This is getting blogged badly because otherwise it’ll get blogged not at all, just like several other things I have floating around my house right now. Hawthorne was in need of more shorts to get filthy and into trouble with, so I whipped up a pair of the new free Oliver and S Sunny Day shorts pattern
The fabric is some leftover Kaufman chambray double cloth, which I bought and used for another project…..one of those as-yet-unblogged projects, in fact. Heh. Hashtag: oops.
As I go through my Montessori class online and am reading books about early childhood education, all of the info on child development has filled me with a fresh awareness and delight in all the stages and milestones. Like watching Hawthorne grasp a stick and beat the crap out of things. Suddenly it’s a thing of beauty! I could watch him pick things up and move them around for days.
He’s sitting on the edge of a masking tape spiral I made on the deck for Violet to march on when she’s feeling particularly CRAZY lately.
For a plain old pair of shorts with an elastic waist and no bling, these are SUPER CUTE. I love the fabric. LOVE IT. It’s like double gauze, but also chambray. Substantial, yet airy and absolutely perfect for summer. Mine came from fabric.com a few months ago, but I know Gnats has some in her shop now. Liesl knows what she’s doing with the Oliver and S patterns too. Even though it’s a simple pattern, you know it’s going to be spot on.
And because you asked to see more Hawthorne (I could hear you thinking it) here is a dishing of some recent activity from the life of the tiny man.
The kid loves wheels
Getting his montessori on
Having a charcoal ash and frozen blueberry slurry snack
Our tiny electrician has taken to hunting down electrical plugs, taking them out, and then carefully trying to line the prongs back up into the hole. It’s both fascinating and terrifying. So floor lamps are on temporary ban here.
He’s also turned into quite the mountain goat lately
What else to do on Father’s Day but help daddy put some shelves back together?
Finally, someone willing to empty my dresser for me. He’s thorough!
