I love to laugh and love with my family, read, exercise, cook and sew, all the while giving thanks to God for his immeasureable love and faithfulness to me.

Dresses, dresses, dresses

Just try and catch me to take my picture Mama!
I'll pose if Daddy poses with me.
I told her to "smile big for Auntie C".
I'm just about done with this.

The completed "back" side of the quilt.
As you know, I have been working on improving my sewing skills. I took a few classes in high school, but hadn't done anything until last year. My first big undertaking was the Chinese Noodle's Bai Jai Bei (100 good wishes) quilt. As I've also said in earlier posts, I love classic children's clothes, but am not so fond of the prices, hence my motivation to improve my sewing! Here are a few of the dresses that have been completed. The first 2 are made out of cotton and the other 2 out of corduroy. Of course hairbows had to be made to match :) I'd have posted sooner, since they've been done for a while, but you know how fickle and temperamental two-year old models can be. Next up will be some adorable pinny-syle tops for summer, that I saw here. I've already got one finished for the 4th of July.

If and when we have kids, specifically a girl, we call Claire's hand-me-downs!! :) Cari also wants lessons, too!
