Rain rain go away

It has rained the ENTIRE day today. And not just a slight drizzle. I mean RAINED. I am soooo over it. At least we had a few refreshing days of sunlight in the last week amidst all this rain, and it really did lift my spirits. Isn't it amazing how depressed you can feel just because of the weather? I am so glad I don't live in some place like Seattle, I would probably need Prozac or something (that's an antidepressant, right?). So while I've had cabin fever, I completed my first official order. Can you believe it? Someone is actually PAYING me to make something for them! Here it is:

It's hard to see in the picture, but the verse on the green next to the bird is Psalms 9:2. My original idea was to stitch it directly onto the onesie, but that was waaaaay harder than I thought! The material was too stretchy and ended up looking bunched and funky, so I took it off and appliqued the green material on. Much better!

I also gave Luke a hair cut yesterday. It turned out pretty decent. Behind one ear it's a little more square than rounded, but totally worth a free haircut. Hello extra $20 in my pocket! I'll take a picture and post it tomorrow though. I foresee tomorrow being just as exciting as this one, so I better space out the pictures.

Wow that is really really cute. I love it. If I had a little one, I'd definitely pay you to make me some stuff!
