The Christmas Dress

It occurred to me on Friday night that if I wanted to get my Daughter's Christmas dress done, it should be done by today - the Sunday before Christmas - so she could wear it to church.

I hadn't even cut it out yet.

And so the challenge was on...

Happily, after some whirlwind sewing, I finished the dress last night at 10:30 pm. Woo!! Dress in a day!!

Bearing that in mind, I think it turned out really beautifully! Here it is!

The Christmas Dress

I used Butterick Pattern #3714, with a few Linzsews modifications thrown in! The flowers on the waistline I reused from my Halloween costume headband. Hey - waste not, want not! :) The green fabric is the same as the fabric I used on my Halloween dress too. I ended up with WAY too much, so it worked out perfectly! The gold I found at Joann's and just loved!

Yea for good projects that come together!! Oh, and here's how I did her hair today...

She feels like a princess.

Beejeebers December Block

This month, our Beejeeber group was given the instructions to do rainbows!! Any kind of block we wanted, in Rainbow Colors!

I decided to do a string block, and I am pleased with how it turned out!

It didn't line up perfectly, but overall, I love the look! I hope Lisa likes it too!!

***edit** It was bugging me so I switched some around. I like this better!

Stockings and stuff!

Hello! Remember me? lol!!

It has been a while! Sadly, I have been sick for 2 1/2 weeks, so my sewing and especially blogging time has dwindled! But I am getting better and I want to share a few things that I managed to get done!



I have been wanting to make our family new stockings for years, but never got around to it! FINALLY, this year, I just bucked up and did it! And I am so tickled with how they came out!!


YEA! I love it when things turn out!!

I also finally recovered my Christmas card board. I covered it myself a few years ago, and hated how it came out. So, finally, I redid it! And this time - I love it!

So, a few Christmas projects under my belt! Hopefully more to come soon!!
