More Cherries for a Custom Order

Isn't that the cutest set???
I was playing around with the booties and made matching bows for the tops and stitched them down tight. Thought that made the cherries on the soles pop.
My friend had the set made for a co-worker who was just approved the adoption of a preemie baby girl!
So, we're getting closer to finding out what we're having!!! On next Tuesday we should know the sex of our little bean. I can't wait. Feels like the month and a week has dragged on and We had a slow weekend around here. But, I got lots of cleaning done this morning. Now that's super exciting. I'm about to start working on another bag. Hmmm...what should I design this time???

It feels like Fall here already or at least it did this weekend. Although, it's going back up into the upper 80s this week. I went and bought some pumpkin puree to make a loaf of pumpkin bread. Yummy! I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie. Texture thing. But, I like the taste of it in sweets. My friend made these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies last year and they were so yummy. That's when I realized I do actually like

I have a feeling a baking spree will be coming soon. Since I found another recipe for soft oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Since I have been pregnant I can't pass the bakery section of the grocery store without buying something. Explains why I'm finally starting to gain some weight. Lately it's been cinnamon rolls with a ton of cream cheese frosting smothered all over them. Probably not the best choice. But, they're so good and I just have to pop them in the microwave to get them gooey ;) After all that talk maybe I need some lunch. Have a great week!

Cherry, Cherry Bib - The latest

Don't you just love cherries?
I just finished this bib up last night. Thought it turned out rather cute ;) Reminds me of the fabric on the clothes the Cabbage Patch Kids would have came in. That little puff flower I spent a bunch of time on. But, it looks so cute. I was going to do two little puffs with a stem. But, figured that would be cherry overload.
I thought it looked cute next to the Red Riding Hood Diaper Bag.
It's in my shop now. Move fast because that last two were swiped up within a day. Only $10!!

I did some minor fabric shopping this past weekend. Got to love a Labor Day fabric sale! Got some new fabrics that I am looking forward to creating new items with. I was in a vintage mood. So, that will be seen in some of the new items. Can you believe Christmas is less than 4 months away??? I just realized that what I listed on etsy today. Better get myself off the computer and onto the sewing machine.

Still counting down till I find out the sex of the baby. I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow. I am eager to design a diaper bag specifically for me. It's been so long since I had a little baby to carry stuff around for. But, the bag has to be able to cater to my sons needs too. He's only 3 1/2. But, he needs the usuals. Drink, fruit snacks, and a toy. Just need to find out what I'm having so I can pick the fabric and start drafting the design. I don't like a huge bag to carry around. Can't believe my first diaper bag I picked out was an overnighter! I figured the bigger the better...right...oh so wrong! Only used it for trips. Live you learn. I'll be sure to post my bag for the mom of 2 when it's done.
