Lazy Summer...

Ok, so, even though you haven't heard from me in a while, I have STILL be creating a lot of items. I've also done a lot of creating just for myself (is that ok?). I think, "what's the point of creating things, if you only get seconds?". All that to say, I made a load of shirts and onesies for Sparrow Clothing, and they turned out quite well, thank you very much. Here are a few samples. We'll call this "Show and Tell".

My favorite tree shirt - size 3T

Next up, a sweet onesie, with vintage fabric embellishment - size 6mo.

Oh, and I've been creating these MiniZips... I procured a large stock of zippers, both vintage and new, and wanted desperately to make a small pouch to incorporate these, this is what I came up with.

Then I decided after making about 20 of those, that I would make something for myself - here's an early pic of my first ever handknit sock!

The first sock, does make your brain hurt a bit, but the second one was seriously autopilot, it knit up so quick and easy, didn't even have to look at the pattern for the toe or the heel! So there!

This vintage sheet has been calling my name for months. I made a little sundress for a friends newborn earlier in the spring, but I have been wanting to do something with it for myself too - here's my first skirt.

Oh yes, there is a zipper in that too! :)

So, no, I haven't been blogging much, but I have been creating a lot. Our Etsy group has been frequenting the Nampa Farmer's Market each week, with a new vendor, and that's been really fun to organize, as well as getting to know some other local Etsy-ers. They are a great resource for creative thinking and great instant friends! Please check out their blogs too :

I love that tree shirt. Make another, preferably in a size 12-18 months :)

Love the sock, but you already know that.

Also, the skirt looks fabulous on you.

Lastly, thanks for linking to me :)
