Back To School

We still have 2 whole weeks until school starts, although my niece and nephews started forever ago. I’m not ready to go back to the routine yet, but my kid is done with summer. Bella is ready to show off those new school clothes!

I didn’t have any time to write last week, and this week is kinda crazy too. I did get to read some blogs and keep up with the sewing world though. Here are some of my favorite projects!

Union Station, Denver Co.

Just got in from our Denver trip; here’s a random camera shot at the Union Station. Isn’t the crown molding pretty? I keep thinking I’ll write about some of the places we saw, but I’m not sure if I’ll get around to it. Lazy blogger problems!

 

Let’s see what everyone was up to last week.

Cinderella Custom Hair Bow

This is a custom Cinderella hair bow I made for one of the cutest babies you’ve ever seen.

We’re leaving Thursday for a quick work trip to Colorado, so I’m running around like a maniac trying to get chores and work responsibilities taken care of. We’ll have Saturday to explore around Denver. Have you been, and is there anything we can’t miss while we’re there?

Let’s see what everyone has been up to.

Welcome to Sew Fashionable: A weekly showcase of my favorite sewing and fashion posts across the blogosphere.

I visited family this weekend. I saw my half-brother and introduced him to my half-sister. (I don’t acknowledge siblings by percentage, but this is for narrative purposes.) Anyhow, my brother brought his half-sister, and it turns out my brothers’ sister lives across the street from my sister. These are the things that happen when your family is out of control huge. I had the best weekend ever, check out the receipts on Instagram!

Let’s see what everyone has been up to.

I’ve got some new prints in fantastic colorways available at My Fabric Designs! We nursed a sick Pygmy goat back to health early this week. Susie’s stomachs had to get used to our pasture.

Yesterday I had so much fun during a pool workout that I forgot it was Monday, this post is a day late! (Thats because “pool workout” is code for beer in the pool with  my friends. )

Here are some of my favorite posts this week.
