Well I noticed that I have had no comments on my blog and was concerned that since it has been awhile since my last post that maybe I was outta of the loop, luckily thats not the case. Apparently there was something screwy going on with my blog so hopefully I have it worked out and you all can now view my blog.
No sewing today, moving my dd back in with us so we will spend yet another day organizing and rearranging and then will have to start moving her n baby back in. Have a lot of sewing I want to do so this is really NO FUN!

Pillowcase dress!

Well I finally made my first pillowcase dress and bias tape, YAY! Both were very easy and fun to make.
I just love this fabric, I ordered it a couple weeks ago from and had the matching polka dot fabric in my stash. Sorry about the yucky pics these were takin with my cell phone and does the dress and fabric no justice. But like I said in my previous post I have a new camera now so my pics will be much better in following post.

My Bry being silly just makes the dress even cuter, dont ya think.
Like I said this lil dress was so simple to make, all I did was cute the arm hole by placing one of her existing dresses onto the corners of the fabric added my elastice at the top and bias tape around the arm holes which I continued as the shoulder ties and a band of matching fabric at the bottom, took about an hour to make because of all the yucky ironing of seams and such. I plan to make many more of the dresses, they are so cute and easy to wear and Ms. Bry just loves that they are comfortable and cool.
If you havent made one of these I suggust you do.
Tomorrow's sewing will be another pillowcase dress using the fabric I used on my mom-n-law apron gift.

Mothers Day sewing!

Happy Mothers Day!
Well I did get a couple of my Mom Day gifts completed and pics taken, ran out of stabalizer and Wal Mart nor Hobby Lobby have any so my other gifts will have to wait.

I had so much fun making this apron and tea towels. These gifts were made for my mother-n-law. The fabric is just darling and I actually have enough left over to make a cute lil pillowcase dress for my Bryanna.
Hope all of you had a wonderful Mothers Day, mine was great. My hubby ordered me a beautiful mothers ring(which is still not in, ugh) and today I got a Nikon Coolpix S8100 camera and an awsome dinner he grilled steaks out on the grill, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and chocolate cupcakes, yummmmm!
I am now just relaxing in my bed and enjoying the rest of the night cuddling with my honey.
Sorry for the bad pics, but like I said I have a new camera so from now on my pics will ROCK! :0)

St. Patty's day sewing

Well I was actually able to get some sewing in, Yippy! Thought I had better start on Miss Bry's St. Patricks day outfit so I found some cute clover fabric with lady bugs on it and some red and white polka dot fabric from my stash. I have decided to make a t-shirt dress so purchased a rtw shirt from Hobby Lobby and some cute iron on lady bugs just incase I don't find a cute lady bug embroidery applique I like.
Also added a pile of freshly washed fabric to my sewing room floor that is waiting to be ironed, Ugh.....
And received this beautiful little handmade heart from my sweet baby girl Bryanna(which is somewhat of a bribe since right before my gifting I was ask repeatedly when I was going to teach her to sew,lol). Gotta love kids they know a way to a mama's heart. :0)
I will post pics of my finished project upon completion. Got lots of patterns to cut out( Simplicity patterns are $.99 cents at Hobby Lobby right now) and fabric to iron so until next time.

Yes I have been away from the blogging too long now I dont even know how to fix my page it is so ugly and I have spent hours on it, ugh!
How do you put the pretty background with your blog title or pic with your blog title and how do you move the blog title over and so on.
Experts PLEASE HELP! :0)

I have missed blogging and sewing but have made up my mind that I am going to get back on track, actually I am not taking care of my grand baby anymore and can now go back to focusing on what I want to do and how I want to spend my time without him dictating every thing I do and when I do it, lol.... He does rock my world tho.
I love you Bryce Derrick.
