Yellow floral dress

baby E  # five above in 2011

I sewed this dress years ago for baby E (#five) and now my # 7 girlie is wearing it.

I was inspired by a dress I remember from my babyhood.  I remember it because of pictures.

I wish I could remember my baby self.  Here it is as a sort of flash back and an update on my baby.

Boy is she growing.

cupcake carnivore

My girls love the show Cupcake Wars.

So they gave themselves a version of the competition at home.

What you see are bacon topped cupcakes... yep thats the challenge they whose to use.

I gave them points for the pretty presentation.

She is a cutie and an inspiration.

Happy sewing!

picking buttons

I sewed a couple of bishop dresses over the summer to learn this wonderful sewing pattern.

Then I promptly left them laying in my sewing room waiting for hems and buttons.

I recently went and got buttons for this one.

It is late enough it can no longer be a Christmas dress so we can go for Spring!

I'll post one of my girlie wearing it later but for now you can have this little peak.

sewing for my babies and their babies

I made nightgowns for my girls and their dollies.
Do you have a stash of fabric that you think "hmm I will use this for this purpose..."

Well, I looked through my collation and realized my saving fabric for children wasn't
going to last forever because children grow up.  So I pulled out these children's knits
and began cutting.

They turned out pretty cute!  The girls like matching their babies too.

creating for my class

I serve in my church the young women aged 12-13 and help the leaders of the other older girls with joint activities.  We are excited to have the completion of the Fort Collins Colorado Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

To give the girls a momento to remember this time and to use at the dedication
I decided to embroider handkerchiefs.  It ended up being quite the job.

As we know anything worth doing has some opposition.  I had my first machine just stop working and I spent too much time probably figuring out how to get the temple embroidery I liked.

I finally nailed down the perspective I liked and using my software for my machine and my husbands loving patience and help with the computer, I got a working design and embroidered and embroidered and embroidered some more.  Sewing in mass is an adventure.  

I am going to count all my hours of work toward my Young Women's Personal Progress Faith Project.
