make me a match, find me a find, catch me a catch.

i may try but i do not have much skills when it comes to sewing. i mean, i can hold my own... i actually sewed andrew's halloween costume this year, but by no means can i make the things my mom has. i recently asked my mom how to do something related to sewing and she told me, "you're a smart girl, you'll figure it out." well, sometimes smarts do not help at all when you are seriously challenged.

andrew's windows remained bare until his first birthday party. i was embarrassed and we bought some of the cheapie plastic blinds from walmart (which have proved to be a poor purchase, evidenced by the pictures of the curtains - andrew has attacked them many times.) i made a trip to a fabulous fabric store and found fabric that perfectly matched the border on the wall and our paint color. i bought enough for the curtains and my mom quickly sewed them up in time for the party.

fast forward, what, almost a year, and i wanted to get more fabric for a cover for the bumper. i wanted something updated for our new baby. a second baby never gets much that is new and all his own, so i liked the idea of sprucing things up. surprise, surprise... the fabric store didn't have any more of the fabric, but after scanning the curtain to the shop owner, i knew the maker and name of the fabric. i was able to order some online and find some matching colors that i hadn't seen before.

and so, my mom has sewn me a cover for the bumper. with coordinating ties in orange and yellow. i am in love with this bumper. and christian loves laughing and pulling the side down to peek at his brother in the other bed.
