I have been finding some great inspiration all over the internet lately, thought I would share some with y'all : )
First off, Jona has officiallly opened her Fabritopia online fabric and pattern shop! I just received my first order from her, she was SOOOO helpful and you just can't beat great customer service : ) Plus, she seems to carry all of the fabrics that I love! Go check it out!
I really love the Oliver + S patterns from Liesl over at disdressed. I own 2 of the patterns and plan on collecting the others. I have made this one, and it came out great! Well, she is coming out with a fall line of patterns, and they are SO cute! She even has 2 patterns for boys. I always have trouble finding cute patterns for fall and winter, and now I have several to choose from! Samuel is going to be so excited that mama has some patterns to make just for him : ) Oh, and FYI, Jona carries the spring line of Oliver + S over at Fabritopia : )
I found this tutorial at Jona's blog from Melly and Me, I tell you this woman is a wealth of inspiration!LOL I have a huge laundry basket full of fabric scraps and now I know what to do with them. This also helps out with my wanting to learn how to quilt.
Oh, and Happy Father's Day to all of your dh's!
I have had a rough weekend, my dh took his annual Father's Day golf weekend with his best buddy. So, I have been alone with the kids since Friday morning. I don't much like being a single mommy. Plus, the two little ones have been EXTREMELY whiny for some reason ::::sigh:::: I am close to pulling my hair out, and am trying to not be all grouchy when he gets home tonight. He deserves this time away, I just wish it wasn't so hard on me. It doesn't help that the past week was crazier than usual. We had Vacation Bible School and my oldest son, Austin, had 2 golf tournaments over 3 days. He won both of them! However, dh goes with him, so they weren't home all week and I had the other 6 by myself, which is what made this weekend even harder.
Sorry for the whine, but I had to get it out before losing it with the kids, my nerves are shot!!! I didn't even plan on writing any of this, but I guess I needed to vent more than I realized. I feel a little better, I will feel alot better tonight when dh gets home LOL
