a maiden hair fern

just precious. nicely done. Do you have a surger?


(A) I love the little newborn clothes! I've got a newborn boy arriving in about 11 days, and while there seems to be loads of teeny tiny clothes, I fear I won't have enough. :) I've never braved knits, though, so I'm a bit intimidated to try to make him something. What you've made looks incredible, though! Sweet Auntie!

(B) I think we all get lazy. My 2 are littler (3 and 1), but I yell from across the room, too. I do believe, though, that kids want structure and limits and ways to succeed, and I think by putting in a chore chart and letting them know your expectations and the consequences, that they will rise to the occasion and will enjoy it so much more. And so will you. :)

Don't look back on the kind of parent you were and didn't like, look ahead to becoming the kind of parent you want to be. I think you're on the right track. :)


i feel for you. i had an interesting parenting week as well. the responsibility of it all is just so constant, isn't it? we reinstituted a chore chart again here this week, and it has helped. good luck with staying on top of things. :)

your newborn clothes are ADORABLE!!!

thanks for linking up to finish it up Friday!


wow, you had a big day !!


Darling clothes! What is the pattern used and where did you find the nice selection of fabrics? Are those knits? I used to sew a lot of knits years ago, but now have trouble finding cute prints.
