After all the seam ripping and nail biting that went into making this top for baby r, I decided to try it all again. Turns out that this little cotton tank could just be the perfect baby wardrobe staple: looks sweet with leggings or bloomers and is a great layering piece (what baby doesn't need a great layering piece?!?). This time I used Nani Iro Fabric (one old, one new) and all lessons learned from my last attempt. I am pretty pleased.

Whew. What a week. R woke up sick with a fever on Saturday morning and E threw his back out in a pretty serious way Saturday afternoon. I've spent the week trying to help them both back to health by day and have been hit with a bad case of insomnia by night. In my sleepless haze last night, I browsed through my unjustifiably large collection of Japanese sewing books and picked out a few to-do projects for better days, hopefully soon.

I made a stop at Purl this weekend to pick up some supplies. I am about 5 Miss Marple episodes away from finishing the needlepoint - but don't worry - I already have a second one lined up.
