A Week Gone Already?

No photos, but I did make a pair of LH Europeans--they are a lightweight stretch woven from Anne at Needle Nook. I like them, but now I need to make something to go with them. The fabric I bought to coordinate is too heavy for summer clothes.

I'm also making a muslin of a Vogue Sandra Betzina pants pattern. I'm sewing the side seams and will finish fitting this evening--off for the rest of the afternoon to spend with kids and DGKs at their house.

Photos tomorrow...

Magic Kingdon

No photos--DH and I spent the day at Disneyland. Had loads of fun! We shopped for the DGKs, mailed bday cards to special kids, and went to the Aladdin show in Ca Adventure. Fun!

I have been tracing some patterns to make some garments for myself--but no real sewing this week. I did get my 1630 back from the LB Bernina store so she is ready and waiting for some serious sewing. Just have to get myself organized as to what I want to make!

Happy Mothers Day to all who are moms and to all of our moms--or their memories. My mom was the BEST. Miss her every day.

Better Photos

OK--So I took the previous photo and DH took these. Guess the big fancy camera with someone who knows what he is doing is better than me with my little point and push! So, here are a couple more photos of the Princess Dress!

She's a Princess!

Here's the dress I made for my older DGD for a school banquet related to a social studies unit. I used Ottobre #19 from issue 01/2003 in a size 140 with a little ease in the side seams. Fabric is from JoAnns and color choice made by DGD. I think she will enjoy wearing it!

Silly T Shirts

Here are the tshirts I just embroidered for my grandson's birthday party. I cannot explain the expression because I just don't know the significance. I only know that it's what he wanted on the shirts!
