So Pretty!

I got to make this beautiful Regency dress for my client to wear to a Jane Austen picnic.

I know I know, the picture is awful. I forgot to bring my camera to the fitting, so I had to use my cell phone, and it's not quite finished, I still needed to do the hem at that point.

You can see me in the mirror behind my client!

Anyway, it turned out just lovely and even my perfectionistic friend Della thought it was beautiful work, which was a huge compliment to me!

Everyone loves chenille

This is one of the projects that I've been working on this week. Sweet little dolls for a few of the different sororities.

Pictures were taken at night on a plastic chair, so they're a lot cuter in person. I was in a hurry to get them in the mail!

I got them shipped off to OK. and they are only available from Greek Isle Co.!

Pretty chairs!

Hello poor neglected little blog. I've been busy and distracted for....I don't know...a year?

Anyway, last night I got to spend a few hours helping a friend (or rather, she was helping me) re-cover cushions for her rocking chairs.

Don't they look pretty?

Dollies for Haiti

The girls and I made these dolls to send to an orphanage in Haiti.

There are so many children there who have lost everything, including their families. We wanted to let them know that somebody loves them!

Our Trip to the Coast

We got to take the girls to the coast a couple of weeks ago. It was right after the earthquake in Chile, so the surf was amazing and there were tsunami warnings!

The weather was beautiful, but a little windy and cold.

We met a very friendly squirrel

And saw REAL seals! How cool is that!

Christmas Pictures

What? It's not even half-way through February yet?

Every year we get Christmas pictures and get an 8x10 print and then at Christmas time we hang them all up beside the Christmas tree. We've only missed 1 year. That was the year that Willow was almost 2 and she threw up all over the portrait studio!

Anyway, here is this years picture with the girls in the dresses I made. Aren't they sweet!

Christmas 2009

Here's a few pictures of our Christmas morning.

Willow worked really hard and made Violet this doll. Well I helped a little bit too. Anyway, Violet loved it and Willow was so happy!

Willow's new diary.

Some of Violet's home made dress ups.

Dad's gift from Violet.

Willow agog over her digital camera. Best $5 gift ever!

The rest of the pictures look something like this.

I made the images kind of small because there are so many of them. You can click on them to make them bigger. Merry Christmas!
