  •   urmysunshines I've been there too, that's when I go and sleep in one of the kids beds. 12h
  •   needle_and_ted A very familiar scene. 12h
  •   erinkeith05 @urmysunshines yeah I sometimes just grab the couch. But I rarely do because I can get just so much done when everyone is that way. :-) 11h

erinkeith05 Remember all of that amazing T-shirt yarn that I showed you? I have been weaving up a storm with it! I made this large woven wall art for my hall entirely from my fabric scraps. So glad that I never threw them away! This is 1 of 2 projects that I'll be sharing today with this T-shirt yarn. Details on the blog. #makeyousomethin #weaving #creativemamas #upcycle #London 2d

erinkeith05 Nine days out of ten I don't mind not having a car. The public transportation is excellent, I like the exercise, enjoy the scenery, and the weather doesn't bother me. But some days, there's no way around it, a trunk would just be so handy. #London #keepingitreal #sigh 3d
  •   jpburlew You are a super woman!! You can do it!! 3d
  •   truebias I hear you! 2d
  •   califayecollection Same here girl! Drew threw up on me on the way home yesterday - on the bus. Could definitely use a car for moments of disgusting privacy. 2d
  •   angie.burgett Oh my goodness! 1d

erinkeith05 I've been making and playing with this a lot the last few weeks. Have you ever made T-shirt yarn before? It's so easy and the texture is amazing! I kind of want to chew on it... A fun tutorial with this coming on The Sewing Rabbit this week. #creativemamas #makeyousomethin 5d

erinkeith05 I never do this. I'm more of a list maker than a sketcher. But sometimes little diagrams, complete with arrows and lots of question marks calms the chaos of ideas a little better. #isew #decisionsdecisions #London 1w
  •   apriljboyer I do this every once in awhile too. And I also have lots of arrows and question marks! It helps me to focus a bit more. 1w

erinkeith05 I tried this half-finished dress on Hannah today to test the fit, but then she didn't want to take it off, and now she's sleeping in it. So I guess I'll swap out those safety pins for a zipper tomorrow... 😴 #isew #London #mygirl 1w

erinkeith05 It's really been cracking us up lately whenever we get together with some of Jayce's friends outside of school, and he assembles an outfit something like this, which he calls his DJ clothes. Omg. #London #myboy 😎 2w
  •   scampbell712 This is unbelievably great! 2w
  •   adamwest He looks awesome! 2w
  •   thesoutherninstitute What is it with boys this age and DJs? Luke does the same thing. He strikes his "DJ pose" and Tom and I are like, please don't do that outside of this house, ever. 2w
  •   thesoutherninstitute We mean that in the most loving way of course. 2w
  •   erinkeith05 @scampbell712 @adamwest I know! He has never cared at all about his clothes, but since he has to wear school uniforms I think he just tries to cram in as much self expression in as he can. :) 1w
  •   erinkeith05 @thesoutherninstitute I know. The only thing I can think of is how it looks just so much like what I wear when I go DJ-ing. Lol. 1w

erinkeith05 The Barbie version of the Nutcracker leaves a lot to be desired, but there's no denying how inspiring it is to my own little ballerina princess. #mygirl #ballerina #shamoftheperfect 2w
  •   callajaire That mirror is amazing! 2w
  •   monica_adirondackinspired My girls looove those Barbie movies. The 12 princesses is the fave right now. Ballerina. Princess. Need I say more? 2w
  •   chandram7 She looks so old!!! And the interviews with the ABT ballerinas at the end of that movie sealed Isabel's heart as a ballerina forever when she was 2-32w
  •   erinkeith05 @callajaire thanks! I wish I could take credit but it came with the flat. Aside from the amount of times that I Windex it in a week, I really love it too. :-) 2w
  •   erinkeith05 @monica_adirondackinspired oh no, more Barbie movies? The graphics are appalling. But yes, they do seem to please the little ladies, and the 12 princesses sounds like a winner. 2w
  •   erinkeith05 @chandram7 awww, sweet Isabel!! 2w

erinkeith05 Jayce, bike, castle, sunshine. Just before this there were scones and a mocha too. We locked ourselves out of the flat on our way to church, but after that it was all up hill. 2w

erinkeith05 I typically like to take my time and work on projects a little at a time each day, but sometimes I just want to crank something all the way out in one day. There's a lot of satisfaction in holding something in the evening that was not there in any form that morning, not even the fabric. I whipped up this iPad sleeve for my sweet friend's birthday this weekend in colors and prints that she loves and I'm so excited to give it to her. Well, I do kind of want to keep it, but don't have an iPad, so there's that. Excellent and easy pattern from @gingercakesews #Sewingtosell book. #isew #LibertyofLondon #makeyousomethin 3w

erinkeith05 These new tap shoes came home from dance class on Saturday morning, and we have been tap-tap-tapping all weekend long. 3w
  •   kbirdcarr I love how you captured her looking at them. 3w
  •   jpburlew Precious! 3w
  •   befrogers This picture is almost too much! 3w
  •   erinkeith2 We're going to have to facetime so she can demonstrate! 3w
  •   erinkeith05 Thanks @kbirdcarr I had my choice, because she spent a lot of time looking at them that morning. :-) 3w

erinkeith05 Well, I didn't end up getting to participate in #kidsclothesweek as much as I would've liked to because a chest infection came in and had other plans for my time and energy. But I did manage to take an old sweater of Chris's and turn it into an Aster Cardigain for Hannah, because we don't waste perfectly good merino wool around here. Just a little bit of my favorite wildflower Liberty fabric because, yes, basically I'm hoarding it. #kcw #isew #astercardigan #willowandco #London 3w

erinkeith05 When I started learning to sew I knew that it would be an occasional wardrobe boost for the kids. What I did not know is how much confidence would come in pushing myself to improve on the parts where I'm no good. Making a coat was my Everest, and I'm sharing a few reasons why you must try making one too. It's my first post over at The Sewing Rabbit, so please stop by to say hi! 3w
  •   callajaire Love it Erin!! I have a purple one ready to sew and I've been debating fur around the hood! I think you just knocked me over the edge ;) 3w
  •   erin_maupin It's so great! 3w
  •   amos_el Great post!! I haven't tackled a coat yet...but you may have just sold me. 3w
  •   erinkeith05 Thank @callajaire !! It doesn't take that much extra time but it makes such an impact, you won't regret it! 3w
  •   erinkeith05 Thanks @erin_maupin 3w
  •   erinkeith05 @amos_el if I could hug you through Instagram, I would. Thank you! 3w
  •   sophiecrespy Just read your post : love it sooooo much !! I have made the Knight Hoody but now i want to make a real coat for my boy ! I really like the way you write 3w
  •   erinkeith05 Thanks so much @sophiecrespy !! I loved the Knight Hoodie too, I bet you'll love making another coat! And it won't be that many more steps than the night Cody was either. Good luck and tag me when you finish it, I'd love to see! 3w
