Busy Weekend

Wish I could say that I had loads of sewing time, but that's never the case around here. We had a very busy weekend starting with date night Friday night. My husband and I enjoyed a nice dinner out for an early anniversary celebration. Saturday my brother and I took the kids out on the lake fishing. We had a lot of fun, but it was HOTTER than HOT out there. A few hours was all we could take before calling it a day. Sunday was spent at the in-laws house for celebrating my mother-in-laws birthday and yesterday we had everyone over for a BBQ at our place. My youngest child has a cold/cough that kept us up most of the night last night...it was a rough one. The big plans for the extra day I took off today were to finally sit down in front of my machine and create. I tried....really I did, but it's no good to sew on no sleep.

Since my last post before the SMS giveaway, I have been able to successfully accomplish a few things. 5 sundresses, a top and one clutch.

Here is my new clutch! I'm loving this. It's a first for me and I'm sure after more practice I'll get through these quicker. I needed something smaller to make a run through the stores with. My purse was way too heavy. Between that and holding hands and bags I couldn't take it anymore. My neck and shoulder have been killing me for months from the weight of my purse. Now I have a cute little hands free bag :)

Here is a picture of the top that I made for my little Bee. I also made a dress exactly the same. Didn't think about it before, but this is one of those items of clothing that you can wear as a dress and a top later. After I completed it and held it up I realized that a 6-12 month old could get away with this as a dress and later on wear it as a top just as Bee is below...

Way cute, right?! Wish I thought of doing this sooner. I love clothes that they can wear through the years. This would be an excellent gift for a new baby girl.

Below is another sundress that I made. Don't mind the picture. My little girl was really under the weather when I shot this one.

I'm really loving these dresses. So easy to make, look fab and they are comfy for the little one. Bonus...they are easy on and off too!

Hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend. If you had some time to get sewing in I would love to see what you've been up to.

Until next time.....
