"Sew" today is Memorial Day

First I want to show you a picture that Abby made the other day. Now keep in mind that she is 3 1/2 years old! She loves to draw stuff like this. I would like for her to do this on paper but she REALLY likes her DoodlePro™. We have gone through 7 of these in a 2 year period!

I guess today is as good a day as any to get sewing! I try to sew a little each day so I won't quit. I really enjoy doing this sewing thing! I think the reason I like it is because I can get a pattern and do something different each time. I was beading for a long time but I was doing the same thing over and over. I couldn't just go to the beading store and find a pattern to try so I kind of got burnt out...

This is a great little outfit that I just finished for Abby.
I love the blue and white cotton fabric I have on the top. The bottoms are a white eyelet cotton. Very elegant! This was supposed to be one of those "easy" patterns but it didn't turn out that way... oh well.

Some more sewing outfits for Miss Abby

Here is a Christmas dress...

So I started sewing...

It's been awhile since I last posted. Actually a year. My DH and I just had our 11 year anniversary!

I started sewing classes in August 06 and just LOVE it. I had a great teacher up until Feb when she moved away from us. It was a very sad time for all. The upside is that I have a lovely group of women who come to my house on Wednesday nights and we sew our hearts out. I just love this!!

I thought I would post some of the things that I have made since I started. I will try to keep this up as best as possible! Thanks for looking! Enjoy!

Here we go... This is the first dress I made for Miss Abby.
