What Missy Calls Pretty

Remember when I made cookies for Addy?
Well, I got the idea from my friend Missy (her cookies are pictured above). She is a fabulous crafter and a meticulous sewer.
And now you can buy her goods on Etsy. Check her out at Everything she does is incredibly adorable and incredibly well-made. I can say this because I have seen her wares (well, not all of them, but enough of them to know!) in person.
If for nothing else, I'd click over there to read her cute names and witty descriptions. Not only can she create, this girl can write! Congrats Missy! I wish you the greatest success with this new adventure!

Beanbags for Linus

For Linus's birthday, I made him six beanbags. I cut the little monkeys playing musical instruments out of a cute fabric scrap I had, ironed them on with Heat-n-Bond, and zigzag stitched around their edges.
Although I told him he would not like it, Rock insisted on eating one of the dried beans as I was pouring them in. It came in a bag and looked like a jelly bean so he figured clearly it was candy and I was trying to deprive him. After a moment or two in his mouth he decided that he did not like it.

Pajama Party

I'm gonna take on SewMamaSew's Pajama Party challenge! I'm thinking that I'll make some pj's for me that will last through the ninth month of pregnancy, a pair (or two!) of pj pants for Rock, and maybe even something for Fix. I'll let you know how it goes.

This is a couple months old but I forgot that I had taken it.
Someone wrote on the sidewalk in front of our house "I love guys with good hair, pretty eyes, & big B*TTS!" Any comments?
