Hemp fleece lambs are go!


I stayed up very late the-night-before-the-last-market-before-Christmas making 4 new organic cotton & hemp fleece lambs, the fleece had only arrived the day before. I sometimes forget how long these things take, I think it must be like giving birth, they say you forget all the pain and complication when the baby is born, and I can be pretty optimistic about how long a toy takes to make. It took eleven hours to make the four lambs, and I was busy doing the closing stitches the next morning at the market. I LOVE THIS FLEECE! It's sooooo soft and lamby! I got it here, it worked out to be $30/m by the time I paid the shipping, so it's a little pricey, but very nice.

Welcome back to the post festive season life! I'm completely out of any routine, my wake up time has shifted from about 6/6:30am to about 9am, and I found myself awake and pumping at 1am last night (this morning), it made getting up for the markets on Saturday extra painful, and it meant I needed a little nap when I got at 3-- came home early thanks to Mr. Rain!

love the lambs and feel your pain. many are the times that i have burnt the midnight oil before a market. funny how often the very things i toil over are the ones that accompany me home-doh. i bet those little guys found there way into the homes and hearts of proud new owners

The fleece looks like the perfect replacement for the old fabric. It looks so soft and snuggly. I think you have a winner!
Since I stay at home with my small ones, my routine doesn't get changed much by the holidays, but we still manage to get thrown off. Good luck getting back into it! :)
