{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Yarn Along

Joining Ginny at Small Things...

Ravelry notes here- this is my favorite bootie pattern- it really stays on!

A few bloggers knit these recently, so I had to give the pattern a try!
I have been on a baby bootie kick lately.  With Baby Handley #3 expected in October, I have a great excuse to make some, and as I am just (almost) coming out of 20 weeks of morning sickness, small, quick projects are what I need to keep my motivation up.  Besides, what could be cuter than booties with pom pons?!

I have been reading the Hunger Games Trilogy recently...stayed up way too late last night getting into the third book.  The books seem to defy description, but they are certainly worth a read.  I can't seem to put them down!

Sewing for Summer

I am finally beginning to come out of my first-trimester (and a half) fog of exhaustion and return to the sewing room.  Matt was kind enough to give me an entire day to myself on Saturday, and wow, it is amazing what you can get done in an un-interrupted day!

I made a few surprises for birthdays and milestones coming up in the next few months, but also a few summer dresses for Miss Violet.

For one, I cut down an old tank-top of mine...looks much cuter on her than it ever did on me!

For two others, I used my favorite baby-dress pattern, the same one I used to make her 1st Birthday Dress...but this time in the 2/3T size.

In typical Violet fashion, the best pictures I could get of her in these dresses were of her standing happily outside in a puddle.  She is our nature girl! Also, please notice the snow boots in the first picture- her brother's winter boots are her current footwear of choice.  Why?  Because she can DO IT HERSELF, of course.

Let's Roll!

This weekend we had the chance to attend a Roller Skating Party with our local Mom and Tot group.  They had all sorts of balls and cars and toys to roll around on, as well as the good old Fisher Price toddler skates.  We had the place to ourselves, with no big kids to run over our little guys.  Even Daddy donned a pair of skates for some super-speedy Cozy Coupe rides.  It was a blast!
