Matching with My Tribe

In my wonderful, amazing life as the wife to an amazing man, mother of six beautiful children, and work at home fabric goddess there is a quote that I use much more often than I would like. Actually, there are many... Stop licking your brother, Where did your clothes go?, Because I said so, No you do not have to be naked to poop... but the one I am talking about is Best of intentions, terrible follow through. When I saw the call for mommy and me blogs I thought holy cow, I LOVE mommy and me this will be perfect! I got all excited, I signed up, I designed the panel for the 8 adorable raglans I was going to make for my family to go with soft and cozy flannel PJ pants with the new Patterns for Pirates free pattern. Do you want to know how far I made it?

LOL! That's right, not even on the fabric yet!! So last night as I was beating my self up over my terrible follow through frantically trying to sew up what I can and figure out what to do I decided I that saying may be pretty unfair and realized that I am not the only one feeling this way. Tis the season to be busy right?! I'll be jolly when the presents are open and the kids are playing but right now mom's everywhere are stressed and under so much pressure! Work, presents, cooking, cleaning, family... It is a lot going on. Instead of freaking out over the shirts that I will still be sewing until the morning of Christmas Eve for my home family tribe. I want to take the chance to Thank and shine on my fabric family tribe!

These ladies are my tribe and the backbone of what happens over here. I am so blessed to have such a fantastic and talented team of women working with me!!! I can not wait to see what the next year brings to us as individuals and as a team. Happy Holidays from all of us to you!!

    Thank you for sharing all the great photos! I love the panel you designed, and I’m sure it will look great.

    Everyone looks great. You have six kids and a fabric shop. I couldn’t get that done with two.

  • Wendy

    Such a fun post and love all the little and me pictures! Now I know I’m not the only one to have to tell a kid to stop licking their sibling! Haha

  • auschick
