Children at Play!!

Oh my goodness!!  Why have I not heard of Sarah Jane Fabric before?!  How has this slipped by me?  I literally stumbled upon it yesterday when I was looking at iron on embroidery patterns, and then I discovered the cutest fabric ev-ah.  Not kidding.  I bought all the boy collections.  I can see a super cute quilt in the near future.  And some cute bibs.  Oh my gosh.  I can hardly contain my excitement!!!  It's a tough call, but I think this one is my favorite:

It's just all American boy, and so incredibly cute.  It's really really hard to find such cute boy fabric, that would work well for an older boy too.  I am so excited.  I think I might end up changing up E's room with this line!

Argus Leader!

YellowPlumBlossoms was featured in the Argus Leader yesterday!  For those of you who don't live in the area, it's our local newspaper.  It was a really sweet article that also featured another cute Etsy shop Sweet Sapling.  You can read the article HERE.

In other notes, G had his 9 month check the other day, and believe it or not, this little cutie weighs 25 lbs!!!  That's only 3lbs LESS than my 2 1/2 year old weighs!  Wowza!  Try carrying that on your hip all day! :)

So what do you guys think of the new Ann Kelle prints?  Love them?  What's not to love about them!?  I just got a few pieces in the mail yesterday, and I am so happy with them.  I ordered the cute little turtles, and birds, owls, and zig zag print.  I can't tell you how cute they are!!  I see some cute bibs in the works with these.

Monaco Patchwork.

I have finally finished the Monaco patchwork baby quilt.  I love how it turned out.  I decided to go 100% organic and use organic cotton Sherpa for the backing.  Have you ever worked with that stuff?!  WoW!  It's oh so soft and just gorgeous.  I am thoroughly impressed and will be buying more, hands down.  It's nice and thick which allowed me to get away without using any batting.

This time, rather than quilting it, I hand tied in all the corners of the squares with light pink embroidery floss.  I am so impressed with how it turned out, I want to make one for G {in the boy pattern of course!}

It's in the shop, go check it out!

It's time for a little patchwork blanket again!  I am going all organic this time. First organic quilt I've made!  I am using the Monaluna Monaco fabric {for girls}.  This is one of my favorite fabric lines.  I just love everything about it!  Of course everything that Jennifer designs is just adorable!

The chicks...

The scooters...

Today, at 12:53pm I turn 30.  Wow.  30.  I can remember when I had a babysitter who was 30 and she was "so old", and now here I sit, feeling so young still!  Does it always stay that way?  Will I feel this way when I am 40?  So weird.  You would think you feel wiser or different somehow, but really....I don't.  I still feel 25. 

I just had a great week-long visit with my family from California, and now it's back to reality tomorrow.  We had a great time!  Too bad the weather kept us house bound 2 of the 5 days!  Hot and humid do not go hand in hand. But we did light of some early fireworks...and I have the mosquito bites to prove it!

I hope you all have a great {and safe} Fourth of July!!
