This is the cutest little mini Henry... he worked so hard on it this past weekend, sorting through my scrap bin, he's got the pants... but not the shirt... now I think i ought to see if I have enough of that black gingham to make him one!
Also, seeing his hung up with all of his classmates' little minis tonight at back to school night made my night... I love seeing how the kids portray themselves, so cute! ☺️
Today's #wip ... Felix dress from @grainlinestudio in organic cotton hemp and lined with rayon bemberg taffeta lining both from @imaginegnats ...
Perfect pairing! .

That feeling you get when you want to wear your new handmade shoes and it's raining out πŸ™„

This project was one of the most fun and super satisfying makes I've ever made! 
Espadrilles! I made shoes!
The espadrilles kit from @ahappystitch has everything you need to do the same! 
Head on over to the blog to find all the details, pics, etc...
You should really try these, you won't be disappointed! .

Being on the DL isn't the best...
But being able to cheer on my cheer squad from the sidelines and hand out high fives and watch them run amazingly!  Well that makes it pretty ok πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜ƒπŸ’—(today anyway...πŸ˜‰)
(She says as she made it to the gym for a little ease back into things "workout" 😜)
And I got to see @mommyrunfast come in first woman for her second #1 two weekends in a row! Awesome!!
It's been four days of no running (or much of anything but walking to/from school and the dog) for me... I've been keeping busy with sewing projects which is good...
But I'll be honest I'm feeling down, and a bit "woe is me", and a lot frustrated, and bored, and pudgy πŸ™„
And really, while I have been sewing it's slow...
I'm realizing, not that it's a surprise really, that without my daily runs/exercise my mind is muddled and I'm having a terribly hard time focusing, on everything from sewing, to grocery lists, to making lunches, dinner, schedules etc...
Ugh, looking forward to getting my mind clear again and my body moving! .

Rainy days, no school and a sprained ankle... not a great combo... πŸ™„πŸ˜•
While at the dentist I just complimented him on his pants and said... "I wish I had a pair of pants like this!"
His response...
"Make your own!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
These were supposed to have been his first day of school pants, but not when it felt like 100! But perfect for a rainy dreary cold day like today!
Elastic cuffed #parsleypants in Brussels washer linen from  @imaginegnats

An undefeated weekend for both kids' teams!! 7 games of soccer this weekend!  Today's soggy and wet πŸ˜•
And... this girl's team won the championship game!! So proud of all of the players!  It was a joy to watch them play so strong and well as teams! πŸ†πŸ…βš½οΈπŸ’ͺ🏻
Merely a mile and a half in to my 19 my predawn run this morning, I tripped and twisted my ankle and took a tumble... I hobble ran home and iced as I waited for the rest of the house to wake up...
The good news is that it's "just a sprain" though it hurts like hell! 
This is going to put a damper on my NYC marathon training πŸ™„πŸ˜•πŸ‘ŽπŸ»
