Did somebody dial 911?!

So…we’re enjoying a nice leisurely Saturday afternoon at the in-laws, when the doorbell rings.  It’s a police officer checking into a 911 call from their house.  Hayden was apparently playing with one of the phones and dialed 911.  What a little turkey!  

I had a wonderful mother’s day and hope you all did too.  As usual, when a holiday weekend rolls around, I end up getting way behind.  So today’s post is playing a little catch up. 

First things first…

Since the first chosen winner from our inaugural giveaway did not claim her prize, I chose a different winner by random number generator last week.  Lucky number 5--congrats Tabitha!  The set of boutique baby washcloths has been mailed.  Thanks again to everyone who took the time to enter.  Be on the look-out for more giveaways in the coming months.

And, how can a week go by without another recall notice?  Kolcraft is recalling Tender Vibes bassinets with model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, KB039-CMR1 and Light Vibes bassinet with model number KB043-BNT1. 

The latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but still remain unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing the bassinet to fall and the infant to be injured.

The model number for your bassinet can be located on one of the legs of the metal frame.  Kolcraft is providing a free repair kit and instructions for securing the latches to the metal frame.  To request your free repair kit, contact Kolcraft directly at (888)624-1908.

On the sewing front, I completed a new baby girl lovey last week. 

This lovey features lovely prints from the fabric collection Hushabye by Tula Pink, cozy chocolate brown flannel, and very soft cream minky.  Each square is quilted with a classic X pattern, and the borders and edges are hand snipped to achieve a fluffy tactile delight for your little girl.

It’s available for sale here at my Etsy shop.

Help me reach my next facebook milestone.  When Posh Patooties reaches 200 Facebook fans, I’m going to host another giveaway. 

Have a terrific week!

Blessings and love-y

Whew…finally a week with no recalls! 

We kicked off a terrific week in our household Sunday with the christening of our precious baby girl.  Sophie was a little angel sleeping throughout the ceremony.  Not even a peep when the deacon poured that freezing cold water on her head!  We feel very blessed to have two beautiful healthy children.

To top it all off, that night Sophie slept 8 hours straight…gotta love that ;-) .

Hayden transitioned seamlessly out of his crib into his “big boy” bed.  We had a week of fun filled outings at the zoo, butterfly museum, and local parks and even managed to buy mommy a new car!

Plus, both kids took two-hour naps every day, so I got in some much needed cleaning and sewing time.  All in all a fantastic week.

Hubby promises that I’ll have all the sewing time I want over the next two weeks before he goes back to work, so keep an eye out for more product listings.

The product of all that sewing time this week is this gorgeous baby boy lovey on sale at our Etsy shop today.

It features beautiful prints from the fabric collection Spa by Rosemary Lavin, cozy chocolate brown flannel and deliciously soft, cream minky.  Each square is quilted with a classic X pattern and the borders and edges are hand snipped to achieve the fluffy, raggy effect.

Can’t wait to get back behind the sewing machine and work with some of the other beautiful fabrics recently in the shop.

I hope you all have a great week.
