Mowin’ and Sewin’

They say when you do a job you should do your best at it. Put your best food forward and maximize your effort. They also say to own it–make it your own. I’d say I did that today.


I needed to mow the lawn again. It couldn’t wait until the weekend for Du. So, I did my best and made it my own:


A close up of the awesomeness.

And it’s still like, yes it is. I mowed around the letters so the grass wouldn’t be knee high by the time I got around to actually cutting the whole yard. I hope a plane flies over and sees this. I have a connection in the helicopter sector…hmmm…my brain is working…

I could be starting a new fad. Lawn personalization. Here’s my new tag: 

Sew Petit
Personalized baby items…and lawns.


My other foray into putting my best foot forward and making it my own is this:

This is the first jacket I’ve ever made. I started it yesterday and had little distractions to contend with both days. It was actually pretty easy. Even setting the sleeves in.

This is a close up of the buttons. They’re for show.

A close up of the slit in the sleeve. That was the hardest part–figuring out how to turn it from inside out to right side out. I love the shiny material. Du’s not so hot on it. But, he doesn’t have to wear it does he? He must stand by me though when I’m showing it off.


I’d say I was pretty creative today.
