A Day in May

I love these poppies.  I just got in some alligator clips so I could use them for hair clips.  I love the look of flowers in swept up hair.  It's so romantic.

I've recently discovered making your own buttons.  It's a lot of fun and I found myself just making some flowers so I could make some buttons to match.  I can always use the flowers since I send them out with every order I sell on Etsy.  I'll continue to do it for as long as I can but I really enjoy making them and I've got a pretty good stock of them ready to go.  It's good mindless work to do while watching evening tv and winding down at the end of the day, plus it uses up a few of my little scraps.

New Weight Watchers 3 month Journal and Pocket Guide covers are in the works.  I can't seem to get a good stock of these build up.  Not enough time sewing and it seems every time I get one listed one sells.  Certainly not complaining about that.  

It was a birthday weekend!  So much fun with the kids now!  This is a gift from her uncle.  A fun idea but the only place for it is in the middle of my kitchen.  This actually looks smaller on camera.  It's a nice 5ft x 5ft.  Thankfully it's not the best of quality so hopefully it won't be too long lived.  

This was a 4th birthday.  An absolute gorgeous day, a welcome change from 3 previous birthdays of rain.  With every day that passes I think this is the best stage.  She's always doing something to surprise and amaze me but I guess that's all kids.  While I was busy sewing one day she was quietly taking some pieces I just cut out and pulling them through wristlet swivel clips laying nearby.  I just have to shake my head and chuckle.
