One of those weeks

stinker.1
stinker.2
stinker.3
stinker.4

Adorable? Yes.

Helpful? Not so much.

Albeit the constant work-sabotage-expert, he was the best part of the week. I'll spare you the blurry-baby-wrapped-around-my-ankles photos.

Very busy here, but I do want to share that sweet scarf/hood combo (scoodie?) that I made for Isabela in more detail, thanks so much for the sweet words about that!

Have a great weekend and we'll try to put ourselves back together over here and be more presentable next week!

slobbery smooches, Anna & Roman

  5. OH he is just so cute. You so make my day posting pics. But I soooo know what you mean about distracting and destructive. Been there! Of course not as many times as you have. Ha! =)

  8. Roman is so gorgeous. He reminds me of my own little man who is now 4. He used to have a special draw of scraps he would throw all around the place. Now he likes to make piles and crash his cars into them.

  9. He is so lovely. You can't but smile though when your recently tidied stacks are pulled down whilst an eager face is looking up at you: 'look mummy, I'm helping!' (It is even more fun when they say 'elpuh')

    I can't wait for my wee one (a big 2) to get going with my just ordered stack of your fat quarters!!! Yeah, can't wait to get started with them, they are so gorgeous!!1

  10. My daughter and I agree that Roman is the cutest baby boy ever!

    Perhaps he's not helpful, but all that adorable-ness must make up for it!

  11. So nice to know some one else has had a week like that!

    ReplyDelete
  12. With a face like that, anything could be forgiven :0. And one day (far too soon), he'll grow out of it. My cat? Not so much!

  13. It seems like every week lately is one of those! Hang in there.

    OMG as they say, she is ADORABLE! Thanks for posting. Also wanted to drop you a note that I ordered several products from your website for Christmas presents. They were all so beautiful. I bought two aprons (one for my mom- she thought it was too pretty to wear but she did- and one for my mother-in-law), a set of towels I gave my 93 year-old grandmother, 2 scrap bags (one ofr me and one for my crafty 10 year old niece) and a stationary set for my good friend and avid quilter. I was so happy with each product and felt very secure in the knowledge that each one was appreciated by the recipient.

  22. Is that the next Kaffe Fassett, only better looking?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your scoodie is so adorable and your little baby boy is even adorabler;) I just want to kiss those sweet feet and sweet cheeks!

    ReplyDelete
  24. So cute!!! Very nice outfit!
    Have a nice weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I just saw some of your fabrics live and in person at Make & Mingle in Fairfield, CT yesterday. How lovely! Even though I live in a city and very close to another, there are very few actual fabric stores. This was a treat!

    S.W.A.K.

  26. Hi Anna! Where did you get that adorable knit jumpsuit Roman is wearing? Oh... if all I had to do was play in fabric scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  27. you are constantly an inspiration

    I just love the look on his face "Look what I did Mommy!" It makes it so hard to tell them no. I think that the more kids you have the more you see the cute and humor in these situations rather then the bother. My older kids always accuse me of being easier on the little ones.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I just love his outfit!!! Looks so cuddly and warm :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. If I had half a chance, I'd be rummaging through your fabric boxes too.
    Go Roman Go!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Is he sitting and crawling already. That went so fast! He is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a cute baby!! He is happy all the pretty pieces are out on the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  37. punky, punky, punky!!! he's so cute!! glad you chose him over blogging, though we missed you :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. ... I love baby feet with all that bubby fat piled up on top of their foot between their toes and ankles!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a cutie! I LOVE that outfit he's wearing! Could you p-l-e-a-s-e tell me where you purchased it??

    Hello...How can anyone resist the happy expression of helping and a little snooping around? I sure like those sqwuishy little feet. Hummm! I think you had another baby for fun new projects. A free stunning model to boot. I would be watching him explore all the time and not get anything done. His cute factor is off the charts. Plus the family charisma. Oh, my!

  41. oh my goodness!!! so cute, I can't stand it!!!

  49. looking way too familiar... my 10 month old can't keep her hands off my fabrics, papers, cords, etc. love it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh yeah, I get the not-so-helpful part, trust me! Living with a 2 1/2 year old when I really didn't think I would be.... well it keeps me on my toes and my fabric up a bit higher....

    ReplyDelete

    Oh is he just the most beautiful little man ever!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I so know how you feel. I have a little ones just about the same age. And he's constantly around me/on me/behind me/on top of me/before me/wherever I want to do something so it can't be done anymore/etc too :-D They are so adorable though, so you just have to forgive them, don't you?

    Love his outfit by the way. And I bet he loves the fact that he can play with such colourful thingies!

    Goodluck!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Roman's sweater romper is yummy! Love those!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Ladies! I found some sweater rompers which are similar to Roman's and can be ordered on-line at this site: http://www0.dealtime.com/-cable+knit+romper

    They only go up to 6 mos though, unfortunately... :(

    Thanks to Anna Maria for telling us the store where she purchased it though!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Dear Anna,

    your blog is as beautiful as ever.

    my baby boy is a grown man now in his twenties, he was pretty like Roman and blonde and blue eyes ~ seeing your baby makes my heart feel happy and very blessed to know I got to experience the most precious thing in life and that is our children.

    he is so adorable !!! thanks for sharing such wonderful pictures

  58. Goodness, he reminds me of my own daughter who used to be so proud of emptying my bookshelf everyday while I showered. Drove me a little crazy but she loved it and I got a shower. She's almost 4 now and I miss the little explorer but still can't wait to see what she does next! Enjoy - what a blessing to have him there to distract you! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Anna
    I found your blog just a couple of weeks ago, and I love it. The beautiful pictures, your colourful creations: lovely!
    Oh, and I'd really love to hear more about that beautiful scarf/hood you made for your daughter.
    I just started to teach myself to crochet, and making that scarf would be such a beautiful goal to achieve!
    All the best to you and your family!
    Katja (all the way from Switzerland, where it is rather chilly at the moment. Another reason to make that scarf!)

  63. Obviously, even babies know pretty fabric when they see it.

    Cute photos!

    ReplyDelete
  64. What a darling baby in that sweater/jumper! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  65. This is just too familiar! Though replace fabric with flour and bags of rice and you get the picture. Lots of mama-to-mama love and sympathy.
