Here are some new happenings in my sewing studio today!

I'm working with corduroy to make some extra soft owls that are great for cuddling! Tried out a totally new pattern with the completed one, probably a couple things I will adjust if I make more like this one, but I'm loving the taller slimmer owl and I'm loving how soft and cozy this fabric feels :)

A new baby is coming soon to my family. So it has me thinking a lot about homemade baby gifts. I can't wait to share the things I've been working on, but they are top secret until mid-November ;) In the meantime, here is a super easy tutorial I found to make a comfy swaddle blanket. When I had my son two and a half years ago I had the hardest time finding flannel blankets that weren't the small receiving blankets. The obvious solution is to make your own. Check out this fabulous tutorial from Riley Blake.

Sweet Autumn, how I love thee...

Autumn is my favorite season.

I love the cool crisp air. I love the fall colors against the sky. The sky seems bluer and the contrasts sharper. The air smells cleaner. I just feel lighter and more in awe of the world around me this time of year...
