Projects and Picnics

I've done some of sewing and embroidery recently and I must say that it feels good, albeit a little hectic, with a baby around who tries to put everything in her mouth. And I mean EVERYTHING. Just yesterday I had to fish a plastic wall anchor out of her mouth. Praise God she didn't choke! Here are some of the projects I've been working on:

A bib and burp cloth set for our local MOPS group to give away:

A skirt for my oldest niece's birthday:

A onesie for a friend's little girl, announcing some big news for their family!

Crazy-colors back-to-school skirt for our niece:

I'll be sewing a Kindle case for a birthday gift this weekend, too. I hope it turns out as cute as the one in this tutorial that I'm following!

The reason I was sewing skirts for my nieces is because they got to come to KY for a week to visit us all by themselves! My mom has been looking forward to hosting "Camp Grandma" for a long time, and her dream finally came true! While the girls were here, we had a few picnics at some local parks. The weather was gorgeous for August. Not unbearably hot and humid like usual, but just breezy and warm. After one picnic, we took a short little walk down to Lake Cumberland where the kids enjoyed throwing rocks into the water. A friend's two boys also came along and showed the girls the ropes.

Caitlin (7), couldn't resist the urge to go 'swimming' and jumped in.

Bella (almost 5) and Grandma

Me, Natalie, and Ashley (9)

A beautiful view from the shore!

The week went by so quickly, but we had a lot of fun and look forward to them coming back next summer!

  1. Gosh, I love all your projects, Friend! You really should open an Etsy shop, your projects always turn out so perfect! We still use those bibs that you gave Wyatt and they are my favorites! And sounds like you had a great time with your nieces - how fun!
