Ravelry and our Hand Knit Princess

Princess, you say? Well, Elaine is certainly our little princess :-)

A few things that I love about Ravelry... I have met some really awesome people around the world whom I keep in contact with on a regular basis! And you can pretty much always find really great deals on yarn... So, as I found a great deal on some yarn the other day - my friend from afar also enclosed this darling little dress in the package for Miss Elaine! As soon as it arrived I gave Miss Elaine a bath and dressed her in the hand knit garment. Fitting because we are supposed to have company tonight and I thought she should dress up a bit!

Elaine has been babbling ever since I put the dress on her - I am pretty sure she is telling me how much she loves it - and that she would like for me to make her a few more :-)

Thank you, Janet, we LOVE the dress!!! So special that you would send that for Miss Elaine!

Let Sewing Resume!

Three months later and I feel like we are finally starting to find our flow around here!

I feel like my little bean is growing up way too fast!! The nap times are becoming more regular so I have actually started sewing again! I believe I added 10 new bags to the shop this week (I have not added 10 new items in at least 6 months!) And I have started taking custom orders again!

Staying home is AWESOME and certainly one of the best decisions I have made to date. I thank everyone for their kind words and encouragement regarding this decision!

Once I have restocked existing items I plan to add some new, larger bags to the shop. Certainly I can have this done by October...

The Baptism of Elaine Grace

Mk 10:13-16

And people were bringing children to him that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." ... Then he embraced them and blessed them, placing his hands on them.
