Little Boy Blue

Firstly— thank you to all that came by and shopped and visited for the Autumn Gathering! It was so fun to share all my new autumn art with you! All the orders placed this weekend are all in the mail, so they should be reaching doorsteps near and far very soon! ๐Ÿ˜€ From Oklahoma to England and placed in between, not too shabby I think!

Aside from the colors of autumn, I’ve had blue on the brain, little boy blue of course! I finished up the cardigan I’ve been working on and I think it looks pretty good for no pattern and only a slight notion of what I was doing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I dont know how to make button holes yet so I just sewed on a button and knitted up a little loop that I sewed to the other side and voila! Baby boy cardigan!

I’ve been looking at baby clothes and seeing them differently now through a lens of blue and not pink. I wish there were more vintage old fashioned style boy things out there, like there are for girls. If I could sew and had patience, I’d totally start up a ‘Little English Urchin’ boys clothes line ๐Ÿ˜‰ at least I can make dapper little knits, right?

For boy clothes and decor right now I’m really in love with nautical things (says the girl who’s only been to the Gulf of Mexico and was unimpressed with its brownness) Boats and whales especially. I made this little list on etsy to remind myself of all the cute things on there that Little One might need. I would rather get him special things made by an actual artist or crafts person when I can, and the things on etsy are so much cuter than anything you’ll find at the store! I’m especially loving this quilt and I think he needs it….

I’m at 22 weeks now and getting bigger by the day. I am one of those pregnant ladies who really look pregnant. Will never be one of those gals on the show about not knowing they were pregnant til they’re having the baby. This all can’t be from mexican food, can it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

And its been so hot lately that I am just big and miserable and if you see me around town in my husband’s soccer shorts just know— I am round and desperate and hot. I swear, I have some cute things for fall in the closet with tags on them, I’m just waiting for it not to be 95 degrees!

And speaking of not 95 degrees….Im still dreaming up fall art and will soon be thinking of— of course!– Christmas! I will be offering Christmas postcards again, and I’ll need some new designs! Oh, the thought of snow just makes me smile. I feel like I would just steam if some snow fell on me now.

Well, back to scheming and painting, til next time!~

  1. Sailing, sailing, over the ocean blue! Cute theme for your pending arrival! Although \” Little Boy Blue, Come blow your horn, she sheep's in the meadow , the cows in the corn\” sort of fits right in the with the cute knitted sweaters you have been making as well. Your cardigan turned out so perfect. I am impressed how you figured it all out with out a pattern too. He is going to look quite dapper in it!If only we could get some cool canadian air out way! It has been so hot lately every single day! Maybe next week??? Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve for fall art!


  2. Oh you look lovely with your round belly! ๐Ÿ™‚ So excited for you, Violet is turning one in October so we are planning a little pumpkin party! I also am excited for cooler weather.

  4. You look adorable – and so does that cardigan! Sorry about the heat – we've had it here too. No fun! My youngest son was born in August (24 years ago!!!) – I remember being completely miserable – we didn't have air conditioning. I hope you get some nice cool fall days soon…
