Shifting Focus

After about 3 days of beautiful weather, everyday spent outside in my back yard with a toddler and a 4' dangerous retaining wall drop off, my husband and I decided it was time to build a fence for safety. On Sunday (May 5th) we went and got building supplies.  I was determined not to "waste" a whole weekend building an 80 foot long fence I got to work during my precious alone time (baby napping time).  I started on Monday, digging, transplanting shrubs out of the fence line and preparing holes for the posts.  So during baby naps all last week, and in the evenings after baby bed time we managed to finish by Friday night with some help from family members too!  Goal accomplished! No fence building on the weekend, just relaxing, and celebrating birthdays and Mother's day!


I had an idea for a flower box made out of burlap, it seems to walk a fine line between tacky and awesome.

In other news, I joined a Roller Derby class at my local leisure center.  My sister-in-law joined too.  I am on a mission to make awesome clothing for it.  Designing could be fun!  Not my normal design astetic, but sometimes we need something a bit CRAZY in out lives!

Here is some fabric that is Inspiring me today;

Ruffle fabric the neon is my favorite!

Stretch lace these would make killer tights

Stars shorts out of these anyone?
