It's been busy.

Well, since the last time I posted, we went on spring break to look at houses in El Paso.  We will be PCSing to Ft. Bliss this summer.  While on spring break, James managed to get some sort of stomach bug which gave him a fever, as well as vomitting.  I was apparently next on the list, as 24 hours after he got sick, I got a fever.  My stomach was sensitive, but I never threw up.  It was hard to tell if any nasuea was realted to the pregnancy, or the illness.  Anyway, off to El Paso to do some house hunting. 

We stopped in Oklahoma both on the way there, and on the way back.  On the way back James proceeded to get the croup, but managed to fight this one off rather well.  During this time, I also had two custom orders come in, and since being home, three more.  I've gotten two of the orders done and out the door, and am currently working on two more.

My congo will be having a stocking themed about April being the month of the Military Child.  Since military apparel for children is my specialty, I'm particularly excited about this one.

Also, the Great Cloth Diaper Hunt has been cancelled, but since we didn't want to miss out on the fun, my congo has decided to put on our own little hunt.  We will have weekly prizes, as well as a grand prize.  Be sure to check back regularly so that you don't miss out on anything.

Now that's done. On to the next project.

Yesterday I finished, and packaged up two dresses, and a diaper cover.  I still need to get a picture of the diaper cover, but I have a few of one of the dresses already loaded.  Today, after visiting a friend, I will be embarking on an ACU diaper bag.  I'm rather excited about it, as I've had it planned for a while.  I also plan on making a Woodland MARPAT diaper cover, and possibly a dress. 

I will also be making up some samples soon for the Great Cloth Diaper Hunt, and finishing a shirt for a collaboration that I'm doing on Creative Mamas with a guest vendor.  Stay tuned and check it out.

Work, work, work.

Well, Saturday I finished the diaper covers and bibs.  Monday, I cut two dresses for custom orders, and today I have the first one finished except for stitching the lining to the main dress, the buttons and the button holes.  After that I'll move onto the custom sling back dress, and an ACU diaper cover.  I also finished an XL March Madness themed fleece soaker for this weeks stocking on Creative Mamas. Tomorrow, I plan to finish up the sling back dress, diaper cover, and get a few more things done for the Creative Mamas and Bitty Fluff stockings. 

Stay tuned for pictures of all these items, as I'm going to try to get some pictures tomorrow, and I think they look great.
