In a slump...

It seems time has gotten away from me more and more lately. I haven't done much sewing or crafting the last couple of weeks. I did get a few applique baby bodysuits done and listed. I have one more done but have yet to get the pictures taken to list it. :/

Little Bit's last day of preschool was May 23rd; family came up for Memorial Day weekend; Little Bit started swim lessons May 28th; Dentist appt for Little Bit; new puppy who needs to be bottle feed every 4 hours.....the list could go on. I have been tired. Little Bit is going to go back to preschool 2 days a week starting June 11th and I hope to sew on those days but who really knows. I have gotten a couple of custom orders for weighted blankets this week so when the fabric arrives, I will have to set aside some time to work on them. Probably after she has gone to bed as she doesn't like me to sew when she is awake and Hubs gets home around 6pm.

I am sorry I am a bad blogger but it is hard to find time to sit and type. Currently Little Bit is playing right beside me but normally, if I sit, she wants in my lap. She is 5 years old and over 43" tall, so trying to type with her playing in my lap would be a mess.

I hope to get better with this, I really do.

It is Official...

Little Bit had her kindergarten evaluation today. It went fairly well. Not a lot of feedback other than she had trouble focusing but she did answer most of the questions correctly. We are to get a call by August from her teacher, once they assign classes. Sniff!

Also today, I listed 2 new baby bodysuits. These designs can be put on any size baby bodysuit or Toddler shirt so just convo me if you need a different size.

Dresser Makeover!

So I wanted a new dresser that I could use for storage of my fabric and vinyl, as well as use it to iron on. I asked around, looked on Craigslist, etc. My cousin texted me one day and asked if I found one yet. I said no. Her father in law had one that he was going to sell. It was the perfect size! But really, REALLY dirty. But it was $40. So my dad brought it up here for me when he came for Little Bit's birthday party. And since she is visiting them this weekend, I tackled the dresser. I had cleaned it up a few days ago so all I had to do was paint. It took about 4 coats but I LOVE IT!

Here are some progress pictures:

This is it at my cousin's father in law's house
Home and dusted off

Debating on a color

Chose Valspar - Top Banana

1st coat is on!
After soaking in Vinegar for a couple of days, and a good scrubbing, the knobs were ready for painting. I used Valspar Spray Paint, White

Another coat (not sure if this was 2 or 3)
And here she is! She is not perfect but that adds to the charm of her.

Fabric appliques

So the real reason I wanted the Silhouette Portrait was the ability to cut shapes out of fabric. I kinda got side tracked with the vinyl aspect but I am back to fabric! I have made 4 baby bodysuits over the last couple of days. Here they are, all are listed in my shop for $15 plus shipping. If you need a different size or want a different shape, let me know!
