Here, there, everywhere!

This weekend was awesome! It was hot, sunny, beautiful... I even got a sun burn (not so awesome, but a true sign of summer for this fair-skinned lady).  Dan and I got our yard cleaned up. It is slowly looking better and better.  In our backyard, we have a rickety old garage that I have mentioned many times before (it is literally falling down).  It had a metal overhang off the back that collapsed under the weight of the snow this winter.  So, we got rid of it, got rid of our pile of dirt and brush that had collected over previous years, re-seeded the lawn, weeded all of the gardens (my job), and repaired some holes in the fence with new lattice.  It looks so much less like hill billies live here now! By Sunday night I was pretty exhausted, but we went out to my parents house and sat in the backyard and we all played fetch with Oliver... he is the best at fetch.

Yesterday was one of those days when I got totally consumed by computer stuff... editing photos, reordering labels, packing supplies (damn! I forgot to order envelopes!),  fabrics, writing up tutorials, sent out quotes, replied to long lingering emails... It feels good to have those things off of my To-Do list, and now I feel like I can really get down to work!

Last month, some of my bras were featured on the blog, Undiegamer.  If you haven't seen this blog, you need to check it out.  The tag line is "Lightheartedly Loafing in Legitimatly Lovable Lingerie."  How can you not love that? She also featured some Fortnight pieces in that same post, which is a brand that I've been dying to try myself.

So, I have a million orders to try to tackle this week and next, but what I really want to be doing is finishing these damn swimsuits! I also wanted to add some of these hair tie packs to my shop... I make these for my hair and I love them! I have very fine hair that gets tangled around every type of elastic except for these.  Unlike most of the FOE hair elastics, these aren't just knotted; I sew them together.  I'm kind of obsessed with these things...


  1. I am dreaming of making a bikini with your Jasmine pattern. The first bra I made turned out great. Could you kindly tell me what kind of elastic you use around the legs?

  2. Sounds like you've got one very busy week ahead. I hope you find time to get all that you need done but also squeeze in some rest and play time! Love the patterns of those hair elastics. Cute! I made a few of them myself with some fold over elastic and I quite love them too.
