Baby Boot Update

Remember the Charlie boots I made for my nieces for Christmas?  As I suspected they didn't fit. :(  Their little feet couldn't make the turn from the ankle into the bootie.  Neither the size 3 or 4 would go on.  My one SIL decided a zipper would make these puppies fit and she was right!  She doesn't have a sewing machine but was able to put these in by hand.  I am super impressed. A simply little addition got two little feet moving in furry baby boots.  Check out these chubby legs.  I.die.of.squishable.cuteness!

I just need to fix the other pair and get them back before winter is over!

New Beads

This is not sewing but just as fun. It has been awhile since I played with some beads.  I recently went on a girl date to a local bead store and was immediately smitten with these beautiful cornflower blue glass beads.  The smaller ones have bronze edges.  I don't think I will ever outgrow wanting to immediately wear a new thing added to my wardrobe.  I go back to work tomorrow after having 2 weeks off.  Maybe wearing this necklace will make my re-entry to the real world more bearable?  Here's to hoping!
