Hey, remember me?

Oh my, what a long and unintended hiatus from blogging! Everything is fine here, I just kind of crashed after Christmas and needed a break from all things handmade. In fact, when I made this little smock for Zöe on Saturday it was the first time I had turned on my sewing machine since Christmas Eve. It was nice to get my machine started up with inspiration, excitement, and desire rather than a sense of work.

So, my mom designed this little pup for me to embroider. Isn't he cute? I made it into a pocket and put it on this little smock for Zöe to wear to the Wurst Gallery's Wurstminster Dog Show on Saturday night. We had another engagement beforehand, so we didn't even get to the show until almost nine. It was packed! Like, you had to wait for someone to leave before you could go in, packed. There was so much fantastic stuff, and lots of it.

My mom did this amazing painting, and the kids really got a kick out of seeing it up on the wall in a crowded happenin' place. Although, I may not have explained the concept of an art show very clearly because this morning Jack asked me, "Who won?" Max fell asleep in the middle of the whole fracas, stretched out on the window seat with his head on my dad's lap. And Zöe was like a clip-on koala bear, clinging to me for dear life. I don't think her feet touched the floor once. So much for the themed outfit. You can check out all of the pieces in the online gallery here.

It's good to be back! I missed you guys!
