Super mom to the rescue!!

That project I was telling you about last night? Well, RJ loves it. He woke up this morning and put it on, he even wore it to the post office. He told everyone "my mommy made it for me" with a big grin on his face. I got teary eyed at one point when an older woman told him "mommy loves you more than you will ever know, and even I can see that because she made that cape with love".

He just woke up, don't mind the skivvies!

So tonight when I got home from work, we went for a swim (or shall I say RJ went for a swim). He is getting more comfortable in the water and will even jump in to the deep end with his floaties on. He had a pair of goggles I bought him and thought it was so cool to see the bottom. Good thing he's finally learned not to breathe underwater, eh?

When we got back from the pool, RJ went right to sleep. He had a long day of playing since Matt took them to the lake when I went to work. He said they stayed until the sun went down. So I set off to do another project, a cape for Aubrey. I had some cute strawberry and plaid coordinating prints, so I modified my last template and came up with this one:

I think I need to make a few more tweaks. I would like to fuse the fabrics together and applique a design on each side. I like the fact that is is currently reversible to the appliques will have to go on before I sew them together. The other projects I was working on? They're still in progress, I am just trying to go with the flow. It is much easier than trying to force myself into doing something.


  1. I so wish I could sew! Those capes are super cute! Let me know if you take orders, my kids want one!

  2. I will be once I perfect the pattern, thanks Karen!

  3. I think we'll probably have to buy one or 2 from you as well :) Those came out looking great.
