’s really exciting to hear how many of you have been inspired to make…
Which means it’s time for a poll. Cast your vote on the sidebar to the left. Note: they are listed in the order pictured, starting at the top left.
