Back to Blogging

It feels so good to report something. The weather is nice and my girls are wearing their Bella pants. I love these pants!!! It is perfect for spring, summer and fall. I have used this pattern several times and it is totally worth it. I even used the pattern to make pants out of fleece for the winter. So here are a few pics.

Here is dress 2 that I finally finished this past Saturday. My girls wore them this past Sunday but you know how it goes. We are rushing out the door so there is no time to "strike a pose" and then it quickly comes off as soon as we get home. They look much better when they are worn.

This pattern is called the Lydia Dress. This pattern is currently on sale for $8.50 till the end of April. It normally costs $10.00 so if you like it, get it. I will be honest, the sleeves were tricky for me. It takes a little patience. More blogging to come.

So who says....

that one can only blog if they have a project to share. Well, technically nobody but for some weird reason I feel I can only blog if I have something show. I have nothing to show except tell you that dress number 2 is still not finished. I don't want to bore you with excuses so the one excuse I will say is that our family is done to one car. Normally being home bound would mean a clean house and completed sewing projects but I've been distracted with phone calls and research.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We spent the Easter weekend with my husband's parents in Midland. We all enjoyed the nice break. The kids really enjoyed being with their Nana and Papa with the white hair (that's what they call him).
I can't wait to get that needle and thread going again. Till then, take care.
