Tutu Fun!

The kids wanted to make something for an upcoming craft show (which, as it turns out, is the same day as the boy's guitar recital... we'll have to catch the next one!)

They are still for sale if you don't want to wait until the next craft show.

Dress for June Wedding

I had originally bought this fabric for an Easter dress, but that didn't happen, so it has become a summer dress. We have a wedding to go to this weekend, and I think this will be quite perfect. This is a modified pattern. I think Simplicity? I just added a row of piping under and on top of the smocking. The back is my favorite (the girls', too).

Summer dress and matching purse

This is for my Patricia's BFF in North Carolina. Her mom (my BFF) gave me a sheet to play with, and this is what evolved. I had some light colored denim fabric that I used to make a lined matching purse. I wanted to try something new for the strap, so I braided long strips of the sheet. According to Patricia, it's awesome! She's getting the next one!

Summer outfit for Patricia

This was completely her inspiration. She picked out the pattern and the fabric, and I have to say, it's cute! She wears it several times a week. It was super easy! Simplicity, It's So Easy 2429. The only alterations I made was to line the top crossover part. Also, I used an elastic loop and button for the back closure instead of a zipper.

Smocked Purpleness

I made this for my cousins' daughter. She's living in Italy, and I'm pretty certain that's the farthest any of my clothes have traveled!

Easter Cake

I found this idea online and thought it would be perfect for the Easter BBQ! Most of him is cake, but the legs and feet were made with shaped sugar cookies.

Joshu's First Guitar Recital

He did great!

BSA Pinewood Derby Car

Our kids are involved in Boy Scouts of America and American Heritage Girls, and last weekend was our troops Pinewood Derby.

The boy debated between a flaming guitar theme or the Zachry NASCAR truck.

Tough decision.

He went with the truck! Overall, he got 3rd in his den.

The driver, David Starr, got wind of the boy's car (well, truck), and made a video to personally congratulate the boy. What a guy!

The boy in on cloud 9, and is determined to win it next year!
