WAHM Spotlight- Pumpkin Pie Baby

Angela of Pumpkin Pie Baby makes beautiful crocheted wool longies and soakers for cloth diapered babes. She has been stocking at the Bed and Breakfast Congo , but will be re-stocking her own HyenaCart on January 1st and then continuing to stock on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. She's a licensed seller of the Peppermint Soaker and Morning Glory Longie from Ladybugz Farm. I love her cherries longie set, and it will be available tomorrow at 2pm!!

wooly bounty, maybe

The fabric that I use the most is wool crepe. I've been looking for a source of crepe that is affordable and of good quality, and it seems as if there aren't many people carrying it consistently. I finally found some and have ordered quite a bit. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be as good as the last batch I got. I don't like having to order from different sources every time I need it, which is why I got so much this time. If it's everything I want it to be, I won't have to order again for a while.

Apple fairies!

This is what came from my head and hands and some of the new fabric from last week. I'm in love!! I also want to make a pair of corduroy bloomers to match, the fabric is already cut and ready to sew. But, the kidlets are working on a couple of stuffy noses, so they are being a bit clingy.
Apparently my Underwool design is getting talked about at Diaperswappers and on the HyenaCart forums. I love that! I'm starting to take custom orders, and am having so much fun working with my customers to make the exact item that that are wanting.

Oh, and by the way...

I've been walking without any assistance for two days!!!
My doc gave me the all clear today, and all I have to do is build up more strength in my lower leg and I'm good to do anything. I'll probably have some residual pain for up to a year, but the break is almost completely knitted together. So, I won the race to walk, but the babies aren't that far behind.

New Fabric

I got some adorable new fabric the other day, and I've already got plans for it. Some of it anyway. I've drafted the patterns, and it's currently in the washer doing it's pre-shrinking. I really hope to have lots of time this weekend to sew so that I can get some of these ideas out of my head and into reality.

Pirate Bootie Baby is stocking!

Tomorrow at noon, Pirate Bootie Baby will be stocking Underwool and a super-sweet skull-n-bones t-shirt. I also have re-listed the grand opening Lottery. I had to void the first lottery because someone entered it using multiple email addresses, 5 of them!! Seems that she had been winning lots of lottos that way. I wanted my lotto to have a winner who played fair, so I re-listed it.
I also finished a new weighted Waldorf doll for a friend of mine. She sells baby carriers and uses the dolls to to show customers how the carrier will feel with a baby in it. Check out her store, Sprout Soup. Here's the doll...
I'm really happy with the way it came out. It weighs 11 pounds, but it feels heavier. It looks so cute when it's diapered and dressed.

We've had the sickness from hell for the last week. Puking, poopy babies and sleepy, hungry mama. I've been so busy nursing and changing clothing, sheets and diapers that I haven't been sleeping or eating enough. The mister got it too, but so far I've managed to stay relatively healthy. I did feel absolutely horrible yesterday, but I'm guessing that it's more about lack of sleep than germies.
