Sew Sweet…

In my mailbox yesterday was one, oh SEW SWEET surprise!  I have been very blessed to have a great relationship with the editors at Sew Hip magazine.  They have published 4 of my projects previously.

That's my name on the cover even! My Mom is gonna freak!

This time, I got a full feature interview!  Wow oooh wow oh WOW!   And my little Sprout and the Two Peas are also pictured in the article – they were sort of thrilled.  One of the peas said, “It’s not like anybody except sewers reads it”.  I’m sorry…are there other kinds of people in the world?  Cuz baby, sewers..that’s MY PEEPS!

The awesome photos are by the bestest ever photographer - Britt Lakin Photography

I know that locally, our Barnes and Noble carries Sew Hip as well as our JoAnn fabrics stores.  This will be the April issue, Issue 27, which should be out on newstands in a few weeks.  Of course, I’ll be getting a stack of extra copies.  One for each of my kids for their memory boxes and one for my parents!

THIS is a super cute top in the magazine. Not mine. Super cute. I'm so gonna make one of these. Totally hide my leftover baby belly!

While trying to type up my little “toot my own horn” post – Sprout came in to snuggle.  She loves the photo booth app on the Macs.  Hence this cute pic.

If you follow me on Twitter, etc you may have heard me tweet about the tough road we are on with our Sprout.  She is experiencing some difficult medical issues currently and I probably don’t want to say much more than that as it’s very private and I’m maybe in a bit of denial.  All of the tests are not done so we are still waiting.  It has resulted in many sleepless nights and I’m trying to really focus hard on trusting that God has my back.  I can not change whatever it is but I can have faith that God will lead us.   I hired an office assistant this week to help with some of my daily tasks of running the business so that I could free my arms up for more of this cuddle time.  Immense amounts of cuddle time are now written into my daily schedule – I like it that way.

But Sprout may have also come into my office not just for a snuggle – it might have something to do with the candy jar I keep on my desk.

Who can resist Jolly Ranchers and dark chocolates?  Happy weekend all…
