What an awesome package, huh?
I made some bloomer pants for a friend's baby that is due next month. I still have a shirt to make with it!
I completed some more bibs and got all of the buttons put on them for 2 friends of mine who have babies. I am almost done with a ton of burp cloths too! YAY!
I also made some progress yesterday on my Amy Butler Bag. I have one bag completely cut out and another in the wings waiting to be cut!! I am hoping to get more completed today!

2. I have one more day of training to complete for my new job and then I can slowly come back to the land of sewing and crafting. My blog has been so sad without photos of projects I have been completing! I hope to get some new photos up by Tuesday evening. I have at least 2 aprons to post!!
3. My dear, sweet friend Frankenpug is hosting a giveaway!! She has delightful little pugs and she is such a WONDERFUL friend..........SO - get on over to her blog and join in her giveaway. Let's get her a ton of entries!! Don't make me come to your house and rough you up (wink!).
4. Get those scraps in the mail - they are due to be mailed by tomorrow!!!!
5. I am kicking around the idea of renting a cabin for a weekend and hosting a little fun weekend to sew. I am thinking about some place beautiful (like CO!). I know this would exclude many people, but if I decide to rent one say in like June - would anyone else be mildly interested??? Just kicking around some thoughts! Leave a comment if anyone is interested! How fun to finally meet some of you face to face!!

We the People 4 - Amy Butler Bag participants: I have pushed the deadline back by one week to help allow some more time to complete the bag! Bags are now due to be mailed no later than SATURDAY, MARCH 7th. That gives you one month to complete the bag!!! Make sure you remember to use delivery confirmation when mailing the bag so I can track the bag if need be!!
Mini Swap question: I have had a couple emails come in asking if we could do one more mini swap while waiting for the WTP 4 to wrap up. I am all for hosting another mini swap. I will put a poll to the right and feel free to vote. I will do this for just a day or two to see if there is interest!!

I have had a blast in Florida so far. I started training today and I am learning so much already. I have been around on some of the islands and I went digging for seashells with my husband. Digging for seashells was my favorite thing!!! I come home late Wednesday evening and I start another 4 days of training once being home. THEN - I can focus on some major sewing projects (2 AB weekender bags!!!). I am almost done with a Amy Butler Apron that is due for a swap and my scraps will go out next weekend too!
Thanks for being patient as there has not been as many photos of projects lately. Once I get this job under my belt a bit more I will be able to work sewing back in to a time slot!!
I will be posting some FL photos later this week too. Happy sewing and have a happy week!
