Summer is in full swing. It is here in all it’s nostalgic glory… ice cream cones, sunscreen, tan legs, dirty feet, lemonade, comic books, staying up late, sleeping in, county fair, fresh fruit, happy summer hum!
Since all my friends are busy having summer babies I have been busy sewing baby things. I do love sewing for babies! So many tiny things all over the sewing room, more than I bothered to take pictures of but here are a few~
Our friends (who also happen to be family on my husband’s side) were expecting their first child this July. They decide not to find out the baby’s gender, so I made some gender neutral onesies and burp clothes. To be honest I’m not very good at making gender neutral things. I’m constantly wondering if they are too feminine or too masculine.
On a whim I made a little dress, just in case they had a little girl. I used some vintage fabric my friend gave me for my birthday. It was cream with a raised yellow swiss dot. I added mint green baby buttons to the front.
I’ve been working hard to keep the kiddos busy this summer (not too busy, but trying to fight off the summer madness that can set in). We’ve made many trips to the library and I am happy to report, we have only incurred one 25 cent late fee!! I know. I can hardly believe it myself.
We went away for 2 nights and 2 days for our anniversary. Stayed in Carmel-by-the-Sea (yes that is the towns’ full name). We slept in, eat amazingly good food, took hikes, sat on the beach, and window shopped.

PS~ my camera is not working right now. I have my best tech guy working on it, but I’m not sure I will be posting pictures anytime real soon. Hopefully it can be brought back to life!
