Time for a winner!
Folded up scraps of paper in a bowl, always a favorite :)

This sweet little boy begged to help, who could say no? Even with that funky fake tattoo :/
And the winner is:

Yay! Trisha! I'll shoot you an email and we can get this party started!

Only 3 away from the big 400 in the FriedOkra shop! I get all sappy and super generous around milestones so take advantage!

As promised, it's time for a little giveaway in celebration of 3 years on Etsy and *almost* 400 sold!


I am giving away one custom ordered Half-Pint pouch. Yup, custom! You pick the colors, word, font, and all that good stuff. It could be a name, nickname, inside joke, you know... customized! Half-Pint's are 6x9 with a patchworked front and a print on the back. Buttons, rick rack, and hand embroidered patch. Shipping is free too! Even to places like Okinawa :)

Example for sale in the SHOP:

Just leave me a comment to enter and I'll randomly draw a winner on Wednesday (July 28th)! Make sure I have a way to contact you!
In your comment if you have any suggestions for names I haven't used yet for a Sock Monkey that would be fantastic :)

Oh! Check out the SHOP for the details on another little giveaway!

Silver Dollar City!

We celebrated the eldest of my offspring's birthday at Silver Dollar City this past weekend.
He rode in every #12 on every ride he could.

Growing up too fast.

Squirt was quite the charmer :)

A sweaty good time was had by all :)

Obviously I have unintentionally taken the summer off, from blogging and sewing. School is just around the corner and there is still so much to cram in these last few weeks!

For reals I'm planning a late-Happy-Etsy-Anniversary-to-me-giveaway. I'll post the details on Sunday!

Just a little Sweater Mice update to let you all know I'm still alive and sewing :)

100% lambswool with corduroy nose and ear bits

Angora with velvet, so furry.

My favorite! Love the teal on teal.

The little ones and I watching soccer last week, it was finally time for noses :)

Since I totally blanked and forgot my Etsy anniversary (3 years!) I'm thinking of a super awesome giveaway on this here blog. Something custom.... Sweet!
