New Flannel PJ's for Growing Kid.

*I realize I took these pictures in the bathroom.*
 And by the way, that toilet somehow becamee unbolted from the floor last week. Not sure how. But my dad helped me fix it. (Thanks, Dad.) I've never heard of anyone else having this problem with their toilet. I think one of the three boys probably dismantled the toilet. They take apart an awful lot of things. 

The PJs were made with the same pattern I used last year to make my two oldest boys' Christmas PJs. But I had to enlarge the pattern....and not just extend the arms and legs (which I did) but more importantly, increase the neck diameter, collar size, and the rise on the PJ pants.

Gardening, Sunglasses, Flowers, and Sewing.

Here's what I've been doing all summer. Not sewing as much, but I've been GARDENING. 

How have we never grown sunflowers before this summer? They are amazing. And so simple to grow. In fact, my four year old planted some on accident around the garden.

Living Room Updates (New Pillows!!)

A few months ago, my husband and I rearranged our living room. We really just moved the couch away from the wall and moved the coffee table out, replacing it with an ottoman. (I wish it were the type of ottoman with storage inside, but it isn't.) I wanted to make new pillows and covers to replace these pillows which I made two years ago.

Zanzibar Tank Testing & Review

I was able to test a new pattern (almost two months ago, just getting around to blogging about it now!) I tested the Zanzibar Shores Tank by Mama Quail Patterns and it turned out really well! The pattern uniquely combines knit and woven fabrics.

A Skirt and Two Pairs of PJ Shorts

 I made myself this skirt awhile back. I've only worn it a handful of times. I used some whitish knit fabric and stamped it with circles (made with a toilet paper roll). 
It is a self-drafted yoga waist skirt. 

It is such an odd photo;my 6 year-old took it.
