Fair Prep

April 27, 2009 at 9:48 pm 3 comments

I’m making stock for the craft fair at a local gem/mineral shop. Space is free so I thought, why not?!

Didn’t have much time today so I only made two things. Both of these have outer shells of Japanese linen. I like the embroidered flower on the teal one! (Speaking of embroidery, I taught LittlestCatHead to do a French knot today and she did it perfectly! She also free-hands embroidery. No pattern for this girl!)

I made the skirt LittlestCatHead is wearing. But I mainly wanted to show you what Raja likes doing most: lying on his Mama.

    Sure! I learned a really easy way to do it in the Sew What Bags book. I can let you borrow it, if you like. I think HipStitch has a copy too. Or I can just show you next time I see you 🙂

Feb2012 ABQ  Guess what I had for lunch today? :)  (This is pre-rooster, lime, and extra basil)

Feb2012 ABQ  Some new sake to try! From dusk to dawn. (Reminds me that I haven't seen that movie in a while...)

Feb2012 ABQ  Arbuckle is not happy.

Feb2012 ABQ  Raja is perplexed that this is Arbuckle's solution.

Feb2012 ABQ  He doesn't know what to make of the inserts.

Feb2012 ABQ  Remember Maru?  Arbuckle wants to be the new Maru.

Feb2012 ABQ  Did you know Bengal boys wear bindi too?

Feb2012 ABQ  This is me trying to cleverly hide the zit on my cheek. This did not work because Soph didn't tell me I wasn't actually covering the zit. Now it looks like I'm drawing your attention to it. ARGH! But hey, we had fun.

Feb2012  ABQ    I hate the way I'm pursing my lips in this but Soph looks so stinkin' cute that I had to post it :)

Feb2012  ABQ    the back. And you can get a good idea of the color. I love it!
