Big pile o'clothes

This totally non-artful and poorly lit picture is what I did with my summer vacation. Or the hour after the baby went to bed. Or something like that. I'm tired again, so I'm kinda blathering right now.

I finished up the handsewing on this little pile of garmets-- all except the button holes on the jacket. I've learned through sad experience not to buttonhole after 9 pm. It never turns out well.

I'm watching a friend's daughter tomorrow (three kids under three? Yikes!) and we are supposedly hitting the park, but I am going to try to convince Camille that she really wants to model for me while I take pictures. Grady is just so not into that (and we discovered this morning when he tried on that hot pink number for me that surprisingly, pink makes him look even more like a boy than before. Odd.) I'm hoping she has big feet, because I have the greatest pair of Satch and Sol boots I want her to wear-- Grady's big, galumphing size 9's. If you don't already get the Satch and Sol mailer, go sign up right now. 20% off for newsletter recepients right now. Our boots are so beautiful I hate for Grady to actually wear them anywhere but for dressup, but they look like they would totally hold up well. But I digress. So tonight-- sleep. Tomorrow-- pictures of children wearing things I've made. I know you're all as excited as I am.

I love Satch and Sol! Elizabeth has a pair of wool slippers from Ireland that she's just outgrown so I need to get her a new pair. Does Grady like to wear his? I'm afraid I'd buy them and he'd refuse to wear them.

Good luck with the 3 under 3. :)

Thank you so much for all of your kind comments on my blog. I love seeing you around there. I finally made it back over here, and can see that I missed a couple of wonderful posts. I love the play dough post... I should have read that before my melt last week. I also can't wait to see more of the clothes! They look BEAUTIFUL! Seriously, when my second was 2 months all I remember is fighting mastitis... not sewing, not gardening, not being an awesome mommy to the first. You are wonderful, and I'm so glad I get to see sweet peeks of your life.
