Leave of absence...

It's been a wonderful feeling to leave the pressures of creativity for a while.  When I say pressures I'm talking about self imposed pressure.  While I haven't made any new patterns for sale lately - I've done a bit of dabbling and refocusing and a bit of unfocusing.

I've been dabbling in knitting and exploring the knitting world via Ravelry.  (see my profile here)

I'm thinking about making a romper pattern.  Hattie looks unsure about my fabric selection.  It was a great idea until I saw the hot dog vendor at the MN Twins game - same exact red and white stripes.  I felt like an evil Mom for dressing my baby the same as hot dog vendor.
The pattern would likely only be for babies because I think a toddler might look ridiculous in this getup.

Or I might make a racerback dress pattern.  I like this...the front armholes need a bit of tweaking.  Thoughts anyone?

But mostly hanging out with these two characters.  One of which figured out she can now reach items on the counter tops - including blueberry muffins. 
That looks like a vicious bite!

And Harriet is 4 months old! (I had to throw in some cute baby photos for the Aunt Vicky).

If this doesn't make you smile I don't know what will...

Hasta luego!


  1. Harriet is adorable! And I love the racerback dress! It's perfect!

  2. Love the dress, the cardi, and the pictures of Hattie! I think rompers are alright.(btw that would be the perfect 4th of July outfit and wouldn't look like a hot dog vendor if it was in different colors. And the chevron is awesome) The snaps on the bottom for diaper changes, like you included, are a must. My little girl who needs to be potty trained wouldn't be able to get the romper on and off without help. And as for grownups, I'm not a grownup that can carry that off. :)

  3. Where did you get the cute tag for your clothes? LOVE that chevron dress!

  4. Thanks so much!
    I got my tags on Etsy from World Wide Labels (they also have a .com website) and they're reasonably priced.

  5. Becky, your girls are SO cute! I hadn't been to your blog for a while but loved getting caught up. Harriet's smile is so beautiful - you guys are blessed! Hope all continues to go well!
