It's me.  Jamie.  The apron/pattern/mom/Anthro loving/occasional blogger. Remember?

Well that was quite a break!  Originally I had intended the break for working on my new patterns, but I'm sure I would have taken a break even if I wasn't working on the patterns.  Between swim classes, youth sports, and beach visits, this has become quite a busy summer. Not to mention how messy this place can get with so much going on.  I don't know what it is about the 3rd child, but ever since that little shooga booga arrived 4 years ago I can't seem to catch up with things.  
Take the laundry for example.  Never a problem 5 years ago, but now... well, now I just tell the kids to check the couch for their swim trunks.  And if they can't find a matching sock, which is almost always the case, I'll settle for matching colors.  No one notices anyways... right?

*** Pattern News ***
I am finished with one pattern and will be sending it of to the printers this week. I'm anxious to share some pics in the upcoming days.  I've leaked a few on my flickr page.  The talented Pierre Olivier photographed the goods.  You can check them out here.   

More to come!

Re: pattern. Knew u would complete it. Congrats!

I can also relate to the amount of work that comes along with just one more kiddy. I keep telling myself it'll all be over, so I gotta enjoy those little socks while they are still small and cute.

That's really funny. One of my students drew those 4 faces in the front this year for a project.
