Crafty Chloe and I make a doll bed on The Martha Stewart Show (the video clip!)

Here tis.... Unfortunately the first five minutes where I talk about the book has been cut, but the project how to is complete!

 

And because I have gotten more than a few questions about Trixie's little coat, I'm happy to report that it is a variation on the Lucy's Kimono project from Weekend Sewing, made by Liesl Gibson and Claudia Albequerque, long before I had a baby to put it on. I was so thrilled that it finally fit her and that we had such a perfect occasion to wear it! The instructions can be found here.

and here is a photo, thanks Liesl!

 

Oops, a few more emails just came in about the clip... my necklace was a Valentines Day gift from my husband and baby (who is called Bee by her father and aunt), link below, and the blouse is by Temperley, purchased under the orders of Alli, who has had her hands full as my volunteer stylist / thigh wrangler this past year. I still have a closet of things that don't fit, luckily this top could double as a very glamorous rain tarp.

    but because she remained true to herself and her beliefs, shell grow in a very real, very amazing way. The information will never be enough to handle the unexpected issues. You should make greater effort to be able to handle that.

The project looks fun, and you look aglow in loveliness.

And you look lovely, your darling girl looks lovely, and your fella looks handsome! Martha's holding her own. We're our own worst critics, post baby. Be kind to yourself, during these days. (And not to pester, but I'm hoping that since you were so generous telling us about this wardrobe... could you, pretty please, tell me where you found your obi belt from your last appearance? Did you make it?)

I have a 5 year I'd named Beatrix. We call her B. her little sister cal her BB. Beatrix is great name that isn't often heard. Watch out for those who will call her Beatrice no matter how many times you tell them her name ends with an X. It was a great segment nd w got the book at Barnes and Nobe a couple if days later. You look great, remember it takes 10 months to gain the baby weight (60 + lbs in my case). Just as long to get back to normal.

HI, Heather, just watched your MS segment and you did such a great job. Lots of poise and confidence. I think if I was standing next to Martha I would be fumble around and start babbling like an idiot. I get nervous that way, but you were a rock star. Little Bee is adorable too! Love her little kimono. I know some little girls in my world who are getting a Crafty Chloe book soon. Congratulations!

Wow! Those are so pretty! That's the one craft I can't get a grasp on...I can knit like crazy, but going to one needle (hook) just blows my mind!
