September snuck up on me!

Liams 2nd Birthday will be here in less than two weeks! I won’t be throwing him a party this year but will of course make his day really special. ❤ I’ve ordered him a custom cake from a vegan bakery called MudPie in Westport. It’s the same place I bought his 1st birthday cake. 🙂 (He has a dairy and peanut allergy so that is why it is vegan.) They are so friendly and helpful. Their coffee and baked goods are great too!  http://www.mudpiebakery.com/#  Definitely check them out if you’re ever down in that area!!

A couple of weeks back I made him this shirt that ended up looking like a scrub top lol so I did not post it. I really hope to make more boys clothing the next few months because I NEVER do! I haven’t had any time to make him an outfit or ANY gifts this year *boo hoo!!* :(( but here is his outfit from last year:liam1st

 At the end of the month I will be a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding and Sophia will be one of the flower girls so we’ll have to travel out of town for that. We can’t wait 🙂 But all of these preparations plus sewing for work leave little to zero time for pleasure sewing. I will be around but probably not with any new creations (even though I have about a million things I would love to make!!)  I have also been thinking a lot lately about what I would like to do long term for my career, what my goals are. I have been looking into schools in the area and trying to make decisions regarding that.

(If you were wondering about the top I was testing for Amelie & Henri, Kerri has put it on hold because we ran into some bumps and women’s patterns are just naturally harder to draft. Everyones bodies are so different. I hope to be able to finish that soon and share because I am really happy with it so far) 

 

Here are some pictures from my babies FIRST Birthday!! We had such a fun day. It was circus themed. I had little popcorn boxes for the self serve candy bar and cotton candy in glasses. Mason jar glasses with paper straws topped with mustaches. I borrowed two bouncy houses also and the kids loved them!
