I got to start and finish something this week! It's a small accomplishment for a three day weekend, but that was the kind of weekend it was. This is a pattern by one of my favorite artists and bloggers, Abby Glassenberg. She is an amazing designer of softies but an even better teacher. Her blog is so instructive. I am eagerly waiting for her second book, it's all about designing your own softies!
Elena loves her little piggy. I am planning to make her a second identical one to take to day care. I think it will help her fall asleep since she likes to suck on a piece of cloth with her thumb. The fabric is a lovely Japanese cotton terry that I found at Momen+ this summer.
And what better for lunch on a day off than breakfast. Lucia and I had pancake bites! Libby, these were delicious and a perfect solution for pancakes when you just don't have time to stand in front of the stove. I made the orange cloud pancakes from King Arthur which were delicious. I'll be making these again.
