leg warmies wip. i need some easy projects to work on in the parent lounge while Little A is in Kindergarten. it was fun today with some other mamas. the knitting is pretty straight forward;

wouldn’t you know it – purple and teal again!

KCWC day 2

oh so many ideas;

getting some ideas



but really now. i had these scooter cords in the pile for a long while…i finished them late last night and put them by Little A’s bed to put on in the AM. His first reaction and in a very whiny, disappointed voice; “black is not my color!”


i told him to try them out for the day to see how cozy they felt (the corduroy is really soft) and if he didn’t like them that he wouldn’t have to wear them again ever. by the end of the day they were cool enough to keep;

creative community,sewing | Sunday, September 19th, 2010

i guess i’m pretty excited about Elsie Marley’s  kid’s clothes week challenge. i already had some projects in the sewing pile so along with finishing those up i hope to get started on a few new ones this upcoming week.

i’ve had this awesome hemp jersey knit for 5 years! i FINALLY hand stitched some little shirts in the rough handmade style i intended. MollyBirds was made in the summer, worn and washed often;


the long sleeve green hemp jersey was finished while little A was in Kindergarten and while little M slept. i love hand stitching and i love quick projects that i can work on while we’re out and about.

the scooter was finished off early this morning. (i couldn’t stop kissing these sweet cheeks all day).

looking forward to a week of handmade goodness for both my boys…
