I am behind on the ol' blog! I made this Flower Girl dress from Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing for Juliana to wear to the rehearsal dinner for the wedding she was a part of. It was super simple and should have been quick to make, but I was making it at midnight and was distracted and tired and this simple dress needed to be ripped out about six times. Ridiculous. Definitely don't sew past midnight. I used Tanya Whelan Darla for this one. I love Darla. I just bought a bunch of it to make some quilts for the girls' room. It just speaks little girl to me. I also added some eyelet at the waist to dress it up a bit (and hide my mistakes. ;0p)
Just because. ..
She is just too darn cute. (She is wearing the Claire Dress by Portabello Pixie that my mom made her.)
I also finished my quilt top for Amanda Jean's quilt-a-long. Wahoo! I love it. I am so proud of it. I used all scraps for this, and it didn' even make a dent. Horrible! I tried to use only bright and fresh colors for it. I had a couple of browns in there, and it just didn't look right. I only made 42 blocks. I am going more for a lap size quilt here. I was so excited by this that I didn't even iron it before taking a picture.
