What’s New??

I don’t keep this up like I used to.  Facebook has taken over.    And really… I think I have anything so clever to say that people are flocking to my blog?  NOT!!  LOL

My weekend was spent sewing.  I haven’t had a good sewfest in awhile!  Made Anna 4 dresses and 3 pair of shorts for under them. 

I don’t have a pic of the last one.  I finished it late Sunday.  As you can see she keeps on growing.  I had to trace off a new size…..

Also new since I was on here last…..INDY!  We bought him home for Anna a year ago now.  Her first puppy.  I was told he’s a Shih-tzu but we think he’s a Pekanese/Shi-tzu cross.

Let’s see what else…..We go to the family runion this weekend so here is a pic of Anna enjoying the beach Last summer with her cousins

My Everyday Princess…

sckl 002 sckl 001 So I got this new book.  Usually I stick to my Ottobre mags for sewing children’s clothes but so many people were talking about “Sewing Clothes Kids Love” that I had to go peek.  It’s a beautiful book – if a bit overwhelming!  It does live up to it’s name tho.  Anna LOVES this skirt and top.  It’s hard to get her to take them off.

My New Obsession.

I need to get more disciplined with the blogging! I keep saying that and I keep falling short. Lately I’m sewing for dolls a lot. I’m gonna try to keep us with some pix and post of them and Anna.

Has it been 2 mos….

Maybe I have ADD…..lately I lose track of time so fast.  Ry got me into facebook around his birthday so I’ve kept up more on there.  It’s less time intensive….like waving to people as you walk down the halls in school….or work….but I promised myself I’d maintain this blog since I’m no good at journaling in an actual book.  I have 4 – one for each child that I bought when I was pregnant with Leanna -and they barely have 1 page in them in 2 years

Christmas has come and gone Leanna had a great day…This was her main present from us and she wouldn’t even look another one for over an hour.   Her second birthday is coming up fast!
