woollypetals Spruced up my mantle in the family a bit. It's been sitting mostly empty since Christmas was put away. #acolorstory #newrauchhome 1d
  •   handbagsandpigtails I love it all! The room must be massive(I'm looking at the size of Norah). And you must tell me where your long curtains are from. You know I'm hunting right now... @woollypetals 1d
  •   nickyjack That clock ... That fireplace 1d
  •   woollypetals @handbagsandpigtails it is pretty big. ;) my coffee table is 55" wide. My curtains Are from Ikea, I got the 120" long ones and hemmed them. They are lenda and are $35 a pair I think, the shorter ones are cheaper. I will DM you some pictures. I have them in here, my eating area sliding door and my "formal" dining room ;). We never use it. My ceilings are 9.5' high for reference in the later two rooms. The curtains here are the same length this wall is just vaulted. 1d
  •   handbagsandpigtails I'm still waiting to see the new sofa @woollypetals ! 1d

woollypetals We sent daddy and Norah off to grandmas with a bag full of tAcos for the #rauchfamilymonthlydinner and this guy and I are having a special date night at home since he has a fever. #chickennoodlesoup #whole30 #whole30tacos #lukedanger1 5d
  •   morrlezlie Poor guy! Dinner looks good 5d
  •   morrlezlie Are you doing whole 30 again or still?? 5d
  •   woollypetals @morrlezlie thanks! :) this is our last day of a whole30 7 day detox. Self inflicted. ;) basically we just did whole30 for 7 days and tomorrow I am switching to paleo with select few whole grains. My husband ended up extending our first round to 100 days till he ran his marathon. But since then we we have both returned to eating badly. I quit Diet Coke for good in the new year. My rule is I can have it when I am eating in a restaurant. That's it. And i am trying to make and keep healthy rules and habits now. Feeling so much better after this last 7 days and very motivAted to eat healthier as the working out has never been an issue for me. ;) end novel! 5d

woollypetals Working on a simple dress style for my #dollladies that I can whip up quickly, is removable, and I can customize to each doll ladies tastes. It's almost there ( a couple more tweaks), although Clover Ann loves her frock I sewed up last night. #woollypetalsdoll #woollypetalsmakes 5d

woollypetals Comes out of the laundry room in boots and a pull up. Tells me she's cold and is going upstairs to get a sweater. Comes down in a sweater. Two hours later this is still her attire as she insists she doesn't need pants! #norahbrave #highfashion 6d
  •   morrlezlie We've had many days in those kind of outfits 6d
  •   woollypetals @morrlezlie lol, I'm sure! I can't believe the attitude that comes out of this little one over her garments. Luke never cared and still rarely does. :) 5d
  •   morrlezlie Delilah and Avery always had feelings and opinions about their clothes. Mitch never cared. It must be a boy thing 5d

woollypetals This little guy was over the moon yesterday during his sisters nap when I watched some of Star Wars with him. The Ewok part in episode 6. It's the first he's seen any Star Wars even though he has been beyond obsessed for months! #lovehim #lukedanger1 6d

woollypetals I made another shirt! A #scouttee by @grainlinestudio and I love it. I made it from cotton and steel double gauze. I lengthened the sleeve a inch or so and added a band on the sleeve bottoms. I also lengthened the actual tee since I like long shirts. ;) #gomakeone #itwasseweasy #woollypetalsmakes p.s. I love my Wiksten tank I made the other day too. #alreadyworeit slowly working my way through my stack of fabrics for a more #handmadewardrobe 2w

woollypetals What do you want to do before nap time baby? "Play babies and kitchen... No, I want to take a cozy nap!" Okay sounds good. "I'll get it ready while you clean up lunch" #norahandmommysnewthing #norahbrave #cozynapsforthewin #wedontactuallynap ;) 2w

woollypetals I've been browsing handmade clothing more since the last #chicagosewingsocial and got the urge to ignore my WIP's I'm trying to finish and whipped up a Wiksten tank during naps today. I found some of this amazing plaid I had made another shirt out of a couple years ago, that shirt is gone. I barely Eek'd out enough by having a seam in the back. I opted to have it open a little at the bottom, and due to the minimal fabric available the plaid doesn't match up. But now that you've read that novel you can know that I love it and it fits perfectly and it took me less than two hours! #winning #wikstentank #handmadeclothes #woollypetalsmakes 2w

woollypetals A little hand stitching in bed with the Gilmore girls! Because my husband left today for 4 days and I'm already exhausted! #woollypetalsquilts #handstitching #hexagons 2w
  •   morrlezlie What are you working on? It's beautiful!!! Sorry your hubby is gone. I know how hard that is! I hope the days pass quickly for you 2w
  •   woollypetals @morrlezlie a little mini, thank you! :) I don't know why it's so much harder when he's gone, he's only home a couple hours at night before they go to bed. it shouldn't make such a big difference. 2w
  •   princessmaxmama It makes a HUGE difference. It's like not being able to stop and rest when you are biking up a big hill. 2w
  •   hugsarefun Oh I love this so much! And I hope the week goes quickly for you! 2w
  •   woollypetals @princessmaxmama lol, so true! It's nice when other moms get it! ;) 2w
  •   woollypetals @hugsarefun thank you! And me too! 2w
  •   morrlezlie It does though. There is something about that evening hour when they come home that gets you a break. When they don't days begin running together. I know when mine has been gone I can get through the day no problem but suddenly at 5 every hour that passes until bedtime feels like 3!! 2w

woollypetals Working on finishing up that lego man quilt block/pillow cover pattern/tutorial. This will be a free pattern when I am done. But I was hoping for a handful of pattern testers to help me out and make one once the patterns finished to make sure it reads properly and is clear. Any takers? Email me woollypetals@gmail.com if your interested. It will be a week or two before I get to sending it out. So no rush! ;) #woollypetalsquilts #woollypetalspatterns 3w
