stretching out

shirt for kerry
i thought it would be wise to ease into crafting. you know, stretch out a bit before i hit the ground running, or quilting actually. i dont want to pull anything. we celebrated my dear friend kerry's birthday on sunday, and i managed to get off my bum (no yoga yet) and make this stencil. i also have yet to welcome their newest addition charles thomas eddy here at huffmania. mostly because i have not been able to get a good picture yet. silly. we are so glad you are here charlie!! you cute thing you. and happy birthday kerry! in my own hokey, mushy way, i was envisioning this stencil as a representation of their new family, mom, dad and baby bird. very smooshy i know, but thats what babies do, they make you all smooshy. hard to tell by this photo, but the shirt is this pretty mossy green color and the birds are stenciled with jacquard brown. the ink went on like a dream for the first time ever. one coat! dreamy i tell you. these tissue tee's from target (mossimo i think) that they have out now are perfect for stenciling. thin, smooth and so receptive. sounds kinky? yeah.

snow day
we woke up today to another snow day in kc. i snapped this picture from the car on the way to work. yeah, read that sentence again. on the way to work. bleh. the rest of huffmania is snuggly at home. dont feel too sorry for me though, i am going home for lunch and not coming back. take that kansas city snow! hot chocolate with eliot here i come! although that damn melissa is making me crazy, i feel like chucking every project i have going and start cutting hexes. twitchy i tell you. melissa i mean that in the kindest way possible, kind twitchy.

hi hannah!
love the bird tee. your snow snap is so so pretty. i loved looking at it on flickr where i could see the tree lined path up close. so very pretty. wish i could take you with me to yoga. maybe you need a book to inspire you? i just bought yogini. you should check it out. hugs, shari

Beautiful, Hannah! (the shirt and the photo.) Be careful in the snow and stay warm with your little ones.

Love the T. You + Melissa are professional fps gals. And yes, those hexes are SO good. But unfortunately not good enough to make me want to try them out. ;P I'm going to try and mooch some off of Melissa. =)
