Purple Love

Somebody out there tells me there is a little girl who loves purple. So I went through my fabric stash and looked through all my fabrics that had purple in them. Considering that I am a hoarder of fabric, it wasn't that bad. I only found four or five fabrics with purple accents in them. What is my husband talking about? Looks like I won't make it on that TV show after all.


For this special customer of mine, lover of purple, I selected a really cute Kawaii fabric with squirrels on it. I made a bonnet and matching diapers for the little custom baby.

It seems so very appropriate for the season...While I am busy rearranging piles of fabric inside the house, I watch the little critters collect acorns outside. You better watch your step in front of our house! We have two gigantic oak trees. You may get hit in the head by acorn projectiles launched by those little cheeky critters. I am convinced they do it on purpose, all because I managed to pick all the plums on my neighbor's tree before they could get them. NaNaNaNa! I beat the squirrels this year! Would you like my recipe for German plum cake? Yummy! We call it Zwetchekuche or Quetchekuche where I am from. =)
