Owl Apron Sewing Project

Victoria has completed her first sewing project! Inspired by a Pinterest design, Victoria took complete ownership of this design. She made all pattern pieces herself and required only minimal help from mom with the sewing. I am incredibly proud of her determination and work ethic. 

Great job!!

4th of July - Happy Independence Day!

As part of our 4th of July tradition, we attend an annual pig cook with friends. They are a very special family and while we lost the matriarch a couple years ago the family honors her memory and contributions to the family every year. We love you and miss you Ms. Cay. 

I also try to put together dresses or shirts for the girls. This year I tried my hand at the two together - thus our T-shirt dresses!

Easter Polka Dots

Victoria loves to twirl!  This was the first year that the girls dresses didn't coordinate. Boo, so sad. They are going up and have their own tastes.  They were still both beautiful though!

The Petal Dress

Finally some Easter dress pictures!  This one is the petal dress that my youngest daughter fell in love with from a Pinterest post from  Thank you so much!  It was time consuming, but well worth it.  She loves it!

Spring Break

Spring break brings with it the opportunity to get some sewing accomplished. Top priority include Easter dresses, an Easter tradition I have been able to keep since my oldest daughter was born. That's been 10 years! Wow, has time flown by. This is the first year we haven't color coordinated. It's a little sad but the girls are getting older. (Pictures to follow after Easter morning.)

This spring break I've also been working on baby gifts. This jiffy little diaper bag and burp cloth are for a friend at work who is expecting.

Thanks for stopping in Happy Easter everyone!

1920s Style Doll Dress

It's costume design time again for the school musical! This year is set in the roaring 20s. I've been researching patterns and modified one to fit an 18" doll. Now to adjust the pattern to fit middle school girls. It's been a fun and productive afternoon.
