I love this pattern, but it was much trickier to make this hat from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew than I remember from last year. Curved piecing, no problem. It was stitching in the cap on the reversible side to the already constructed brim. Getting those seams to line up properly without extra fabric was tough.

A couple weeks ago, Adam and I took Hannah to Northlandz. This was a place I’d never heard of before and came across while researching summer fun. And I’m probably the last person to know about this place. It’s the world’s largest model railroad!

Last Day of School 20151

Another year finished. It’s been a draining week; we had a family crisis with one of my relatives this week, and it’s been emotional. But then suddenly today Hannah was finishing up her last year in the toddler room at her school. Next year she’ll be in the primary room (ages 3-6). Two full years with the best teacher, and she’s grown so much and changed so much.

Mother's Day 2015

I like Mother’s Day. I’m still pretty new at it; I’ve had a great one, a not-so-great-one (poor destination choice), and an out-of-the-country one. So I’m still figuring out what to actually do on Mother’s Day to celebrate, and this year I feel like I’ve gotten the closest to what I want out of the day. First, here’s how I got to this realization.

April 2015 Outfits

I have to admit this to myself, overall. April was not too shabby. In the thick of things April (and really March, too) felt like a hill we’d never get over. There have been work/life balance stresses and Hannah preschool stresses, and having a three-year-old stresses. When Hannah turned 3 in March it was like a switch flipped and an obstinate, boundary-pushing, bedtime-hating little stranger appeared. We’ve also been sick in waves, and none of us were getting any sleep for at least a couple of weeks.

Other posts on this project: Victory Gardens Quilt Pt. 1.

I finished this little quilt for Hannah Thanksgiving week, but for some reason I just never got around to posting photos. I don’t think it was any real reason other than the holidays kept me busy and then there was too much snow to take it outside for photos.

geeky sprinkles

Yes, I know it’s April. But it occurred to me that there were lots of fun things about last month that I didn’t want to write about as standalone posts. So, why not combine them? Especially since the grim weather is finally starting to disappear, and I can remember all the good times winter and I had without feeling stabby about the snow.

stof dots dress

Other posts on this project: I’m in Love with These Stof Dots.

I finished her dress! I used McCall’s M6541 pattern, but I just made the basic little pinafore dress with it. No applique or Ric Rac. This is the same pattern my mom used for a blue version of this dress last summer, and Hannah is taller than the biggest dress size for the pattern now.

hannah's 3rd birthday party 1

Yesterday we had Hannah’s third birthday party at Sugarush in Red Bank. This is our favorite cupcake bakery, and I love that they’ve opened a party room for events. Read more on Cupcake Party!…

scavenger hunting 1

I’ve been on a mission to plan more activities with Hannah, and we are having a ball. I made up a kind of lesson plan book for her specifically, because this is just how my brain works best. So, I’ve been loosely planning out our days in it. Not down to the second, but I’ve been planning library days, baking days, etc.
