On My Desk, A bit of Stash and a Flashback

On my desk this week is a finished pair of shorts for Caleb in the same material as the caterpillar pants, but I turned the pockets on their side. I so love the Sprout caterpillars, you can find them here. Poor Caleb needs a little summer. More desky love at Kootoyoo
I have been loving looking at everyone's stash goodies so far this week that of course originated over at Mike's (How much do we love them!). These little babies I got from EmilyMe, a Chinese lady that has short run hand printed fabrics. This Poppy fabric I think may be my favourite for this summer, I can so see it trimmed to a white dress - I know it's tacky but I love Poppy in some Poppies (At least we didn't call her Bindie I guess, that wouldn't be quite so cute of fabric. Ironic really Mum wanted to call me Cindy and Dad wanted Bindie, strange but true fact.) Back to the subject, I can't wait to team the cars with some purple for Caleb pants. I love purple on boys!
A flashback, Poppy had on today the very first thing I sewed for her after bringing my little machine out of hibernation. I combined a vintage pattern with some super cute Japanese deer fabric and white sleeve frills. I was so excited when I found those buttons that matched perfectly at Spotlight. This was about the start of my sewing obsession! Who knows where it will end? (This close up photo is one of my favourites, Caleb took it for me.)

I really love your fabrics. And I think poppies on Poppy is great - definitely not tacky! And I love Caleb's photo, super good. That deer top is gorgeous. Funny, I was going to post today about some photos Noah has taken. A little different to Caleb's though... Sigh.
