Where did the week go?

*warning it is going to be a long post in hopes to make up for my lack of posting this week.
 I really have no idea… my grandma just left with my parents (they are taking her home to North Dakota) and I was just into spending time with her. I am gonna miss her, until she hopefully comes next summer. I did get a lot of other random things done, made a bunch of things, created a big mess in the studio and then really cleaned (even my best bud, thought I lost my mind), and scrapbooked a book for my grandma. So, I guess I should really do some show and tell:

First up, is the Kimono Style PJ from the Little Stitches for Little Ones by Amy Butler (link to Barnes and Noble) I made this for my cousin and her new baby, Julian. I love it! I can't wait to see him in it!

Now for project #2: I made a new purse using the tutorial/project from Buttercup Bag (it's free) from http://madebyrae.blogspot.com/ I used a fat quarter that I picked up at Jo-ann's on sale and some muslin I had laying around. I really like how it turned out and am planning on making another, but I think I will add some interfacing to make it stronger.
 
Project #3: is a top that I designed and had bought fabric for a few weeks ago, but didn't get quite enough. So that fabric is going to be something else and I went and found this from the Pop Garden Line by Heather Bailey. I do have to say that I am going to be making more of these. It is so comfy, cute, and only takes an afternoon to make one. I seriously love it!

While my grandma was here, she celebrated her 81st birthday- Here she is with an ice cream cake! 
  
  
  
*the cake was from dairy queen and I love this shot of my little guy and his great-grandma!
The garden is growing at a great rate- an update on that this weekend. But I will leave you with this little nugget- Coming tomorrow- ACornered Bookmark Tutorial
