keeping cool, nesting, and cleaning out...

I'm into my 23rd week of this pregnancy, I'm feeling great and itching to get things done around here. I'm starting to nest.  Arizona summer is rearing it's ugly head though.  It's hot.  Very hot.  Even with the AC going.  Our lovely skylights and high windows in the living room that give such an open feeling to the house also let way too much heat into some rooms.  I found that the sewing room is the coolest room in the house.

I have a BIG stash of fabric I've been wanting to clean out.  So I made up some taggy blankets and bibs.

*Taggy blankets just like my little ones love to snuggle with.  Just the right size for bringing along everywhere they go.

*Christmas bibs were fun to put together in the heat of summer.  Dreaming of cooler days.


My husband purchased an embroidery machine for me this past winter.  I'm finally getting around to learning to use it and enjoying playing with it.

*I just loved finding this design.  Just perfect for new babies!  I'm looking forward to playing with more designs in the coming weeks.
With the used curriculum fair (for our area) coming up last week-end I thought I'd try to work it all to my advantage.  I enjoyed the cool time in my sewing room using up fabrics and ribbons I already had while playing with my new machine as well.  The result was the above products that I was able to sell at the fair!  What fun.

Miss E joined me in the sewing room quite a bit.  She was busy working on these bunnies and also sold some at the fair.  It was great having her along with me, and fun to test out the prospect of crafting and selling.

*I still have some of all of these left (or will be making more).  If you are interested in purchasing any comment here or e-mail me at gabe @ gabesbabes (dot) com
