a small rant.

So I have been working my way through the plague this week and am still really sick... I cannot take it any more!!!!
I am going completely stir crazy and am now a week behind on my gown orders. It is so frustrating being "in charge" of everything, my burgeoning business and my full time job of stay-at-home wife and mother. Luckily my mother is here watching Lily today, but I still feel like death warmed over. Today I plan to sweat it out. I have to get better, there is no other choice... pass me the vics vapo rub and my wool socks... it is time to banish these germs!!!!

So hopefully I will be back in the sewing room soon, I miss it!
Being sick is for the birds!

my latest creations

So I have been busy toiling away in my workroom making hospital gowns and I managed to squeeze in a couple different projects.
Here is my latest set of blocks. I love these so much I am making my daughter a set. I made them for my sister-in-law's friend who loved the set I gave my nephew so much that she needed her own.
This set of 12 has a lot of bang for the buck... one side is a full picture puzzle, they have all 26 letters of the alphabet, the numbers 1-10, and a few of the blocks have words to make short sentences with! The are an adorable heirloom as well as a great handmade learning toy!

I also managed to make up these lovely burp cloths made to match my Gown-2-Go. Worn with the gown or alone, they make a fashionable addition to any caregiver's wardrobe!
