Time for something new?

I recently was asked to make some bibs in a smaller size than I normally do.  I have spent time "perfecting" my standard pattern, and really wasn't interested in going back to the drawing board, and doing it all again. To me the bib size is part of my "signature" and I wasn't sure I wanted to change all that.

But the request was from a friend, and I just couldn't say no.  So I made them.

They are so adorable.  And they use up those pesky scraps that are too small for my "usual" projects (or some of them anyway).

So now I'm torn.  Do I take my bibs in a whole new direction and add this smaller, newborn friendly size?

Hey Monkey!

So I turned a year older this week.

My amazing co-worker, Lauren, made me the bestest birthday cake I've had in a long, long time.

Read all about it here.  Lauren's telling of the making of this cake is the icing on the cake (so to speak).

And she's right.

I loved it.
