I am obsessed with sewing lately! I especially love making tiny little things for Stella. I just got a new sewing machine and serger and barely know how to use them. I am used to my old seventies Kenmore! Luckily they are super easy to use. My friend Lynne is showing me how to sew a canopy and pillows for Stella's new big girl bed... and she is amazing! I will post pictures as soon as it is all done. I can't wait!
It's Monday... The hairdresser holiday! I spent most of the day sewing and Taylor was in the garage building me a new sewing table (he really wanted an excuse to use his new Kreg jig, whatever that is!) So to reward ourselves for such a 'rough' day, we decided to go bowling. Grammy and Grandpa met us there, too! Stella beat me by about 40 points... She is a natural! We rounded out the day with fried chicken at Neal's. A perfect Monday!
My sister and I are on our way to Kansas City for a show, so daddy just texted these pictures to me! Looks like they are having some fun at the bowling alley! The first picture that he sent had the caption, "bowling for kisses". I miss my cuties already!
Miss Stella is starting to get VERY picky about her clothes. Long gone are the days of "baby outfits" and headband bows. She won't wear jeans and she would rather die than wear "ugly" shoes. What can I say... I was (am?) the exact same way! At least she has good taste, right?!?
In the wise words of Dora, "we did it! YAY!" it's finally finished! I am so happy with how it turned out, and I think Stella is pretty proud of it, too! She hardly wanted to take it off. It's a good thing, too... Because I am going to make her wear it until it's a cropped cardigan on her!!! And it's done just in time to wear to her birthday party on Saturday!
Here is Stella in her new Stitch & Bitch tee shirt this morning! She loves it. Is it preschool appropriate? Definitely not! But hey, she's gotta represent her momma's knitting club, right? ;) and... We got a little article in CitiScapes Magazine this month! I am so proud our little group has gotten so much notice! It's nice to have a hobby and get together with other people that like the same thing! Now if only I can get that sweater done before Stella's birthday this Saturday! It's going to be Pinkalicious!!!
We got to the razorback game about an hour early, so we ate, walked around, and called the hogs about a million times. Stella loved the cheerleaders and the lights! She passed out on Mimi the first 30 seconds of the game and slept until the last five minutes! She loved it and I think she will be a "hawg fan" for life!
Dear SW, Thank you for our fun playdate yesterday. I had so much fun playing kitchen, trying on 18 princess nightgowns, eating about 80 fruit snacks, and pulling out every toy you own. I think our mommas had fun drinking that wine stuff that they like, too! Let's do it again soon, and we can come mess up OUR house this time!
I am a young, working momma trying to keep up with my hip, socialite tiny and my handsome,outdoorsman husband. We have a lot of fun playing with Stella, drinking good wine and vegging as much as possible. When I am not wrapped around Stella's little finger, I love hanging with friends, oil painting, knitting, jewelry making, reading, and of course, my job, cutting hair!
