A slight detour.

Aside from having bronchitis, and hosting the most fun Quilt-Along EVER, a few things have been happening in Chez Poppleton!

Such as: one of my best friends was in a bicycle accident and broke both her arms. Poor Kris! She is better now, after surgery and two different casts and a lot of my fretful hovering (not helpful) and Kat's excellent nursing (actually helpful). Look how cute we are. (This is one of the days I bullied her into coming over so I could keep an eye on her.)

Jenn & Kris

Also: my children were being excessively cute. I can't help it. I just think they are the most adorable ever.

The Wee Poppletons

And: Owen has officially earned the nickname "Holepunch"...he decided four months of age was quite old enough to sprout a couple of teeth. You can just see them in their bumpy baby-toothed glory poking out of the gums. Wowzas.

My baby is now officially a holepunch. #chompchomp #biteallthethings

Also: I sewed myself a skirt. I like it. And it's too big. Hoping it'll shrink in the wash.

Unpressed and haven't sewn a hem yet but LOOK! I made a SKIRT! #itsbeenawhile #selfishsewing #loulouthi

Plus: I finally used Piper's special roll of craft paper to draft a pajama pants pattern for myself...and then for her, too. (There was just enough! IT WAS FATE. Matching, super cute fate.)

Matching pyjamas for Mama & Piper.

And: FINALLY getting out to Kim Bradley's shop. Have you met Kim? She's awesome. Her shop is amazing and it deserves its own full post, which I plan to do once I get back there with more than just my iPhone. She's a gorgeous human and a gorgeous quilter. And she's a fabric addict, too. Always a plus!

Kim Bradley Creations

Also: I revamped a few weeks ago. Amazing how a proper clean-out refreshes the entire mind, heart, body, soul? Of course it was like that for approximately ten seconds. Heh.

There we go. Feeling a bit better. #propermuckout #honestcraftroom

Also, in slightly sad things I am rather in denial about: Kat went off to Europe on her adventures. I won't see her again until DECEMBER. Woe to me, my friends. Woe to me. The good news is, there's something I can work on while she's gone. :D

The fabric stack and the girl in question. ❤

And she did promise to go by Shaukat for me if she got the chance. Bless.

Also if you want to see Kat get thoroughly owned by her sailboat, there is video...

:)

Have a great weekend!
