What I've Been Making Lately

Honestly I have been making a lot lately.  I recently left my high intensity job on Michigan Avenue in search of a better work/life balance and to take time to help out with my newborn nephew, Joseph. (I have boatloads of pictures for a more in depth Joseph post in the future.)  For the first time since I was 14 years old I am unemployed in the traditional sense.  I am sewing and designing like crazy - hence to launch of my children's collection Stunning Baby. For the first time since we were married I am able to see Hunky on the weekends - we are no longer like two people sharing an apartment who overlap for 4 hours - on a good day - we are actually a pretty happy and cute little married couple. My state of living has improved dramatically and for the first time in a while I can say that I am truly happy...

 Miss Mocha has been excelling with her new job - Quality Control Manager and Design Assistant!
Actually she is quite good at barking at me if/when I get off task - this girl hates when I take breaks to catch up on my favorite TV shows...

 Here's a sneak peak of what I've been working on lately...

 A certain pretty Momma and her darling daughters will be sporting these in the future...

Hunky and I spent all day Saturday rearranging the apartment.  This is my new cutting station - moved away from our kitchen table!

Our lease is coming due in the fall and we are trying to decide whether we would like to relocate... after a whole day of rearranging - which was pretty much as labor intensive as a move - we may be staying put!

My dear friend Hannah will be having a baby girl any day now!  This is the little outfit that I made to welcome Miss Emma Joy to the world!  I just love this fabric - yellow and gray is such a happy combination.

 I am somewhat of a fabric hoarder - I buy it and then hang on to it until the proper project presents itself.  I have a bit of this floral stripe left over and am half tempted to make myself a little spring skirt or dress.  This week I started to expand sizes over at Stunning Baby and this is my first Trouser and Bloomer set available in 9-12 months and 12-18 months.

Here's to a creative week!
