I guess I can sign off and finish sewing a bag I started last night. Have a relaxing day!

I haven't had a chance to introduce our cute three little bunnies. I have always loved rabbits even before I knew I was born the Year of the Rabbit. Check your sign here. I like the description from the Chinese Restaurant's placemat the best where it says--Luckiest of all signs..... I have always wanted a pet rabbit since I was in second grade when I saw my friend's rabbit but alas I never got one so when my daughter wanted a pet there was no question about which one.
The dark bunny is Precious our first bunny but she passed away last September. We miss her a lot. She was more like a dog--she used to come running when you whistle and do a binky ( jump and twist in midair).
Until next time.

Finally my room and my daughter's are finally done! The wood floors are in and we are ready to paint and decorate. I have decided to do mine first. I have been so busy since Babycakes Boutique opened a year ago that I haven't gotten around to doing stuff for myself.
This is where my old closet was and I kept a little portion of it as an additional what else?? Fabric closet! To the right is the door to my studio, across it is my bed. To the left of the wall and further back is my new walk in closet. I haven't decided what color to paint my room yet but it would be lighter or the same than that of the studio.
I have always used white or light sheets but I am ready for some color. This would be my color palette. Just love Amy Butler's prints. They work so well together. I love pillows and it would be awesome to showcase these prints. I might be brave enough to tackle a patchwork duvet cover!
Just bought some pillow patterns and I am planning to put them where the blank wall is. It looks complicated but after reading the instructions it turned out to be pretty easy. Time consuming, maybe because of all the petals you have to cut, interface and hand sew.

I hope everybody had a wonderful 4th of July. It was such a beautiful day until about 4:30 when it rained cats and dogs. I was so looking forward to grilling some fish and chicken that I have marinated the night before but it wasn't meant to be. We needed the rain though--well I guess I will be grilling for lunch today!
I have a some Joan (a feminine version of my eldest brother's name, Jonathan) messenger bags made a couple of months ago and had put a preview on my site. I did some test drive and had to make some minor changes. There were a couple of inquiries about when they are available for sale and I actually sold two to a very good but impatient customer. I am happy to say I am ready to unveil them this week, pictures are ready and will be adding them before the end of the week. It can be converted into a backpack or a stroller bag and it comes with 3 straps and a matching storage pouch--isn't that great?
I can't stay long I have to make a Genny and Raina set that came in yesterday morning.
