some recent projects

I've been kind of slacking in the blog-posting field as of late. Some of that is because I've been spending more time posting on my food blog. And some of it is that we've been spending lots of time out in our yard and at the park because the weather's been so nice!! Oh, I love spring! And there's a new park with a splash pad really close to us, so we've been there almost every day since it opened. Loving it.

But I have managed to squeeze in a few other projects and orders from my etsy shop.

One of these projects was making some new sheets and a pillow case for my little boy! Now that he's been in a toddler bed for a while, and is actually using a pillow sometimes (although about half the time we find it either on top of him, or on the floor), I figured I should make him some new sheets with a matching pillow case.

And of course I used the same fabric as his beloved "train blankie!" This kid is obsessed with trains, and I'm pretty sure his train blanket is his very most prized possession. So I'm hoping he'll love having his whole bed and pillow covered in the same fabric! Maybe it'll even encourage him to stay in his bed more. (Wishful thinking, I'm sure.)

I've also been working on some new puppet sets that hopefully will be finished and up in the shop soon! But first I've got to deal with a birthday and party for my soon-to-be three-year-old. Can't believe he's getting so big!
