This is how things always work in my "studio," inspiration always strikes while I'm in the middle of a different project. So even though my little birdie is sitting in my sewing basket next to the cheery polka dot & stripe fabric that will soon become new Addie threads, I have challenged myself to complete the dress I have unfinished. I really don't have far to go on it, just a ruffle and hem on the bottom. I just haven't felt like ironing and hemming 2 yards of ruffle! I got through that part tonight, and hope to get the gathering finished tomorrow. Now off to bed!

An Apron Giveaway

Check out the way cute aprons at My Mom Would Be Proud--post a comment here to enter to win this adorable apron.


I have a few new projects underway and hope to post my progress here soon. Last weekend I was inspired after finding myself at a local children's boutique gawking at the price tags on their simple, but very cute summer dresses & jumpers. I've been in a baby dress making funk (aka: burn out) but happy to get my motivation back. Last night I embroidered a little birdie to incorporate into a summer dress for Addie. My inspiration for this dress actually came from a torn bed sheet that was headed for the trash. It is bright white & super high thread count--perfect for a summer dress and too good to throw out. How very Sound of Music-y of me.
